The Loar LM-500 Mandolin features a premium solid spruce top, solid highly-flamed maple back and sides, a flamed maple neck, and an ebony fretboard and bridge. With an abalone/mother-of-pearl custom flower pot headstock inlay, this model fulfills every artistic demand.
Vintage white binding borders the entire instrument with an added black and white inlay on the top, back, headstock, fingerboard, and pickguard. The pickguard is the same tortoise-shell plastic as the vintage original, and a reproduction tailpiece with an engraved cover divides the string pressure in the correct manner.
This mandolin also comes with premium Grover tuning machines with pearloid buttons to assure easy, precise tuning. The tone, craftsmanship and features of this marvelous instrument will make your jaw drop.
