The Loar’s new hand carved, nitrocellulose-finished archtop cutaway guitar offers an excellent option for traditional jazz guitarists who want to make the classic archtop sound heard clearly for ensemble playing. The Kent Armstrong floating pickup amplifies the sweet natural tone of the hand-carved spruce top, while the Florentine cutaway allows unrestricted access to the upper frets, making the LH-650 perfect for either soloing or accompaniment.The Loar Hand Carved Archtop Cutaway Guitar is assembled with a solid hand carved spruce top and solid figured maple back, sides and neck. The bone nut and compensated adjustable ebony bridge let the sound of the select tonewoods resonate clearly, and the bound rosewood fretboard is both beautiful and durable. The bound pickguard with a single volume knob adds to the vintage look and feel. The archtop is finished with a meticulously inlaid mother-of-pearl “Fleur-de-Lys” headstock design and a hand-buffed nitrocellulose lacquer tobacco sunburst finish to stay true to classic design and style.The LH-650 comes standard with a Loar logo-embroidered featherweight case.Available in vintage sunburst, natural or black finishes.
