The Loar

The Loar small body 0-style with maple back & sides and a dreadnought scale length.

The LO-215 is a unique flat top that gives players the chance to enjoy everything great about a small body instrument, but still benefit from the extra volume of a longer scale. The LO-215 starts with a solid Sitka spruce top on a classic 0-style body. The dreadnought scale length means more punch and projection than you’d expect from a small-body guitar.

The Sitka spruce combines with the flamed maple back and sides for a bright, sweet tone that’s great for any style of music. The 1-11/16” bone nut is comfortable for either fingerpicking or strumming, and the vintage-style Golden Age tuning machines keep the 215 in tune through extended playing. The ivory body binding gives the LO-215 a refined, classic look that complements the vintage sunburst finish.

Case sold separately.

    Comments about The Loar 215 O-Style Small Body Acoustic Guitar:

    This sucker is loud! You wouldn't expect it from a small body parlor like this. It has a dreadnought length, which adds a richer tone. It is very mid-rangy which is the nature of these guitars. It will cut through the mix, allowing your sound guy to be a happy man. The guitar itself is beautiful. Bone saddle and nut, all wood, which I can't believe for the price. As soon as you hold it, you feel like Robert Johnson. It is so close to the L-1 in tone and look, some have asked me if that is what it is.

    I have to say I was surprised. I have always been a dreadnought player, but this has been the guitar I have gravitated to for practice. I play it every day. I am putting a piezo pickup in it so I can start using it live.

    Comments about The Loar 215 O-Style Small Body Acoustic Guitar:

    This is a fine reproduction of a 1924 Gibson Nick Lucas. The maple is bright and punchy with a lot of clarity. The build techniques, bracing and sound are very reminiscent of my old '36 L OO.
    The neck feels great, kinda chunky but a good grip especially in first position. Well crafted, lovely instrument

      Comments about The Loar 215 O-Style Small Body Acoustic Guitar:

      I was intrigued by these guitars when I saw them on the site, and I have been looking for a less-irreplacable version of my small-bodied Gibson & Kalamazoo flattopsy hour under. This little machine is a jewel, plays great, feels great, looks great, and it gets warmer and more open with every hour of play.
