    Up for sale is The Loar Mandolin model LM-520 -vs with case . ( sorry , no jack plate as it's not electrified :p ) $350 + shipping / packing ..see deal below

    Honestly I've barely played it and only learned a few chords to strum and chop . Also included is a strap / capo / xtra set of strings . She was up for sale about a year and a half ago and it's still sitting in the case .

    Unfortunately , I don't do the " Pay-Pal " or " Venmo " thing . A good old fashioned Money Order from the U.S. Post Office , safe and guaranteed money on both parties end . . I've bought and sold many things this way .

    I had one member across the States interested but unfortunately it fell through so that's how I came up with the shipping charge .

    Sooooo.......
    Shipping is $78
    Packing is $15
    Total $93

    *******************
    Mando $350
    Shipping / packing $93
    total would be $443
    *******************


    ****** G-T Moderator price total all included
    $425 :) *****

    Sorry , lower 48 only . PM if interested

    Thanks for looking

    Looks like a good deal to me! I traded a guitar for a mando a few years ago and it hasn't been out of the case for a while either.. now I need to get back to it (just a few chords and licks so far)

    Good luck with the sale!

    Best of luck. Do you require payment before shipment? Money orders are very reliable, for the payee to receive moneg without consequences, which is why it is the preferred method of payment for fraudsters. Not that you are one of course.

    These are nice mandolins for the money, folks. I've got the exact same model, aka "The Performer". Hand carved solid spruce top, maple neck, back and sides, rosewood fretboard. Totally fair price too, especially with the case.

    GLWTS, Rich!

    Sorry to disappoint , but no fraudster here Henry . Yes , payment received then item gets shipped as I'm sure I'm not the first member to do so . Buyer gets my full name , address , phone number , and not only tracking number , but a copy of the receipt in the PM . Actually , in all fairness , all my sales have been shipped from Old Tappan , New Jersey just 2 miles from my home . As my avatar states , I'm in Tappan , New York , simple Google map . And besides , if i weren't an honest person , I would have never been asked to be a moderator now would I ;)

    Beautiful, and a great deal, I think I paid about $630 for the mandolin alone, and the case and strap was another $160. This is a good deal.

    GLWTS, someone is going to get a great deal.

    This is what it is all about, having instruments used making music to make the world a better place.
    There is just something about the happy sound of a mandolin. You put it in the right part at the right time, and the sound goes from good to magic. Thanks for sharing that great experience.
