The all solid hand-carved LM-520 F-model mandolin is the perfect balance of a great-sounding, high-value mandolin with low key appointments.
The LM-520 is carefully assembled in the same hand-carved workshop that produces the higher end models such as the LM 700, and has a similar hand-carved, fully graduated spruce top. The solid maple back is also hand-carved, and the solid maple sides complete the all-solid package.
Perfect for players who want a high-quality, great-sounding hand-carved mandolin but don’t need all of the bells and whistles. The quality is there (Solid Woods, Tuning Machines, Bridge, Construction, etc...) but the flashiness is subdued. This mandolin fills out its price point nicely giving the player a feel and sound that is of great value. Includes Manufacturer Lifetime Warranty, Free Professional Setup, and Free Shipping.
