More affordable versions of the LH-600 and LH-650 archtops

Hayward, CA (August 29, 2010) — The Loar is announces the release of two new archtop guitars with tops  hand-carved by the team of expert luthiers at The Loar Hand Carved Workshop, the birthplace of the best-selling LH-600 and 700 guitars.


Based on the popular LH-600 and LH-650 guitars, and modeled after historic 1920s designs, the all-new Loar LH-300 (pictured) and 350 set a new standard for quality and price. Both instruments begin with hand-carved solid spruce tops. The maple back and sides help to provide the bright, 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 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.

LH-300 MAP $449.99
LH-350 MAP $599.99
