The folk and traditional instruments constructed during the early part of the 20th century are considered by many to be the finest ever created. For this reason, it's really no wonder why so many luthiers today would look to that Golden Age of mandolin craftsmanship for inspiration, and that's exactly what The Loar does. In fact, The Loar's passion for designing mandolins that combine the beautiful look, feel and sound of '20s and '30s mandolins with modern enhancements has earned them praise from musicians around the world.

Whether you're an experienced player who plans on hitting the festival circuit or if you've recently decided to take up the instrument, The Loar has a mandolin to suit every skill level and budget. For example, if you're looking for an acoustic mandolin that's affordable and easy to play, take a look at the LM-220 Hard-Carved A-Model Acoustic Mandolin. Featuring a sunburst finish, solid carved spruce top, a single layer of ivoroid binding, and a solid maple neck with comfortable rounded V-profile, the LM-220 is an absolute steal for such a high-quality instrument.

While you're at it, be sure to check out the LM-700 F-Model Mandolin. Boasting an array of eye-catching appointments like a hand-carved, hand-graduated AAA spruce top, AAA flamed maple back and sides, vintage-style Gotoh tuners, ebony fretboard, and an abalone/mother-of-pearl headstock inlay, the LM-700 has it all. Simply put, this mandolin is a stunning tribute to classic design techniques, and its rich sustain and sharp chop would satisfy the ears of any folk and traditional music aficionado.

The timeless beauty of a well-made mandolin will never go out of style; and as long as The Loar's team of luthiers continue to hone their skills, musicians from all walks of life can continue to enjoy a mandolin that's built to last through countless amounts of use. So feel free to explore the rest of their catalog, and remember that whatever you go with, the results will be sure to please you.
