A fun, affordable hand-carved mandolin built to inspire.
The LM-290's top is hand-carved from solid spruce, and the back and sides are hand-carved from solid maple. The flat fretboard extension provides maximum picking clearance so players can feel comfortable going all the way up the classic v-neck. We've added some other impressive features, including Grover reverse-gear tuning machines and a satin tobacco sunburst finish.
Despite its stripped down vibe, the LM-290 retains the essentials of a great sounding mandolin, and the solid hand carved woods really open up under the thin satin finish.
