Loar LH-600 Rocks!
By: Joe from Waukesha, WI, USA
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
It's a beauty to be sure. Very nicely done. Well constructed and beautiful guitar. I got this on the scratch and dent for $150 less and It's great. Minor imperfection was not noticeable and the guitar is very much the beauty and great sounding guitar I've read that it was.
How has it stood up over time?
Recently got it, but seems pretty solid.
Your general opinion of this product.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
It's not heavy at all. The neck feels great. The body width fits comfortably when seated. No sliding down my leg or anything like that. Stays put.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Bright and snappy. But mellow for fingerstyle too. The f-Holes produce as much volume as a flattop round hole, and include some nice-sounding reverb that isn't overpowering.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Stunning. I love the color and the vintage sunburst. The glossy look is what I like and this guitar deliverts on all fronts. The neck is outstanding with the darker brown wood finish on the back that is just beautiful with the wood grain showing. The flamed maple is well done.
How was the action out of the box?
Excellent! I like my action low, and this is the lowest of any acoustic I've ever played. It's a dream to play and sounds great with the round-wound bronze 13s on it.
