OVERVIEW

With a hand-carved spruce top and elegant satin brown burst finish this is a step-up that sounds good and looks good too.

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-110 to provide that real 1920's sound, but with enough vibration to still cut through in today's ensemble playing.

The original and authentic A-model body shape of the LM-110 is quite simply a longstanding favorite. The thin "V" profile of its maple neck fits comfortably in the player's hand and the removal of the fretboard extension beyond the 20th fret allows for easy strumming without getting hung up on the extended upper frets.

Case sold separately.

    Comments about The Loar LM-110 Hand-Carved A-Style Mandolin:

    I bought this for my wife. I have an old Rouge mandolin [electric/acoustic] but I wanted a better instrument for her. I like this mandolin really well It came setup well right out of the box although I did immediately change strings, which is to be expected.The sound is much better than my old Rogue and it seems to play easier. She loves it. The mandolin is axactly as advertised. I'd recommend this instrument for a beginner or as a play around the house instrument.

    Comments about The Loar LM-110 Hand-Carved A-Style Mandolin:

    I have been playing guitars for 45 years. I know a good instrument when I play it. This is a good one. I learned how to play chords on a friends mandolin about 15 years ago. I got more serious about mandolin about 5 years ago & after reading the 800 reviews bought a rogue to practice on & improve my playing. I lowered the strings & it became a good instrument to learn on. Now I am & experienced player that can play chords very well & notes as slow or fast as the professionals. I have researched the many mandolins & the reviews of each on Musicians Friend. I bought this one for the price as well as the fact that it has a truss rod. The truss rod on mandolins & guitars will keep the neck from separating from the body of each instrument. It is a metal rod that runs thru the neck & into the body of each instrument. Some of lower priced instruments don't have a truss rod & may be attached with glue only. The neck & body may separate. A friend had this happen to his mandolin. This Loar mandolin only had a couple of reviews. Both positive. It was on sale at 25% off. I took a chance. I am very happy with this purchase. It is well worth the price even if not on sale. Out of the box I needed only to tune it & play it. The strings were tuned down for shipping purpose. I did not need any adjustment to lower the strings. The action was perfect as is. I can play chords & notes easy all the way up to the 12th fret. No buzzing strings anywhere. It looks good, sounds good & very easy to play. I rate it a 5 star and have nothing negative to say about it. I have played a more expensive mandolin & I feel my Loar is equal in every way at a much better price. Buy it .You will not be disappointed.

      Comments about The Loar LM-110 Hand-Carved A-Style Mandolin:

      I think it exceeds the quality of Epiphone and Gretsch mandolins in this same price range, and it doesn't have an ugly pickguard screwed into the body. Good fretwork, would recommend.
