The Loar’s new outstanding hand carved, nitrocellulose-finished archtop guitar—LH-700—is a product of precision historic research and craftsmanship. The all solid, hand carved bodies are finished with nitrocellulose lacquer to reproduce the classic jazz sounds of Golden Age instruments. With the use of expert traditional building techniques, like the classic parallel bracing, The Loar Hand Carved Archtops are another magnificent achievement. The Loar pays admiration to instruments from the 1920’s and 30’s, an age of outstanding craftsmanship and innovative design. The Loar Company revives this tradition to bring you the best-sounding, most beautifully crafted instruments available.
The Loar Hand Carved Archtop Guitar LH-700 is crafted with an AAA solid hand carved spruce top and AAA flamed maple back, sides and neck. The bone nut and adjustable ebony bridge let the sound of the premium select tonewoods resonate clearly, and the bound ebony fretboard is both beautifully detailed and durable.
The archtop is finished with a meticulously inlaid “Flowerpot” headstock design and a hand-buffed nitrocellulose lacquer tobacco sunburst finish to stay true to classic design, style and timeless beauty.
However, the LH-700 will only be built in very limited quantities. The guitar comes with the Golden Age-styled Deluxe Vintage Hardshell archtop case. For a complete list of products available from The Loar, visit theloar.com.
