The Loar LM-500-VS F-Style Mandolin - Flower Pot Inlay

Product Description

Solid carved spruce top, solid maple back and sides and Flower Pot Inlay

The Loar LM-500-VS has been carefully crafted with a hand-carved solid spruce top and hand-carved figured maple back and sides.
The LM-500’s fretboard extension has also been scooped, allowing players to position the pick closer to the neck joint, so they can find the mandolin’s “sweet spot” without fear of the pick hitting against the higher frets.

The LM-500’s aesthetics are incredible with the Gibson Inspired Flower Pot inlay. This is a rare feature and these were only made for a year, I believe, before Gibson sent the cease and desist. A one-piece figured maple neck, bound ebony fretboard, Grover tuning machines and an ebony bridge round out the list of impressive features on this beautiful mandolin.
