With a maple top, maple back and sides and two custom-wound Loar
humbuckers, the LH-280 is a perfect jazz-blues-rock machine. The
24-3/4” scale will be familiar to players of vintage electrics, and
the 1-3/4” bone nut and tune-o-matic floating bridge give it powerful
punch and singing sustain.
Bridging the gap between jazz, rock, and blues, this versatile archtop
from The Loar does it all; smooth clean tones alternate with heavy
crunch all packed in a classy tuxedo of a guitar
