The Loar LH-300 & LH-350
The Loar announced the release of two new archtop guitars with tops hand-carved by luthiers at The Loar Hand Carved Workshop, the birthplace of the LH-600 and 700 guitars.
Based on the LH-600 and LH-650 guitars, and modeled after historic 1920’s designs, both instruments begin with hand-carved solid spruce tops. The maple back and sides are designed to help provide the percussive sound guitarists look for in an archtop. The mahogany neck is finished with a bound rosewood fretboard and the strings lay across a compensated ebony bridge.
With a 1-3/4” nut width and a historic 24-3/4” scale length, these guitars are designed to stay true to their classic design origins. The LH-350 has a Florentine cutaway and a floating humbucker for amplified playing. Both guitars will be offered in a vintage sunburst finish.
The LH-300 has a MAP of $449.99 and the LH-350 will have a MAP of $599.99.
