Replaced with new version of LM-500 May 2011.

Item Includes:

  • The Loar LM-500-VS Mandolin

    The Loar Mandolin features a premium solid spruce top, solid highly-flamed maple back and sides, a flamed maple neck, and an ebony fretboard and bridge. With an Abalone/ M.O.P. Florentine-style headstock inlay designed by Greg Rich, this model fulfills every artistic demand. Vintage white binding borders the entire instrument with an added black and white inlay on the top, back, headstock, fingerboard and pickguard. The pickguard is the same tortoise-shell plastic as the vintage original, and a reproduction tailpiece with an engraved cover divides the string pressure in the correct manner. This model also comes with premium Grover tuning machines with pearloid buttons to assure easy, precise tuning.
