Overview

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.

Comments about The Loar LM-700 F-Model Mandolin:

I am very happy with this purchase this mando has a bark! So much easier and fun to play than my Kentucky A model. A beauty to look at too. Very well made some older reviews online had issues but either I got a good one or the quality control has improved. I'm a novice mando player but now I'm on a mission!

      Comments about The Loar LM-700 F-Model Mandolin:

      I reviewed the first one I bought it was great except for a fat lump at the f hole. Had to sell that one. I recently bought again and sent it back because there was a dime size divot in the sound board.Idk how QC would let that through.The new one is about perfect.
