These are brand new LM-520 Blems. A Blem still comes with the factory warranty and is in new condition with the exception of minor cosmetic flaws.
We have a limited number of these.
The new hand-carved LM-520 F-model mandolin is our response to players’ requests for a value-priced mandolin with more stripped down appointments yet a similar sound to our best-selling Loar LM-600 and LM-400 mandolins.
The new 520 is carefully assembled in the same hand-carved workshop that gave birth to the LM-400 and 700, and have similar hand-carved, fully graduated spruce tops. The solid maple back of each instrument is also hand carved, and the solid maple sides complete the package. The maple neck has a comfortable rounded “V” profile finished with a rosewood fretboard. The compensated adjustable ebony bridge and high-quality vintage-style Grover tuning machines ensure that these mandolins have great intonation and stay in tune no matter how hard they are played.
Perfect for players who want a high-quality, great-sounding hand-carved mandolin but don’t need all of the bells and whistles, these minimally appointed instruments deliver the high-end tone, chop, and projection the music community has come to expect from The Loar.
