The Loar LM-175-VSM Grassroots A-Style MandolinThe Loar
Players will immediately respond to the classic “chop” only a quality mandolin can deliver. We've 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. Our 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.
Grassroots Series mandolins are finished with Grover tuners, D'Addario strings and our unique “Harp” logo headstock decal. Whether for traditional bluegrass or more modern styles, our Grassroots Series delivers the tone, style and vibe today's mandolin players want from their instruments.

What was refurbished on this guitar:
When this mandolin came in from the factory, the authorized refurbisher couldn't find anything wrong with it. No repairs or modifications were made to the mandolin - they simply gave it a set-up and left it alone. It looks and plays like new. Back of the headstock is stamped "used" and original serial # has been replaced with a new one.
