The Loar LM-110 Hand-Carved A-Style Mandolin Vintage Brown

Loar

Authentic mandolin "chop" is recognizable from the first strum, and can only be found in an instrument with a true, hand-carved spruce top. The Loar hand-carved the tops of the LM-110 to provide that real 1920's sound, but with enough vibration to still cut through in today's ensemble playing.

The original and authentic A-model body shape of the LM-110 is quite simply a longstanding favorite. The thin "V" profile of its maple neck fits comfortably in the player's hand and the removal of the fretboard extension beyond the 20th fret allows for easy strumming without getting hung up on the extended upper frets.
