Who would have thought that ..?

Finkelstein, 03.05.2010
To be quite honest and fair: an archtop has been one of my dreams since (almost) two decades. But unfortunately "Außense / a / iter" (like me) usually a problem: the price (.. or - well, inferior quality, which is affordable). A MASSIVE Archtop at this price?

I was, of course, skeptical, even if, apart from Loar himself, Paul Mehling praises the 600 series in high tones (listen to: youtube.com/watch?v=gmG_PS61u14).

What I did not want was the "a-piece mahogany neck with vintage" V "profile" description of Loar for the neck of the LH-600. Pampered by Martin Seeliger's "new profile neck" (or "so" - that was 15 years ago), I was already worried about a lumpy, triangular log mahogany scrubbing .. but far from: a dream!

The playability really leaves nothing to be desired. A comfortable strings for the fingerpicker (even if the Loar acoustically certainly with the plectrum a fuller, penetrating sound develops) the neck .. just "wow". ..howo: I had sold last Christmas my last Acoustic-Clamp and since then no longer played - and my (short, thick) fingers simply just about it.

The sound - acoustically: who is accustomed to come as a player himself in the enjoyment of his art here is not really happy - as it should be for an archtop also: the Loar radiates the sound forward / into the room - and: that Not tight. The sound is much more balanced than I would have expected from an archtop (which should actually be more in the middle and high range). The Kent Armstrong Mini-Floating Humbucker: to my shame .. - I could not test him yet, since I was still waiting for a spare part for my 25-year-old amp.
(Mounted on a Godin he sounds like this: youtube.com/watch?v=Q0qnpi_z6kY)

The optics - and here I was the most (in the positive) surprised: super-clean processing! The grain (spruce blanket) much more beautiful than on the sales photos to recognize .. That the ceiling is hand-carved (hand-carved): one sees it -by my- in one place (..and you may also - and disturbs the optics Not a little) - a mini-mini-flaw in the paint, which is more than just excused for this otherwise-excellent quality at this price.

Conclusion: I sometimes wonder whether I should not have saved another two months - on an LH-650, of course, just because of the beautiful Riegelahornzargen- und -bodenoptik. But this is once again a purchase, which I do not regret in the least ... and it is now already my heart grown.

Adolpho (soon synonymous then the "Loaretta" set-as soon as I sensible recordings on my Asbach-old-laptop -bebekomme under:
Youtube.com/user/AdolphoFinkelstein)

Ps: special praise and a thousand thanks once again to the team "guitar" (and all the colleagues involved), who took this beautiful piece extra for me, helped me with the purchase decision (between this and a Canadian Mitbestreiter) and for the super-love-understanding patience with me!
