I highly recommend this guitar for any level of player. I have played for almost 40 years and have owned Gibson and Martin. And while I don't say that this guitar is in the same class as those guitars, it will surprise you how good the sound is and how high the quality is.
The Loar LH - 200 guitar is a nice acoustic but as far as features, it is a basic guitar. Nothing special or unique as far as features BUT the tuners work well and hold the guitar in tune. Pins hold the strings well.
This is actually the second Loar that I had ordered from Musicians Friend. The first came and there was some manufacturing errors on the binding around the 5th through 9 fret area. Also the action was not great. I returned it for another one with no manufacturing defects and the action much better than the last one.
Anyway the second guitar I received was in perfect condition. These guitars are made in China and I amd amazed how high the quality is. The sunburst is awesome and there are no flaws that I can find.
As far as tone and sound go, this is a small bodied guitar and you are not going to get a lot of bass out of something so small. I purchased this for a blues guitar reminiscent of the 20's and 30's and it fits the bill perfectly.
For the amount of money and the quality of the instument and the wonderful tone that it produces, you can't go wrong.
Add to that the outstanding service and the guarantee that Musicians Friend gives and you really can't go wrong.
There's also a small shop area, where the store's luthier, Brad Lehmann, fixed Chris LeFever's Parker P36, a small electric guitar covered with blue synthetic alligator skin.
Certainly you know that Waukesha is known as Guitar Town. It’s the hometown of Les Paul, the internationally know guitarist, songwriter, inventor and pioneer of the solid-body electric guitar. Les was born raised and is now buried in Waukesha. But have you done the tour of the ten large and seventeen small guitar sculptures all over the city? They are all completely different and every one of them a work of art. What a fitting tribute to Waukesha’s favorite son who contributed so much.
this guitar was purchased for an 8 year old interested in learning how to play,its the perfect size for a kid and has a good playing neck and the tone is very good for a small body guitar at its price.
