The Loar Performer Vintage Sunburst F-Body Mandolin LM-520-VS
Not too many years ago, a really good mandolin cost well over a thousand dollars, and that was just getting started. Today, The Loar makes excellent mandolins that just about anyone can afford. The boys at Backstage love seeing these hang on the wall, and love talking to our customers about them.
The photos here are of the actual mandolin being shown in this listing. These are NOT stock photos. If they were stock photos, they'd be a lot slicker looking. These are real pictures of one real mandolin.
