The Loar is giving away the LM-500 Golden Age mandolin to celebrate its reissue.
From now until June 19th, visit The Loar Facebook page (www.facebook.com/theloar) to win.
The design elements of the LM-500 reissue pay homage to classic Golden Age styling, but The Loar have updated the LM-500 to reflect the interests and needs of modern players. The original LM-500's pressed top and back have been replaced with a hand-carved solid spruce top and hand-carved figured maple back and sides.
The LM-500's fretboard extension has also been scooped, allowing players to position the pick closer to the neck joint, so they can find the mandolin’s “sweet spot” without fear of the pick hitting against the higher frets, The Loar says.
The LM-500's aesthetics have been renewed, including a new “Fleur-de-Lys” style headstock inlay for a more contemporary look. A one-piece figured maple neck, bound ebony fretboard, Grover tuning machines and an ebony bridge round out the list of features on this mandolin.
