These are brand new LM-520 Blems. A Blem still comes with the lifetime warranty and is in new condition with the exception of minor cosmetic flaws.

We have 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. 




An LM-520 setup in the Folkmusician Shop is the hands down best F-style available at this price point.

 

 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 insure 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.
