|Folkmusician is best known for the extensive setup work performed on the new mandolins we sell. Unfortunately, our setup is very labor intensive and adds significantly to the cost. If you have someone to do the setup work, you can save some money and buy the mandolin here:|
You have heard the hype, and this mandolin lives up to it. All solid, hand carved, nitro finish. Just a great mando.
The LM-700 is a tribute to classic design techniques. From the hand-carved, hand graduated AAA spruce top and AAA Flamed Maple back and sides to the abalone/mother-of-pearl headstock inlay, these mandolins were built to represent Golden Age craftsmanship updated for the modern era.
Carved and assembled in the Loar Hand Carved Design Workshop, then hand-rubbed with nitrocellulose lacquer for clean warm tone and powerful projection, these mandolins deliver professional-level sound and playability.
The LM-700 is assembled with a one-piece maple neck and bound ebony fretboard, ebony bridge and vintage-style Gotoh tuners. The bone nut and ebony bridge allow for the singing sustain and sharp “chop” that professional players look for in a high-quality mandolin.
