The Loar's hand-carved, nitrocellulose-finished LH-700 archtop guitar is a product of extensive historic research. Its excellent projection and quick decay make it the professional choice for jazz soloing or accompaniment.

Boutique Features

The LH-700 is assembled with an AAA solid hand-carved and hand-graduated spruce top, solid flamed maple back and sides, and a figured maple neck with a vintage-style skunk stripe. The bone nut and compensated adjustable ebony bridge let the sound of the select tonewoods resonate clearly. The LH-700 is finished with a meticulously inlaid mother-of-pearl Flowerpot headstock design and a hand-buffed nitrocellulose lacquer tobacco sunburst finish to stay true to classic design and style. The LH-700 comes standard with the Golden Age-styled Deluxe Vintage Hardshell archtop case.
