The Loar releases its first x-braced A-model mandolin, exquisitely hand-carved by the select team of expert luthiers at the Loar Hand Carved Workshop, the birthplace of the best-selling LM-400, 600, and 700 mandolins. The Loar’s new hand carved A-model mandolin (LM-300-VS) was developed using classic tried-and-true design techniques. With hand-shaped x-bracing and stripped down appointments, the LM-300 gives players the sound they’ve come to expect from The Loar at an unprecedented price point.The Loar LM-300 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-300 has no purfling, just 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.More information at www.theloar.com.
