The LH-309 archtop is the perfect blend of vintage vibe and modern value. The LH-309s top is hand-carved and hand-graduated solid Spruce. The Loar have carefully placed their own P-90 pickup in the perfect spot for optimal tone. The classic high output and articulate treble response of the P-90 is the ideal complement to the spruce top and maple back and sides, excellent for either rhythm or lead playing.

With a 16 inch lower bout and a classic 24-3/4 inch scale, the LH-309 is a nod to original Golden Age archtop designs.

The 302 is a fully hollow, extremely lively, single cutaway archtop with a 1-1/2 body depth and classic 16 lower bout. The Florentine cutaway was a classic 1960 design element added to thinbody archtops, allowing greater access to the upper frets. The dual P90 pickup design covers a full range of tones in either bridge or neck positions  from clean and jazzy to bluesy fuzz.

Thanks to the 1 11/16 nut width and 24 3/4 scale, electric players will feel comfortable from the first note. The maple top, back and sides, and comfortable C shape mahogany neck provide the ideal foundation for a great-sounding guitar that turns heads with tons of retro style. As players look deeper into history to revive classic designs, the forgotten vintage style of these 1960s influenced instruments are finding their way to stages everywhere.

From smoother acoustic tones to aggressive power chords, The Loar thinbody archtops deliver style, elegance and power for players who want true vintage inspiration in an impressive package. The LH 302T thinbody archtop with dual P90s is available in vintage sunburst or cherryburst finishes.

With a maple top, maple back and sides and two custom-wound Loar humbuckers, the LH-280 is a perfect jazz-blues-rock machine. The 24-3/4 scale will be familiar to players of vintage electrics, and the 1-3/4 bone nut and 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 guitar
