The LH-301T features a single P-90 pickup and is only 1 1/2" thick.

Hayward, CA (April 4, 2014) -- Building the LH-301T was an easy decision for The Loar's workshop after successes with numerous vintage-style archtop and small-body models. "There's something about an electric guitar with resonant chambers; having a fully hollow soundbox really creates a sound that can't be duplicated by any other means," says Travis Atz, the company's Director of Product Development, "After seeing today's popular artists playing hard-to-find vintage versions of this same type of guitar, we knew we had to build something with the same sound and vibe."

The LH-301T is a fully hollow, extremely lively electric archtop with a 1-1/2” body depth and 16” lower bout.

Thanks to the 1-11/16” nut width and 24-3/4” scale, electric players will feel comfortable from the first note. The Loar's single P-90 pickup covers a broad range of tones, from clean and jazzy to crunchy and overdriven.

The maple top, back and sides, and comfortable c-shape mahogany neck provide the ideal foundation for a great-sounding guitar that turns heads with tons of vintage vibe.

From smoother acoustic tones to aggressive power chords, the LH-301T delivers style, elegance and power for players who want true vintage inspiration.

The LH-301T is available in Vintage Sunburst finish and has a street price of $499.99. It comes with The Loar's industry-leading lifetime warranty.

The Italian maestro talks about the spiritual inspiration he draws from his Basque roots, as well as channeling his endless guitar-tinkering passions into his latest musical project, Buñuel.

Italian guitarist and sonic adventurer Xabier Iriondo has an affinity for the Basque term, metak—which literally means, “pile”—and he often incorporates it into the names of his various projects. His custom-built experimental guitar is the Mahai Metak (or “table pile”). Some of his unconventional musical collaborations also include the term, as in PhonoMetak and PhonoMetak Labs. And Sound Metak was the name of the eclectic shop he ran for about a decade in the early 2000s, which sold everything from boutique guitar pedals to shoes. (Check out his Instagram profile, which, in addition to pictures of his amazing collection of guitars, pedals, and vintage amps, is also a showcase for his impeccable taste in footwear).
