Overview

The Midas Touch in mandolin tone.

The traditional F-model mandolin as we know it today was introduced by Loar in the early 1920’s and represents the epitome of design and function. For Kentucky, the KM-858 Gold Top Artist F-model Mandolin represents their own achievements when it comes to high-quality, professional level instruments specifically designed to meet the demands…and budgets…of players at every level.

By using the finest naturally dry-aged Alpine tone woods – a Kentucky Exclusive – and topping it off with a beautiful, sparkling Gold lacquer top finish, the KM-858 really is a gem in the line and will put the Midas Touch on your tone.

Features

  • Solid German spruce carved top gives you clean articulation and a crisp, bright tone
  • Select solid flamed Alpine maple back and sides provide extra punch
  • Slim select Alpine one-piece maple neck for comfortable, easy action
  • Premium radiused ebony fingerboard gives extra durability and striking good looks
  • Metallic gold top for lasting beauty and luster

Great tone and Kentucky mandolins go hand in hand. Order today.
