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.

I borrowed a Gibson prototype of this guitar a few years ago to play with a Gypsy Jazz band, and was heartbroken to have to give it back, so I was pleased to find an affordable copy.
I would have been happy if it had sounded more-or-less like the original and been reasonably well-made, but this is an absolutely beautiful guitar, a work of art. The finish and the detail are superb, and the sound is so like the original that if you blindfolded me I couldn't tell the difference!
Like the Gibson, it has a huge sound, with piercingly bright, powerful, percussive sounds available at the bridge end of the strings, and a much warmer, more fluid, bubbly tone towards the neck. It comes strung with heavy strings that bring out the full potential of the instrument. Played softly near the neck it has the perfect sound for smooth jazz rhythm, with lots of bass, but it also responds well to being played hard and will give a hard, metallic sound much like the Maccaferri- type gypsy guitars when played near the bridge.
Well done, The Loar, and, of course, Thomann, for the usual excellent service!
