The LH-279 begins with a maple top accompanied by select maple back and sides. The mahogany neck has the traditional V-profile familiar to aficionados of classic Golden Age instruments. With a 16" lower bout and a classic 24-3/4" scale, the LH-279 is designed from original Golden Age archtop specs. We've carefully placed our dual P-90 pickups in what we believe are the perfect spots for great tone and versatility. The classic high output and articulate treble response of P-90s are an ideal match to the spruce top and maple back and sides, giving players a wide variety of tonal options for a broad spectrum of musical styles.

With a classic bone nut, TonePros Kluson tuning machines, vintage matte sunburst or gloss black finishes and two great-sounding P-90 pickups, we've built a guitar that will inspire you with vintage vibe.
