The Loar's new hand carved A model mandolin was developed using classic tried-and-true design techniques. With hand-shaped X-bracing and stripped down appointments, the LM-220 gives players the sound they've come to expect from The Loar at an unprecedented price point.
The Loar LM-220 mandolin is assembled with a solid carved spruce top and solid maple back and sides. The maple neck has a comfortable rounded V-profile to fit in the hand perfectly. For players who prefer a more streamlined look, the LM-220 has a single layer of ivoroid binding. High-quality Grover tuners, nickel hardware and an extremely thin polyurethane lacquer finish all combine to make this professional-quality instrument an amazing value and a first for the professional mandolin market.
