As a survivor of a traumatic brain injury, much a gift will help me re-wire my brain. Learning now to handle & play a good instrument would be much better then my cognitive therapy which still goes on.

You know, if every member pitched in $10+, we could raffle off a real Loar....just saying.

It's nice to see that this is open to everyone regardless of location. I hate it when giveaways are restricted to the lower 48.

I've entered so many chances to win goodies, and haven't, you would think I would be discourage. Never. The Loar is mine. Every other entrant is wasting their time.:)

This mando would look great next to my other cherished players.

That's a nice looking instrument for the price. There've been some really great sub-$1,000 mandolins popping up lately.

Wow!! What a beauty she is! I didn't realize you guys did giveaways! So awesome... if I won her she'd be my second mando ever! I just started learning this past year and I'm hooked - been a musician for ages but I think I've found the instrument I'm most passionate about now… 16 years into it! :)

I've been a keyboard player for 22 years, and have been learning the Mandolin for the last 2. This website has been very helpful in finding and learning songs that have enabled me to learn the instrument and become a little bit better

If by chance I would win this beauty I would let my students play it while they are taking lessons and surely some of them would purchase one of The Loar mandolins when they feel like they are "accomplished mandolin pickers"

I wonder if they will look favourably on players stuck in darkest Africa who have to ride on camelback for three days to get to the dhows to take me to the airport to get on the plane to collect the prize...might as well buy one...:)) I'll have a go anyway...

We'll only ship as far as planes will deliver. We stop at camels.
