Three Archtop Guitar Models Hillsborough NC

The solid-top versions (LH-300, LH-350) give players affordable access to the classic archtop sound, but without the sacrifice required to get a true vintage model. Made to the same specs as the LH-600 and 650, with the same hand-carved spruce top, we've kept the price low by building them with laminated maple back and sides.

Three Archtop Guitar Models

The Loar Design Workshop is proud to announce the addition of three new products to the successful Loar archtop line of guitars. The highly sought after LH-650 is now being made available in a black nitrocellulose lacquer finish. The Loar is also releasing solid-top versions of both the best-selling LH-600 archtop and the LH-650 archtop cutaway with pickup, giving players more great-sounding options than ever.

The hand-rubbed black nitrocellulose finish gives it a slick understated look, the perfect companion for some suave jazzbox-style playing. The Kent Armstrong floating pickup amplifies the sweet natural tone of the hand-carved spruce top, while the Florentine cutaway allows unrestricted access to the upper frets, making the LH-650-BK stylishly perfect for either soloing or accompaniment.

The solid-top versions (LH-300, LH-350) give players affordable access to the classic archtop sound, but without the sacrifice required to get a true vintage model. Made to the same specs as the LH-600 and 650, with the same hand-carved spruce top, we've kept the price low by building them with laminated maple back and sides. The mahogany neck with vintage V-profile is capped with a bound rosewood fretboard. The compensated ebony bridge keeps these gu...
