Product Description

The hand-carved LM-520 F-model mandolin is our response to players’ requests for a great-sounding, high-value mandolin with low key appointments.
The Loar LM-520 Performer F-Style Mandolin Features

  • Solid Hand-Carved, Fully Graduated Spruce Top
  • Solid Hand-Carved, Fully Graduated Maple Back, Solid Maple sides
  • Maple Neck with Rounded V Profile
  • Scale Length: 13-29/32”
  • Bone Nut, 1-1/8” Width
  • Compensated Adjustable Ebony Bridge
  • Grover Tuning Machines with Pearloid Buttons
  • Vintage Sunburst Gloss Finish
The LM-520 is carefully assembled in the same hand-carved workshop that gave birth to the LM-400 and 700, and has a similar hand-carved, fully graduated spruce top. The solid maple back is also hand-carved, and the solid maple sides complete the all-solid 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 mandolin players have come to expect from The Loar.

Looks great and good quality. Proud to carry it to church and call it mine. Looks like a very costly Mandolin.
