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 700, and have similar hand-carved, fully graduated spruce tops. The solid maple back of each instrument is also hand carved, and the solid maple sides complete the package. The maple neck has a comfortable rounded V profile finished with a rosewood 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 the music community has come to expect from The Loar. Case sold separately.

Comments about The Loar LM-520 Hand-Carved F-Model Acoustic Mandolin:
The Loar LM-520-VS Mandolin a lovely addition to my instrument collection.Fun to play, excellent instrument extremely affordable price for tone and overall quality this was absolutely worth the money I pay for it,has returned the investment and I've only had it week. Minor finish issues especially around the neck and under the tongue can't really see it when playing and I don't think anyone noticed it nothing that I care about. Guys at guitar Center were extremely lovely nothing but awesome.
