The Loar LM-520-VS mandolin is a study in elegant, minimalistic design. A hand-carved F-style (Florentine) mandolin, it’s a high-quality and great-sounding instrument at an affordable price. What makes the Loar LM-520-VS an attractive budget mandolin is a lack of gold hardware and inlays. But if it sounds great, most players won't miss the ornamentation.

    This came setup perfectly. I like the tone and quality. I may replace the tailpiece and bridge to improve things a but. But all in all, I like it.

    Great looking mandolin, need to make sure and adjust to your preference. Otherwise, there are some flaws in the tone, bridgework.

    The Mandoline is very nice and well crafted. The bindings and finish are perfect. Sounds excellent. A great accompaniment to my acoustic guitar.
