The Loar released their first x-braced A-model mandolin, hand-carved at The Loar Hand Carved Workshop, the birthplace of the LM-400, 600 and 700 mandolins.
The Loar’s new hand carved A-model mandolin (LM-300-VS) was developed using classic design techniques, according to the company. It features hand-shaped x-bracing and stripped down appointments.
The Loar LM-300 mandolin is assembled with a solid carved spruce top and solid maple back and sides. The maple neck has a rounded v-profile. For players who prefer a more streamlined look, the LM-300 has no purfling, just a single layer of ivoroid binding. Grover tuners, nickel hardware and a thin polyurethane lacquer finish are designed to "combine to make this professional-quality instrument an amazing value and a first for the professional mandolin market."
Pricing & Availability
The Loar LM-300-VS has a street price of $374.99 and is available now.
