The Loar’s new hand carved, nitrocellulose-finished mandolin (LM-700) 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, these mandolins offer sounds that could only be previously found in instruments that were decades-old.
The Loar LM-700-VS Hand Carved 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.
The tone of this mandolin is on par with instruments costing three times as much! No joke, this tone is warm, expressive, clear, bright and booming all in one! It will sound as good or better than any Weber, Eastman, Kelly, Kentucky that you throw at it.
The Loar LM-700-VS Hand-Carved Mandolin includes a featherweight a deluxe hard case. The LM-700 also comes with lifetime warranty.
