Overview

Designed, assembled, and hot-rodded in Southern California, the LE924 electric guitar has pro-level features for the new breed of guitar hero. The offset double-cutaway, Louisiana swamp ash body, one-piece maple neck, flat-radius fretboard, and high-output DiMarzio pickups make this Laguna guitar ultra-responsive and a pleasure to play. The Laguna double-locking trem provides the tuning stability needed for aggressive whammy bar action. The AAA maple top with "Awesome Orange" finish caps off the distinctive look of an axe for a discerning player. Case sold separately.

'What can I say, it's pretty much everything I could ask for in a guitar. "-Greg Howe (solo artist; hard rock, shred, jazz-fusion virtuoso; and touring guitarist with Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake)



LAGUNA GUITARS "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.

First let me say that I was not even thinking about buying this guitar when I bought it. I was getting ready to order a custom built guitar from Carvin. Went into Guitar center the other day just to look around and found the laguna le924 sitting next to some amp. I pluged in,played and was on my way to the cash register within three minutes of having picked up the 924. The action is the lowest I've ever seen on a guitar in Guitar center (about 1/16" off the fretboard at the 12th fret). The sound is killer! Heavy chord chunk rythms, flip a switch then into strat type tones,flip the switch again and get deep warm jazzy tones Etc. Once I got the 924 home I did have to tighten the volume,tone knobs and output jack because they were VERY loose and set up the "floyd" which works fantastic! nice and smooth. I've been playing for almost 20 years and have to say the this one of the nicest guitars I have played in a long time. Never thought about buying it,totaly glad I did!

Not for me
I sent this back because I focus mainly on recording and getting good organic sounds. I thought I was going to have the ability to get some full / funky and smooth solo sounds with this guitar.
I found this guitar to produce basically the same type of sound ALL the time. Aggressive. I was not able to reproduce noticeable subtle nuances. Play hard play soft the recorded signal seems to be the same. Aggressive. With that said, if you want to rock hard all the time then this guitar might be for you.
Build seems very good other than I believe I might have received one that the neck was not completely dressed. The edges of frets hung over the side of the neck and this was noticeable when playing.
This guitar does not come with a case and that is unfortunate because it seems that "If had received a pristine one" It would warrant one because I think they are on to something with the design.

      Comments about Laguna LE924 Electric Guitar:

      i loved this guitar (and harder to find) i purchased the guitar a few months ago, i only wish that my way of playing fit this guitar, the guitar is awesome, but is was little to heavy for me to stand there very long, i still use it almost every day sitting down, i know that this guitar is above all the other in this price range, right out of the box this guitar is ready to play after you tune it of course, the color alone is fantastic, so buy this guitar if you can find one right now, you will love it and you will be glad you did

        Comments about Laguna LE924 Electric Guitar:

        I own the LE300 and LE400 and have always wanted the LE924 but couldn't afford one and did not want to buy one that was damaged. When they went on sale I knew it was time to buy and I am not disappointed. The reviews were good and I was worried that the fret edges would be rough but mine arrived with the frets dressed beautifully and the action was setup perfectly right out of the box. Amazingly it was almost in tune. Just some slight adjustment of the tuners and everything was dead on. The craftsmanship, tone and electronics are exceptional. This guitar is definitely a keeper!

            Comments about Laguna LE924 Electric Guitar:

            I purchased an injured LE924 at a discount. I build my own guitars and fix lots of axes, so this was an easy choice for me. The pickups are spectacular (Custom Dimarzio! DUH!) and the wiring and switching is creative and solid. Lots of great tones and versatility in this axe. (What would you expect from Greg Howe) The Floyd is a quality piece as are the tuners and the other electronics. You will struggle to get better sounds out of an "off the shelf" guitar for under a grand.
            The fret ends were not perfect, and there was an ever so slight twist to the neck. I am currently making some adjustments to the neck, (installing stainless frets, making the headstock match the body, etc) but when they are done, I see this being up toward the top of my arsenal.
            The body is solid with a great feel. A really nice piece of swamp ash and lots of little details you would expect from an upper end guitar.
            Other than needing a fret polish and fret ends cleaned up a bit, this guitar is really nice. (O.K. So the headstock has been nick-named the deformed shark,) but the guitar is really a good and fresh new competitor to the quagmire of cookie cutters out there. Much like Maragold is a breath of fresh air to the current state of rock and roll.

            Comments about Laguna LE924 Electric Guitar:

            This guitar is unbelievable. The humbuckers sound great and the single coil split sounds equally crisp. I use each pickup on this guitar, which is a first for me. The only complaint I have is that the Floyd (licensed) doesn't hold tune very well, but maybe that's just mine. I'm experimenting with various things to overcome this.
            The sound is just so good.

            Laguna LE924 is AWESOME

            By Eric Bourassa

            from Fort Worth, TX

            Comments about Laguna LE924 Electric Guitar:

            I love this guitar. I took a risk and just ordered it because it's usually not in stock at the store. The pickups are loud, clear and crisp. I recorded a demo using the Laguna and noticed it really sounded great recorded as well as live. I used the single coil split and well as the hum buckers in our church service and loved it. The tonal range with the Dimarzios is great and I do not plan on changing them out. The neck is fast, smooth, and even. The strings are .010's and they feel like .009's. There is no finish on the neck which also helps, and the neck feels sort of like an Ibanez Wizard neck. Perfect for shredding. The strings were not stretched out when I got the guitar, but once I did that, the floating vibrato system worked great. No issues there. Supposedly there's a difference between "Floyd Rose" and "Floyd Rose Licensed" systems, but I can't tell. This licensed system is great. The overall look of the finish on the guitar is second to none. Love it. The only complaint I have is that the frets were a little dirty and I spent a significant amount of time polishing the frets to feel smooth without any grime. That should have been taken care of at the factory. With that out of the way, I still give the guitar 5 stars and it's worth every penny. Get it.

            Comments about Laguna LE924 Electric Guitar:

            I ordered this guitar online out of curiosity and was not expecting to keep it. I have been in search of a 24 fret maple neck guitar for some time now. Let's just say the first time I sat with guitar I did not get up for about 2 hours. Laguna and Greg nailed this one. The neck feels great and the pickup configuration is awesome. You will love the picking room without the middle pickup. The pickups have great output and are crisp and clear; very low noise. The sustain is great... this guitar sings. Both the tremolo and tuning stability are great. This guitar feels solid in your hands. Unfortunately the guitar is only available on orange, but it grows on you. It looks much better than the pics. This is an outstanding instrument at a great price. Do not hesitate to try this guitar!

The di marzio pick ups are awesome too! Represents all Greg Howe can ask for in a guitar...! Nothing to add to that!! Buy this guitar you won̴��t regret.
