Players will immediately respond to the classic chop only a quality mandolin can deliver. The Loar hand-carved the spruce tops to optimize each instrument's individual character, and the thin V profile of the maple neck fits comfortably in the player's hand. Our removal of the fretboard extension beyond the 20th fret allows for easy strumming without the classic problem of getting hung up on the extended upper frets.
