The Loar's nitrocellulose-finished LM-700 F-model mandolin is a tribute to classic design techniques. From the hand-carved, hand graduated AAA spruce top and AAA flamed maple back and sides to the abalone/mother-of-pearl headstock inlay, these mandolins were built to represent Golden Age craftsmanship updated for the modern era.
Carved and assembled in the Loar Hand Carved Design Workshop, then hand-rubbed with nitrocellulose lacquer for clean warm tone and powerful projection, this mandolin offers sounds that could only be previously found in instruments that were decades-old.
The hand-carved Loar mandolin is assembled with a one-piece maple neck and bound ebony fretboard, ebony bridge and vintage-style Gotoh tuners. The bone nut and ebony bridge allow for the singing sustain and sharp chop that professional players look for in a high-quality mandolin. Includes hardshell case.
