Kentucky KM-855 Artist F-Model Mandolin
The pedigree is noble and a close look at the Kentucky KM-855 shows that the DNA is vintage. From the split-lip neck/body joint to the delicate mother-of-pearl inlays gracing the fretboard and peghead, the KM-855 has the traditional look and feel associated with the classic instruments of the mid-1920s. One chop and you will know that magic is there too.
An abbreviated fingerboard extension allows you to dig out the fat tone without the accompanying pick clatter on the fretboard. A comfortable radiused ebony fingerboard significantly reduces left hand fatigue. The thin nitro lacquer finish offers superb protection without the tone degradation associated with thicker alternatives. It's attention to the details that sets these mandolins apart from the rest.
