The Loar

With exceptionally loud tone, carved body, and vintage design, this a great-sounding acoustic guitar that jazz players and archtop enthusiasts will love.

Modeled after American designs from the early 20th century, The Loar's archtop LH-300 guitar is carved from select, graduated woods for unparalleled acoustic projection.

The Loar Carved Archtop (LH-300-VS) is a replica of the original archtop acoustic guitars from the 1920's. The Loar guitar features a top carved from graduated spruce, and traditional maple back and sides.

The Loar LH-300 guitar also features a vintage tobacco sunburst finish of polyurethane lacquer, a mahogany neck with vintage "V" profile, Grover tuners and a compensated adjustable ebony bridge. Case sold seperately.

I chose this over the Godin 5th Ave

Comments about The Loar LH-300 Archtop Acoustic Guitar:

I got an amazing deal from Music123. I bought it as a B-stock (still have NOT found why it is considered "B stock") For about 9 months I shopped for an archtop guitar. I wanted a purely acoustic archtop with some classic punch. I boiled it down to The Loar LH-300 and the Godin 5th Ave. I liked the Godin's natural finish option and the tailpiece had a nice harp-like look to it. Plus I like that Godin makes their guitars in Canada. The Loar does not give you finish options, but the top is solid wood. I think that translates into a louder guitar... it should age well. The neck has a very slight V shape to it. The design seem to give more thumb grip for chords. Nice. The frets could use some fine sanding along the edges (ouch). And setting up the bridge/intonation take a little time, but what a fun instrument. I have .012-.058 strings on it and it sounds great. I highly recomend.

Beautiful tone and volume

Comments about The Loar LH-300 Archtop Acoustic Guitar:

I'm giving the LH-300 a 9 overall based on its sound quality. I have tried the Godin 5th avenue, Gretsch G100, Epiphone Broadway and others in my home. I own 2 Ibanez hollow body electrics (GB-10 and AF75TDG) and a Gretsch 6186. The Loar has a nicer acoustic tone and louder volume than any of them. Its probably the solid carved spruce top that makes the difference as well as the lack of electronics mounted on the top. The GB-10 sounds pretty fine but not very loud by design. The guitar I got and still own did have some short commings. The frets were a little rough - I polished them. And the bridge did not adjust properly up and down. Once I removed all the strings I was able to free it. The guitar is one of my favorites and I look forward to trying the electric models. I definately recommend trying this one.
