The LH-1280 is a professional-grade fully hollow archtop guitar. The Loar's California workshop custom-wires each 1280 by hand. Seymour Duncan Seth Lover humbuckers deliver classic PAF sound, and are combined with CTS pots, Orange Drop capacitor and Switchcraft jack for top-shelf tone delivery. High-end components and careful US setup are the perfect combo for this premium roadworthy instrument.

The Loar workshop has installed a volume kit on each 1280 to help eliminate muddiness when players roll back on the volume knob. To make sure the guitar is stage-ready right out of the case, the fretwork and setup is all done in the US workshop as well.

Make no mistake – this guitar is ready for any musical challenge you can throw at it. The 24-3/4” scale will be familiar to players of vintage electrics, and the 1-3/4” bone nut and TonePros tune-o-matic floating bridge give it powerful punch and singing sustain. Bridging the gap between jazz, rock, and blues, this versatile archtop from The Loar does it all; smooth clean tones alternate with heavy crunch all packed in a classy tuxedo of a guitar.
