About This Listing

The Loar LM-520
Performer Mandolin, F-Style, All Solid Hand Carved

Product Description

The hand-carved LM-520 F-model mandolin is our response to players' requests for a great-sounding, high-value mandolin with low key appointments.

The LM-520 is carefully assembled in the same hand-carved workshop that gave birth to the LM-400 and 700, and has a similar hand-carved, fully graduated spruce top. The solid maple back is also hand-carved, and the solid maple sides complete the all-solid package. The maple neck has a comfortable rounded "V" profile finished with a padauk fretboard. The compensated adjustable ebony bridge and high quality vintage-style Grover tuning machines insure that these mandolins have great intonation and stay in tune no matter how hard they are played.

Perfect for players who want a high-quality, great-sounding hand-carved mandolin but don't need all of the bells and whistles, these minimally appointed instruments deliver the high-end tone, chop and projection mandolin players have come to expect from The Loar. 

Features 

  • Hand-Carved Solid Spruce Top
  • Hand-Carved Solid Maple Back & Sides
  • Maple Neck with Thin ”V” Profile
  • 1-1/8” Nut Width
  • Grover Tuners  

The LM-520 Performer features a hand-carved spruce top with solid maple back and sides for traditional mandolin tone and chop. Perfect for players who want a high-quality, great-sounding hand-carved mandolin but don't need all the bells and whistles.
