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.
The LM-700 is assembled with an AAA solid hand carved spruce top, AAA 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 headstock is inlaid with a MOP “Flowerpot” headstock design and the guitar is finished with 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.
