  • Description

    Players will immediately respond to the classic "chop" only a quality mandolin can deliver. The Loar has hand-carved the spruce tops to optimize each instrument's individual character, and the thin "V" profile of the maple neck fits comfortably in the player's hand. The removal of the fretboard extension beyond the 20th fret allows for easy strumming without the classic problem of getting hung up on the extended upper frets.

    The Loar Grassroots Series mandolins are finished with Grover tuners, D'Addario strings and The Loar's unique "Harp" logo headstock decal. Whether for traditional bluegrass or more modern styles, the Grassroots Series delivers the tone, style and vibe today's mandolin players want from their instruments.

    The LM-170 Grassroots Mandolin features a solid hand-carved spruce top, maple back and sides, a maple neck, a rosewood fretboard, a compensated adjustable rosewood bridge, a bone nut, and a traditionally-inspired Vintage Sunburst finish with ivoroid top binding.
