The Loar’s LM-310F-BRB F-Style Mandolin has authentic mandolin “chop” in a stripped down aesthetic. The hand carved solid spruce top is tonally superior to any pressed solid mandolin top, The Loar’s reputable build quality is evident in each curve of the body, and the price is in a league of its own for a Carved Top mandolin. When you’re ready to step up to real mandolin tone, get The Loar LM-310F-BRB in your hands.

Hand-Carved Solid Spruce Top
For any arched top instrument, hand carving a bookmatched piece of solid spruce has been the path to best tone for hundreds of years. The Loar has embraced the century of mandolin knowledge and has made real tone a standard spec on every single The Loar mandolin. Carving by hand allows the natural fibers and grain to be preserved, letting the strings’ vibrations travel freely and fully resulting in that real mandolin “chop.”

Distinctive F-Style Body Styling
In the near-100-years since the F-Style body shape was introduced, it has been the mandolin’s standard bearer. The graceful scroll work and peaks and troughs of the top can only come from highly trained craftspeople.

Unbeatable Price With Pro-Grade Specifications
While there are other Carved Top mandolins in the marketplace, none of them can come close to the affordability of the LM-310F-BRB. Whether you’re an improving player looking to step up to a real Carved Top mandolin, or a pro player needing a legitimate “kick around” instrument, The Loar LM-310F-BRB is in a league of its own.

Great mandolin at a great price


Great first mandolin. I was surprised how well it played straight out of the box after simply tuning it up. I've had a few friends try it and all of them were impressed. Time will tell how it will hold up but after a few weeks I have no regrets.





Beautiful instrument.



Nice Mandolin


This is the first mandolin I've owned and attempted to play so I have nothing to compare it to. That being said it is crafted well. It holds tune well (after strings are broken in). The intonation seems good by ear. As sound goes, I have nothing to compare it to but it seems be good for an entry level The Loar. I'm sure if you spend more money you'll get a better sound, but this one isn't bad. I think it would have trouble being heard over other acoustic instruments but that can be remedied with a mic and amp. Overall I feel like this is a good starter mandolin and I am not disappointed in my purchase.

Wonderful instrument


Fun transition instrument for someone who grew up playing violin.

A Very Nice Mandolin


I ordered this mandolin instead of an Ibanez that was back-ordered forever. It was a good move as this is a very nice instrument. It's solid, beautiful and sounds great. I had to do a little set up, but lowering the bridge made it play nicely. Love this!
