Overview

The LO-215 is a unique flat top that gives players the chance to enjoy everything great about a small body instrument, but still benefit from the extra volume of a longer scale. The LO-215 starts with a solid Sitka spruce top on a classic 0-style body. The dreadnought scale length means more punch and projection than you'd expect from a small-body guitar.

The Sitka spruce combines with the flamed maple back and sides for a bright, sweet tone that's great for any style of music. The 1-11/16" bone nut is comfortable for either fingerpicking or strumming, and the vintage-style Golden Age tuning machines keep the 215 in tune through extended playing. The ivory body binding gives the LO-215 a refined, classic look that complements the vintage sunburst finish.

Case sold separately.

Comments about The Loar 215 O-Style Small Body Acoustic Guitar:

I was very biased towards low price Chinese stuff, but this time I had to change my mind. The guitar sounds well, warm tone and bluesy. It's perfect for fingerpicking. You need a luthier to work on the bridge to adjust the action (it's a bit high, I prefer it lower) but, apart from this, it's a good instrument. You can take it with you wherever you go without worring about damagings or scratches or whatever can happen to a guitar on the road. It's cheap but tough and it's worth!
