OVERVIEW

The perfect blend of swinging style and singing sustain.

Based on a classic Florentine cutaway design, The Loar LH-280 offers players classic archtop style in a versatile electric guitar.

With a maple top, maple back and sides and two custom-wound Loar humbuckers, the LH-280 is a perfect jazz-blues-rock machine. The 24-3/4" scale will be familiar to players of vintage electrics, and the 1-3/4" bone nut and tune-o-matic floating bridge give it powerful punch and singing sustain.

Bridging the gap between jazz, rock, and blues, this versatile archtop from The Loar does it all; smooth clean tones alternate with heavy crunch all packed in a classy tuxedo of a guitar. Case sold separately.

    Comments about The Loar LH-280-C Archtop Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    I couldn't be happier owning this guitar. I bought the Vintage Sunburst. Wow!!! Stunning!! The pics do not do this guitar justice. It is absolutely beautiful. I play it through an Orange Crush 35rt on stage. I'm just a rhythm player, it has perfect tone for the music we play,(rock, blues, red dirt). It's also loud enough unplugged to play it acoustically. Although this is the first hollowbody I've owned, I now leave the Les Paul at home collecting dust.
