An excellent guitar.
David Chamberlain, 18.12.2017
I bought this to replace my Godin 5th Avenue which has been my regular go-to instrument for playing acoustic rhythm guitar with big bands for the last half-decade or so. The Godin guitar is a very good instrument and has a very punchy sound with plenty of bark. I would say that the Loar, which I have now used a handful of times in similar situations, is a noticeable step up. It has a fuller, rounder tone and will perform well in a wider range of situations including solo guitar and small guitar combos. Whereas with the Godin I found myself hitting it as hard as I good all the time the Loar has a wider dynamic range and benefits from being played softer at times. I would recommend this guitar to anyone who is looking to play unamplified jazz, especially with a big band.

Great sounding guitar
OMangas, 18.03.2018
Overall very happy with the guitar. There were some minor imperfections, nothing that bothers me, needed to be cleaned up and there was a small dent on the head. The sound is awesome rich and loud.

Günstige vollmassive Archtop mit geschnitzter Decke und Boden
Johannes099, 11.03.2012
Die Gitarre hat einen lauten und durchsetzungskräftigen Klang. Sie eignet sich sehr gut für Plektrumspiel und Fingerstyle, bluesiges und jazziges, wenn man ihren leicht topfig-grellen Klang mag.

Man hört ganz eindeutig, dass es sich vorliegend um eine vollmassive Archtop mit geschnitzter Decke und Boden handelt, bei der die Wöllbungen nicht nur in Form gepresst worden sind. Die Hölzer sind schön, wenngleich die Decke meines Instruments ein klar sichtbares Astloch aufweist und das Griffbrett leicht überpinselt worden ist, um optische Unebenmäßigkeiten zu kaschieren. Hier hat man wohl an den verwendeten Materialien gespart, was aber angesichts des Preises nicht verwunderlich ist.

Die Werkseinstellung war leider zunächst mit einer sehr hohen Saitenlage miserabel. Daher habe ich die Gitarre zur Einstellung zu einem Gitarrenbauer gebracht. Der monierte zunächst, dass der Hals der Gitarre nicht richtig eingebaut worden sei.

Und in der Tat: Vergleiche ich das Instrument mit meinen anderen Archtops, so ist sie die Einzige, bei der der Winkel zwischen Hals und Korpus so gestaltet ist, dass das Griffbrett in Richtung Korpus weist, während es sonst üblich ist, dass bei Archtops der Hals eher so eingebaut ist, dass das Griffbrett von der Kopfplatte bis zum anderen Ende des Halses vom Korpus wegführt.

Letzteres hat den Vorteil, dass man mittels des höhenverstellbaren Stegs die Saitenlage nach unten besser nachjustieren kann. Der Gitarrenbauer musste daher aufgrund des ungünstigen Neigungswinkels des Halses den Steg nachbearbeiten, was 40 € kostete. Ein nachträglicher Aus- und korrekter Einbau des Halses hätte dagegen fast so viel wie die Gitarre gekostet. Jetzt ist die Saitenlage optimal und die Gitarre spielt sich sehr konfortabel. Sollte allerdings der Hals im Laufe der Jahre aufgrund des hohen Saitenzugs nachgeben, so befürchte ich, dass aufgrund der nachteiligen Konstruktion für eine weitere Korrektur kaum noch Luft ist. Momentan passt aber alles und ich spielte die Loar bislang sehr gerne.

Seit ich mir allerdings ein vollmassive akustische Archtop mit geschnitzter Decke und geschnitztem Boden aus amerikanischer Fertigung gekauft habe, musste ich jedoch nunmehr mein zunächst überwiegend positives Bild von der Loar nach unten korrigieren: Wenngleich der Vergleich vielleicht etwas unfair ist, weil die amerikanische Archtop ein Vielfaches der Loar gekostet hat, musste ich einfach feststellen, dass die teurere Gitarre sowohl von der Verarbeitung, der Auswahl der Hölzer und des Klanges her betrachtet eine ganz andere Kategorie darstellt. Man darf also keinesfalls von der Loar erwarten, dass man mit ihr ein Instrument erwirbt, dass auch nur im Ansatz mit einer hochpreisigen Archtop vergleichbar ist.

évaluation guitare
Gabriel588, 26.11.2012
Instrument reçu très rapidement. Elle est livrée avec une housse rigide de bonne facture et montée avec un jeu de cordes d'Addario. J'ai vraiment été surpris par le volume sonore de cette guitare qui est pour le moins élevé, sa sonorité très typée est beaucoup moins métallique que celle d'une guitare folk. Son action est correcte et jouer avec est aisé, attention toutefois à son profil de manche en V qui peut surprendre. La finition est très bonne mis à part la zone de la table recouverte par la touche qui reste malheuresement dépourvu de peinture et de verni ainsi que les ouïes qui paraissent un peu "brutes". C'est un instrument entièrement massif qui va probablement se bonifier avec le temps. Excellent rapport qualité/prix.
