LAGUNA GUITARS LAUNCHES "ONE GUITAR, ONE TREE" REFORESTATION INITIATIVE

Laguna Guitars, reflecting the passionate convictions of musicians, celebrates Earth Day by launching their new "One Guitar, One Tree" reforestation initiative. This plan involves planting one tree for every Laguna guitar made. In addition, Laguna continues to deepen its other practical efforts to reduce waste, recycle and conserve the planet's resources.

For decades, musicians have proudly been socially aware and urged others to take more action, advocacy and awareness in environmental matters. As musicians themselves, those at Laguna have always passionately supported that position, knowing that trees are an economical, long-term solution to many tough environmental problems, including air and water pollution, climate change, wildlife protection, habitat restoration and more. In partnership with AmericanForests.org and their Global Relief campaign, Laguna proudly plants a tree for each Laguna guitar made.

In addition, Laguna's shipping cartons are designed to provide maximum protection with a minimum of material. Their boxes are made from 100% recycled cardboard that is also 100% recyclable, which they naturally encourage wherever possible. Also, in the interests of conservation, they have decided not to print glossy, heavyweight catalogs as millions from various companies end up in landfills every year. Instead, Laguna provides extensive information online at their website (www.playlaguna.com) and a catalog will soon be available as downloadable PDF's, allowing users to print only those pages they want.

As with the design and manufacture of their guitars, Laguna welcomes an open dialogue with musicians and encourages them to share their thoughts and ideas on environmental matters including Laguna's "One Guitar, One Tree" initiative and other earth-friendly plans. All such feedback can be directed to environment@playlaguna.com. Please visit PlayLaguna.com or AmericanForests.org for more information on the "One Guitar, One Tree" initiative and Global Relief campaign.

sick tone and killer looks

By Austin

from Norton,Massachusetts

Comments about Laguna LE422 Electric Guitar:

This guitar is one of the best guitars i have ever played.For one,the AAA flamed maple top is absolutely gorgeous.And it plays great!You can play anything on this guitar.And when I say anything,I mean anything.You can go play a metal gigg and then go play a jazz show after that and will play just as great for each.The pickups are spectacular.The combination of the two alnico custom single coils and humbucker,you get endless tones.It also has a very high quality wilkinson trem.You can dive bomb over and over without going out of tune.I guess the locking tuners have something to do with that to.It has a five way pickup switch,one volume knob and one tone knob.I've had my eye on this guitar for a while and I'm saving to buy it as we speak.I recommend this guitar to anyone and for any style.Do yourself a favor and save up a buck fifty and BUY THIS LAGUNA!

Very Pleasant Surprise

By super steve

from Clovertucky, IN

Comments about Laguna LE422 Electric Guitar:

I have had this guitar for about a year now. I still play it often over several other quality instruments. I have found that the tonal range while similar to strat is unique, useful, and versital. All the hardware is of good quality, not the very best, and does not require replacement. The sustain is very good for a tremelo equiped guitar. At this price point you simply can't find a better value.

Comments about Laguna LE422 Electric Guitar:

Fun and easy to play with a good sound. Love the blazin' orange finish too! Owned this guitar for a couple of years. Bought on a wim at a Guitar Center sale. Have other guitars (Gibson, Fender, and Ibanez) and still like to break this out and jam.

Excellent

By me

from colorado springs, co

Comments about Laguna LE422 Electric Guitar:

For the price, I can't think of a better guitar. It is perfect for beginner to pro, has great sound and sustain, is easy and fast to play, and is extremely well made. The bridge is slightly problematic - it rises with use. Other than that, it is nearly perfect. Setup is easy, and the stock pickups are amazingly good.

What a delightful surprise

By alvarocan

from Vancouver, BC

Comments about Laguna LE422 Electric Guitar:

Was looking for a new guitar that would give me a good and crunchy metal sound, but one that would also allow me to play some cleaner tunes. I am an experienced guitar player weaning myself off of metal and experimenting with other genres, but I wanted something I could go back to thrash with whenever I wanted. This guitar fit the bill perfectly.The value is unbeatable. Finish is absolutely gorgeous, and the option for coiltapping the bridge humbucker sealed the deal. Knobs and tuning machines are brushed metal, resulting in a beautiful and smooth matte finish. Bridge and string-through design A+.Previous to purchasing this guitar in my local music store, I had never heard of the brand Laguna before, but the guitar guys told me to give it a try and I'm glad I did. It is an amazing instrument packed with features usually found in higher model guitars, looks and feels beautiful (especially the neck-quite fast!), and sounds perfect--all for a reasonable price. TOTALLY recommended for anyone who needs some pretty cool features on a reasonable budget.(Just make sure to get them to set up the neck for you before taking it home--there was some string buzz on mine on certain frets that was fixed in a jiffy by the helpful tech guy.)

Strings

By GNM

Comments about Laguna LE422 Electric Guitar:

If you buy this guitar, you've gotta be prepared to buy a lot of strings. I usually snap about one or two every other week. Other then that it's great, I got it at a good price.

Amazing Guitar, even compared to an expensive Strat etc!

By Laguna Man

from Parker, CO

Comments about Laguna LE422 Electric Guitar:

Update 10-8-09.. Bought this guitar last year (11-08) for a xmas present to myself. Like the other reviewers, I didn't know the brand Laguna, and was hesitant. But it felt right, looked beautiful, quality was exceptional, and the sound,,,,, well, I tried everything in the store, Strat's, Les Paul's, etc at 5 times the price, and I kept coming back to the "unknown". I went with my gut instinct and bought it on the spot. (rare for me). After playing it for almost a year, it's still my favorite! I've let band members play it, with 30 plus years exp.), and they are blown away, they call me the "Laguna Man". Exceptional is all I can say. I flat out love it, smooth neck, easy playability, incredible sound, top quality workmanship and the best of materials in wood. This is a SOLID guitar, and I would recommend it to anyone. P.S. mine stays in tune for weeks, I've never had a guitar that has done that,,,, ever. This thing ROCKS. Period!

Pretty good buy! I like it!

By LaGunaGeek

from Da Nort Wudz

Comments about Laguna LE422 Electric Guitar:

As noted in other reviews the HBT finsih is awesome... When mine was delivered it suffered from string rattle and the intonation was off on 3 strings. After a few minutes with the #4 allen key and another few minutes with a phillips everything was ship shape. For those who don't know how to make these adjustments Laguna has a pretty good manual on their PLAYLAGUNA.COM site, download the PDF and learn something! Cool!

Great guitar for a low price

By KOALAFUZZ

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Laguna LE422 Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar mainly because of the appearance and the cheap price, but it was much better than i thought it would be. The whammy bar works great, but I found that to be a little bit of a problem. Using it untuned the extremely easily for the first few months of ownership, but it doesn't make much of a difference now. It may have been the amps I used, but this guitar sometimes sounds a little bit synthesized, which fits my style of music, but it may not be for everyone. I say BUY IT.
