Comments about The Loar LH-300 Archtop Acoustic Guitar:
I sold my ancient L-7 a few years ago because it wasn't a very good example of one- tinny and quiet. I actually need guitars of all sorts, and I needed an acoustic archtop for jazz and western swing, so I was glad to see some working-man's guitars come out over the past few years. I love the old classics, but honestly, you don't drag $3000 guitars around when it's 105 degrees outside, or 20 below either, which is what our Nevada weather is like.
If you appreciate acoustic archtops for what they are intended in the first place, all I can say is that I like this guitar much better than the ancient L-7; more volume and better low-end bark, affordable, practical.
i accidentally ordered two- made a bid on Ebay for one, thought I, lost but won anyway after I'd already ordered the new one. I had a hard time figuring out which one to part with because they sounded different, but both very good. The (new) one I kept was a bit stronger in the mids and recorded really well.
I considered the LH600, which was warmer and really delightful, but laminated backs and sides are more sturdy for weather and travel extremes, so I bought the 300. Very happy.
I've read bad reviews about the finish, etc, but frankly I'm a working guy and I lovingly trash everything I play eventually, so I generally ignore imperfections on otherwise excellent, playable guitars that suit the job.
I highly recommend the LH300.
