Authentic mandolin "chop" is recognizable from the first strum, and can only be found in an instrument with a true, hand-carved Spruce top. Loar has hand-carved the tops of the LM-310F to provide that real 1920s sound, but with enough vibration to still cut through in today's ensemble playing.
The thin V profile of the maple neck fits comfortably in the player's hand and the removal of the fretboard extension beyond the 20th fret allows for easy strumming without getting hung up on the extended upper frets.
Combine the graceful curves of an authentic F-style body and a graduated solid spruce carved top, and you've got an instrument that not only sounds great out of the box but also one you can hand down to the next generation of players.
- Hand-Carved Solid Spruce Top

Honey Creek mandolins feature hand-carved spruce tops for authentic 1920's sound. The F-style is a classic favorite for players who prefer the traditional mandolin scroll.
