As a professional jazz guitarist, I felt it time to buy a quality well priced archtop. With hours of research and endless trips to local music stores under my belt to no avail, I finally came across a somewhat unknown, a underdog even, "The Loar". Needless to say I was incredibly impressed with this handcrafted, hand graduated instrument. The materials used and the craftsmanship that has gone in to this guitar is second to nun and this shows in its extremely beautiful warm, round tone, even "fresh out of the box" it sounds like a 2000EUR guitar. I feel like this company realized that wasting time on flourishes and beautiful headstock inlays and overall finishes fall second and are not as important as the quality of the sound, and this is clearly where they spent there time. This guitar resonates and sings giving the player exactly what you give it. Most importantly a guitar like this will only mature and age like a fine wine as time goes by stretching, warping and evolving into a beautiful beast. It is most definitely a players instrument and should be used as such.

Klasse Archtop für den Preis, aber nicht "ready-to-play"!

Eine Archtop mit handgeschnitzter Decke ("hand carved") in dieser Preisklasse zu bekommen ist eigentlich unmöglich, deswegen wollt ichs mal riskieren. Hatte sowohl positives als auch einiges negatives an Rezensionen gelesen(schlechte Verarbeitung bis hin zu unspielbar)..

War zuerst negativ überrascht als ich das Paket öffnete: da war garnix eingestellt, Saiten nicht gespannt, Brücke verrutscht.

Features: ich wusste was ich bekomme, trotzdem hätte ich mir ein tone -poti gewünscht, ist halt sehr "vintage" gehalten: 1 floating Humbucker, 1 volume-poti, das wars.
Verarbeitung.. naja, kommt halt aus China, da sind die f-Löcher dann nicht von innen lackiert, und einen kleinen fast unsichtbaren lackdings hatte ich auch. Die Bünde waren bei mir ok, vielleicht etwas "scharfkantig", Pickguard ist ein bisschen wackelig angebracht..

Klampfe gestimmt... fürchterliche Saitenlage... Sound der ab-Werk Saiten passt absolut nicht zum Instrument!

Tja.. zurückschicken oder behalten? Ich behielt Sie und hab halt erstmal ordentliche Flatwound Saiten mit anständiger Stärke aufgezogen, wie es sich für ne JazzMama gehört, dazu ein wenig an der Brücke eingestellt, etwas runtergeschliffen, den Hals eingestellt(war ein Krampf, die Einstellschraube ist dermaßen gut in einem mies ausgefrästen Loch versteckt das man da echt schwer rankommt, unbedingt n gewinkelten Innensechskant mit Kugelkopf verwenden, ich hab mir zuerst fast die Schraube kauptt gedreht!).

Und nun nach eingespielten Saiten und ein paar Stunden und Tagen des Spielens scheint das Instrument mit seiner massiven Decke zum Leben zu erwachen:
der Sound blüht wunderbar matt, fett und jazzig auf(habe nen akustikverstärker von AER benutzt). Selbst unverstärkt lässt sich das Teil mittlerweile prima spielen, der Sound wird, wie es sein soll, schön nach vorne projiziert und der Klang hat noch etwas leicht knackig, perkussives sodass ich mich glatt wie ein 30er Jahre Swing-Jazzer fühle..
Auch meine Akustikblues Sachen spiele ich mittlerweile nur noch auf der Loar.

Fazit: Wer sich von kleinen Verarbeitungsschwächen und Einstellarbeiten nicht abschrecken lässt, der bekommt hier wunderbar klingendes Intrument zu einem vergleichbar niedrigen Preis, selbst wenn ihr die Arbeiten vom Gitarrenbauer machen lasst, seid Ihr noch unter 1000EUR
Alternativ spart man noch mal mindestens 1500EUR extra auf ne "große G..." ;)
