      The Loar

      A professional mandolin with beautiful appointments and hardshell case.

      The Loar's nitrocellulose-finished LM-700 F-model mandolin is a tribute to classic design techniques. From the hand-carved, hand graduated AAA spruce top and AAA flamed maple back and sides to the abalone/mother-of-pearl headstock inlay, these mandolins were built to represent Golden Age craftsmanship updated for the modern era.

      Carved and assembled in the Loar Hand Carved Design Workshop, then hand-rubbed with nitrocellulose lacquer for clean warm tone and powerful projection, this mandolin offers sounds that could only be previously found in instruments that were decades-old.

      The hand-carved Loar mandolin is assembled with a one-piece maple neck and bound ebony fretboard, ebony bridge and vintage-style Gotoh tuners. The bone nut and ebony bridge allow for the singing sustain and sharp chop that professional players look for in a high-quality mandolin. Includes hardshell case.

        Comments about The Loar LM-700 F-Model Mandolin:

        I tradede in my older LM600 for this new LOAR 700. The sound is great; very mature, not like an unbroken-in instrument. Plays well and fast. BUT, the tailpiece was installed off center and is crooked, and the wooden tail pin fell out within an hour, luckily, I had the instrument in hand, not hanging on the strap. Some of the fret ends were high and sharp. For over a grand, I expected more.

        Fantastic Mandolin

        By CaptainMcAwesome

        from Arkansas

        Comments about The Loar LM-700 F-Model Mandolin:

        A fantastic mandolin. Not just for the price. This mandolin will out bark a banjo. It has a distinct Lloyd Loar sound and incredible playability. Perfect bluegrass tone, and not to mention a beautiful finish. Get it, you will not regret it. Is better than a Gibson, trust me. I own both!
