OVERVIEW

Beautifully crafted F-style with plenty of projection.

Authentic mandolin "chop" is recognizable from the first strum, and can only be found in an instrument with a true, hand-carved spruce top. The Loar hand-carved the tops of the LM-310F to provide that real 1920's sound, but with enough vibration to still cut through in today's ensemble playing.

The thin "V" profile of the maple neck fits comfortably in the player's hand and our removal of the fretboard extension beyond the 20th fret allows for easy strumming without getting hung up on the extended upper frets.

Combine the graceful curves of an authentic F-style body and D'Addario strings, and you've got an instrument that not only sounds great out of the box but will be handed down to the next generation when the time comes.

Case sold separately.

      Comments about The Loar LM-310F Hand-Carved F-Style Mandolin:

      in terms of **playability, as with all mandolins coming from a big box store, it WILL need a good setup and new set of strings. add in the MF hardshell "F" case and yer good to go. the carved spruce top will take a bit of time to "open up" and gain a bit more volume, resonance and smooth treble tone. bottom line is that as a first mandolin, this is one to get. it will offer tone and playability with lowered string action (get the setup!). if mandolin is an instrument for you to pursue, this one will become a good back or one to electrify for gigging while you up the ante for another mando at 5 to 10 times this one's price tag.
