OVERVIEW

Ideal for players who want a high-quality, great-sounding hand-carved mandolin.

The hand-carved LM-520E F-model acoustic-electric mandolin is The Loar's response to players' requests for a great-sounding, high-value mandolin with low-key appointments. The LM-520E is carefully assembled in the same hand-carved workshop that gave birth to the industry-leading LM-700-VS, and has a similar hand-carved, fully graduated spruce top. The solid maple back is also hand-carved, and the solid maple sides complete the all-solid package. The maple neck has a comfortable rounded "V" profile finished with a padauk fretboard. The compensated adjustable ebony bridge and high-quality vintage-style Grover tuning machines insure that these mandolins have great intonation and stay in tune no matter how hard they are played. These minimally appointed instruments deliver the high-end tone, chop and projection mandolin players have come to expect from The Loar. This mandolin comes with a USA-installed Fishman Nashville pickup.
