The Loar LM-700 Mandolin
The Loar’s new hand carved, nitrocellulose-finished mandolin (LM-700) is a tribute to classic design techniques. From the hand-carved, hand graduated AAA spruce top and AAA Flamed Maple back and sides to the abalone/mother-of-pearl headstock inlay, these mandolins were built to represent Golden Age craftsmanship updated for the modern era.
Carved and assembled in the Loar Hand Carved Design Workshop, then hand-rubbed with nitrocellulose lacquer for clean warm tone and powerful projection, these mandolins offer sounds that could only be previously found in instruments that were decades-old.
The Loar Hand Carved mandolin is assembled with a one-piece maple neck and bound ebony fretboard, ebony bridge and vintage-style Gotoh tuners.
The bone nut and ebony bridge allow for the singing sustain and sharp “chop” that professional players look for in a high-quality mandolin.
The Hand-Carved LM-700 Mandolin includes a featherweight case with an embroidered logo.
