Important Individuals in the History Of The Mandolin #4: Lloyd Loar



This is the man behind the famous Gibson "Lloyd Loar" mandolins. Brought to public attention by Mr. Bill Monroe playing one for most of his career. A Lloyd Loar now goes for approximately $250,000.00 US. A longer and more in depth post on this should be up over at Greg Vandy's blog American Standard Time soon.
