It's hard to beat the Kentucky KM-505 Mandolin. We love this mandolin! Don't forget, no one tops the Folkmusician setup work. If you are considering buying a new KM-505, it really should be from us.

The Artist line of Kentucky mandolins has been expanded to include perhaps the best value in a professional-quality A-model mandolin. Every feature of the KM-505 was specifically chosen to meet, not only the demands of the beginning player, but also the demanding requirements of working professionals. Fine solid spruce and solid flamed maples are hand-selected at this level to assure that every instrument looks as good as it sounds.
