Loar’s LH-600 archtop guitar is a design the company takes pride in, with a classic look derived from early 1900s American guitars. The archtop is a hard-carved affair featuring graduated wood, and now Loar is announcing that the LH-600 is coming with a fresh coat of paint.
The LH-600 from Loar now features a black gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish and a design heralding straight out of the Roaring 20s. The sides and back of the LH-600 are made from solid maple, and the top is made from graduated spruce. The black lacquer finish enables the acoustic guitar a heightened level of acoustic projection. Also featured on the guitar is an adjustable ebony bridge and ebony fretboard, and a one-piece mahogany neck.
Loar’s LH-600 also comes in the vintage sunburst design. Both carry a list price of $1,199.99 and come with a featherweight case. Needless to say, these designs are not for the novice guitarist! However, if you are willing to devote a paycheck to one of these beauties, you can find the official site here. Availability has not yet been determined, aside from “coming soon”.
