This Loar LM-520 F Style Mando in a Vintage Sunburst finish is a hand-carved, all-solid-wood beauty that just loves to be played. Meticulously crafted in the same workshop as all hand-made The Loar instruments, the attention to detail is obvious from the get go—this has a simple elegance that really delivers on tone. It has a hand-carved, fully graduated Spruce top, solid Maple back, and solid Maple sides that combine to deliver an impressive “chop” and projection.

The Maple neck has a comfortable rounded “V” profile, finished with a Rosewood fretboard, and the compensated adjustable Ebony bridge and high-quality, vintage-style Grover tuning machines ensure great, reliable intonation no matter how hard you play it. This Loar LM-520 F Style Mando is perfect for players who want a high-quality, great-sounding hand-carved mandolin, but don’t need the bling.
