Quite a good quality instrument for the price, that just needs a little tweaking

09.01.2016
I didn't know exactly what i wanted from a budget acoustic archtop, Getting more fluent in jazz genre, i thought i might give this replica of L5 (guitar that started it all) a try.

As soon as i unpacked it i took a strum at random chords and noticed that it was quite loud (as loud as a flat top), and has a more percussive quality to its tone. Rather less "air' and warmth and more clarity and punch. It's ideal for finger picking and solo runs with a pick.

It DOES shine at jazz swing. Hands down best rhythm guitar i ever had, though i use it for pretty much every genre. I might avoid it when strumming pop songs because chords sound more percussive and less warmer than on a flat top.

Woods used on a guitar would easily fit on a more expensive instrument. I would suggest anyone to get a proper set up done and fret dress to get it to sound it's best. Bridge replacement for a lighter piece could also do magic in improving sound. Little extra investment can make this instrument an amazing deal. The only other thing i truly missed is a pickguard, but many players also object to it.

At this price, it's practically the only recommendation for anyone who wants to try an acoustic archtop guitar, that has a true carved top. Guitars with tops pressed into form will not demonstrate sound quality of this kind of instrument as good as The Loar.

LH-300

James E., 14.05.2013
This is a really great, authentic vintage style Archtop guitar. Great sound and projection for Jazz, blues and old time styles. An amazing value guitar for that pre-war American sound.
