The Loar LM-220 Mandolin Lefty



Left Handed version of the LM-220. 

The Loar’s new hand carved A-model mandolin (LM-220-VS) was developed using classic tried-and-true design techniques.  With hand-shaped x-bracing and stripped down appointments, the LM-220 gives players the sound they’ve come to expect from The Loar at an unprecedented price point. The Loar LM-220 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-220 has 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.
