About This Listing

The Loar - LM-520 Hand Carved F-Style Mandolin w\Gig Bag

List Price: $799.99

OVERVIEW

No frills, just a hand-carved, fully graduated spruce top and a hand-carved maple back for optimal tone.

The hand-carved LM-520 F-model mandolin is the response to players' requests for a value priced mandolin with more stripped down appointments yet a similar sound to the best-selling Loar LM-600 mandolin.

The 520 is carefully assembled in the same hand-carved workshop that gave birth to the LM-400 and LM-700, and have similar hand-carved, fully graduated spruce tops. The solid maple back and sides of each instrument is also hand carved for unmatched quality of construction.  The maple neck has a comfortable rounded V profile finished with a rosewood fret board. 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, and projection the music community has come to expect from The Loar.
