Authentic mandolin “chop” is recognizable from the first strum, and can only be found in an instrument with a true, hand-carved spruce top. We have hand-carved the tops of the lm-310ft to offer that real 1920s sound, but with enough vibration to still cut through in these days’s ensemble playing. The thin “V” profile of the maple neck fits comfortably within the player’s hand and our removal of the fretboard extension beyond the 20 th fret allows for simple strumming without getting hung up at the extended upper frets. Combine the graceful curves of an authentic F-Style body, Grover tuners, and D’Addario strings, and you have got an instrument that not only sounds great out of the box but shall be Handed down to the following generation when the time comes.
