The Loar LM-600 Electric Mandolin Second

The Loar


Here is a rare one. This is a factory second version of the LM-600 with a Fishman pickup. There are two major finish flaws. We initially thought that this was a result of a pickup install gone wrong (and it could be), but there is the same type of flaw on the back of the mandolin. Either someone sanded through both areas, or a solvent was dripped onto the mandolin. Aside from these major cometic issues, there is nothing else wrong with the mandolin.

This is a factory 2nd version of the LM-600E.

Item includes:

  • The Loar LM-600E-VS Mandolin
  • Case - Optional
  • Mandolin Setup

    Hand-carved and graduated from solid select tonewoods and featuring a lightweight nitrocellulose finish for incredible projection, The Loar’s outstanding new all-solid mandolin is an accurate replica of the original 1920’s F5-style model.

    The Loar Hand-Carved Mandolin (LM-600-VS) is an instrument you have to hear to believe. The hand-buffed tobacco sunburst finish with nitrocellulose lacquer provides a vintage sheen and an authentic pre-war-style bark that will impress even the most avid vintage purist.

    This professional model also features a solid hand-carved spruce top, solid hand-carved highly-flamed maple back and sides, a one-piece maple neck with rounded ‘V’ profile, bound ebony fretboard and an abalone and mother-of-pearl custom flower pot headstock inlay.
