OVERVIEW

The Loar's hand-carved and hand-graduated A-model mandolin (LM-300-VS) was developed using classic tried-and-true design techniques. With hand-shaped x-bracing and stripped down appointments, the LM-300 gives players the sound they've come to expect from The Loar at an unprecedented price point.

The Loar LM-300 mandolin is assembled with a solid carved spruce top and solid maple back and sides. The maple neck has a comfortable rounded v-profile to fit in the hand perfectly. For players who prefer a more streamlined look, the LM-300 has a single layer of ivoroid binding. High-quality Grover tuners, nickel hardware and an extremely thin polyurethane lacquer finish all combine to make this professional-quality instrument an amazing value and a first for the professional mandolin market. Case sold separately.

Hand-carved and hand-graduated top and back at an unprecedented price point.

Comments about The Loar LM-300 Hand-Carved A-Model Acoustic Mandolin:

You will not regret getting one of these. The tone is wonderful, the action is great and the playing is easy on the fingers. I have played some mandolins costing nearly twice what the lm 300 cost and they just did not sound as good.

I just love mine. I love it, I love it, I love it!

    Comments about The Loar LM-300 Hand-Carved A-Model Acoustic Mandolin:

    This is my second The Loar. I have a 600 F-Model.
    The best bang for the buck going for any mandolin.
    Unbelievable quality, playability and sound.
