The Loar introduces the LO-215 and 216, two small body single-0 guitars with a 25.4” dreadnought scale length.

The LO-215 and 216 from The Loar are flat top offerings, small body instruments described as benefitting 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 that the strings have greater excursion, according to the manufacturer, supposedly resulting in more punch and projection than you’d expect from a small-body guitar. The Sitka spruce combines with the flamed maple back and sides. The 1-11/16” bone nut is suited for either fingerpicking or strumming, and the vintage-style Golden Age tuning machines are designed to keep the 215 in tune through extended playing sessions. The model includes ivory body binding and bound headstock, and comes in a vintage sunburst finish and firestripe pickguard.

 

The LO-216 guitar has all of the same features, but with mahogany back and sides. The mahogany models are finished in either natural or classic black. The pickguard is vintage firestripe.

 

Pricing & Availability:

The LO-215 with maple back and sides has a street price of $374.99, while the mahogany LO-216 has a street price of $359.99. All models come with The Loar’s lifetime warranty.
