The Loar has introduced a new hand-carved, solid wood mandolin. It’s an A-model designated as the LM-300-VS, their first x-braced A style.
The LM-300 is designed with fewer visual appointments, allowing them to offer it for sale at $374.99. The binding along the fingerboard and sides is a single layer of ivoroid and the headstock has a flowerpot inlay.
Still, they offer a solid carved spruce top, solid maple back and sides, Grover machines and an adjustable truss rod.
