New! The Loar LH-301T Archtop
April 5, 2014
Building the new LH-301T electric archtop 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," says The Loar Director of Product Development, Travis Atz. "Having a fully hollow soundbox really creates a sound that can't be duplicated by any other means. 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 offers a maple top, back and sides; a 1-1/2” body depth and 16” lower bout; a 1-11/16” nut width; a 24-3/4” scale; and a C-shape, mahogany neck. The Loar's single P-90 pickup covers a broad range of tones, from clean and jazzy to crunchy and overdriven.
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.
