Another new Kentucky for 2018. The Gold Top KM-508 model.
The new Kentucky KM-508 Gold Top Artist A-model Mandolin combines traditional design with a classy 1950’s look; creating one exceptional instrument that sparkles and shines in the hands of any player! Only the highest quality hand-selected, and naturally dry-aged European spruce and maple are used to construct each instrument to provide plenty of power, volume and playability to assure that the KM-508 not only has the right look, but also a sound that’s worth it’s weight in GOLD!
We will follow up with a review of the Kentucky KM-508 Mandolin very soon!
