The Loar Design Workshop announced the addition of three new products to the Loar archtop line of guitars.

The LH-650 is now being made available in a black nitrocellulose lacquer finish. The Loar is also releasing solid-top versions of both the LH-600 archtop and the LH-650 archtop cutaway with pickup.

The Loar's Archtop Cutaway in black (LH-650-BK) is an option for traditional jazz guitarists who want to make the classic archtop sound heard clearly for ensemble playing. This all-solid guitar features a top that is hand- graduated spruce, and the back and sides are hand-carved from solid maple. The hand-rubbed black nitrocellulose finish is designed to give it a slick understated look, the perfect companion for some suave jazzbox-style playing. The Kent Armstrong floating pickup is designed to amplifythe sweet natural tone of the hand-carved spruce top, while the Florentine cutaway allows unrestricted access to the upper frets.

The solid-top versions (LH-300, LH-350) are designed to give players affordable access to the classic archtop sound, but without the sacrifice required to get a true vintage model.

Pricing
The LH-650-BK comes standard with a Loar logo-embroidered featherweight case and has a MAP of $1087.49. The LH-300 and LH-350 have MAPs of $674.99 and $749.99, respectively. All Loar guitars have our industry-leading limited lifetime warranty.

Available March 2010
