PRESS RELEASE: The fully hollow LH-302 and LH-304 thinbody archtops from The Loar deliver vintage style and vintage tone in a classic single cutaway body design. “There’s something about an electric guitar with resonant chambers; having a fully hollow soundbox really creates a sound that can’t be duplicated by any other means,” says Travis Atz, the company’s Director of Product Development. The 302 and 304 are extremely lively single-cutaway archtops with 1-1/2″ body depths and classic 16″ lower bouts. The Florentine cutaway was a classic 1960 design element added to thinbody archtops, allowing greater access to the upper frets. The dual pickup design covers a full range of tones in either bridge or neck positions.
Thanks to the 1-11/16” nut width and 24-3/4” scale, electric players will feel comfortable from the first note. Choose from dual P-90s (302) or dual humbuckers (304) for versatility – from clean and jazzy to crunchy and overdriven.
The maple top, back and sides, and comfortable C-shape mahogany neck provide the ideal foundation for a great-sounding guitars that turns heads with tons of retro style. As players look deeper into history to revive classic designs, the “forgotten vintage” style of these 1960’s-influenced instruments are finding their way to stages everywhere.
