The Loar

A vintage-style jazz box with a carved solid top and single P-90.

The LH-309 archtop is the perfect blend of vintage vibe and modern value. The LH-309's top is hand-carved and hand-graduated solid Spruce. The Loar have carefully placed their own P-90 pickup in the perfect spot for optimal tone. The classic high output and articulate treble response of the P-90 is the ideal complement to the spruce top and maple back and sides, excellent for either rhythm or lead playing.

With a 16" lower bout and a classic 24-3/4" scale, the LH-309 is a nod to original Golden Age archtop designs.

Case sold separately.

    Comments about The Loar LH-309 Archtop Guitar:

    Got this guitar for playing shows around at coffeehouses and bars, though i also played at the shanghai beer festival, and it was totally sufficient for that. Really a great, slim guitar with a good sound. I have thought a few times of replacing the pickup - not that it's bad at all, but i definitely feel it doesn't accurately capture the tone of the guitar itself. If I were to record with this guitar, I would use a mic instead of the pickup. That said, I love it.

    Compared to other acoustic guitars I've played, this is by far the best, barring only a 1k$+ Martin a friend of mine has.
