Hayward, CA— To celebrate the upcoming holiday season, The Loar is combining efforts with the Mandolin Cafe to give away one of our top-of-the-line hand-carved LM-700-VS mandolins to a lucky visitor to the Mandolin Cafe website.
You can register for a chance to win the LM-700-VS beginning October 23, 2012 on the Mandolin Cafe website. The winner will be chosen at random on Black Friday, November 23. No purchase is necessary to participate and registration is open to all visitors to the site, regardless of location.
In addition to the LM-700-VS mandolin, the winner will receive a hardshell case and two hats from The Loar.
The LM-700-VS is a tribute to classic design techniques. From the hand-carved, hand graduated AAA spruce top and hand-carved Flamed Maple back and sides to the abalone/mother-of-pearl headstock inlay, these mandolins were built to represent Golden Age craftsmanship updated for the modern era.
Carved in The Loar Design Workshop, then hand-rubbed with nitrocellulose lacquer for clean warm tone and powerful projection, these mandolins deliver professional-level sound and playability.
The LM-700-VS is assembled with a one-piece maple neck and bound ebony fretboard, ebony bridge and vintage-style Gotoh tuners. The bone nut and ebony bridge allow for the singing sustain and sharp "chop" that professional players look for in a high-quality mandolin.
