This hand-carved mandolin is a true masterpiece with unequaled craftsmanship. The The Loar LM-500 F Style Mandolin is hand-assembled in The Loar design studios, ensuring top quality in every piece. The Loar has carefully crafted the LM-500 with a hand-carved solid spruce top and hand-carved figured maple back and sides for a beautiful look and a balanced tone.
The LM-500's fretboard extension has also been scooped, allowing players to position the pick closer to the neck joint, so they can find the mandolin's 'sweet spot' without fear of the pick hitting against the higher frets.
The LM-500's aesthetics have been modernized, including a 'Fleur-de-Lys' style headstock inlay for a more contemporary look. A one-piece figured maple neck, bound ebony fretboard, Grover tuning machines and an ebony bridge round out the list of impressive features on this beautiful mandolin from The Loar.
