What We Think

This is a great guitar for some good old blues.  The solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides give the tone a great warmth and clarity.  Love the mother of pearl headstock detail and natural finish.  It has a deeper more full tone than I would've expected based on the size and it's light weight so it would be great for traveling!

This is really an incredible value for a beautiful guitar that is fun to play!

Manufacturer's Description from Other

The LO-16 takes the traditional L-00 shaped body style and updates it for today’s players. If you want authentic front porch blues-box sound, you can’t do much better than the LO-16.

The LO-16 begins with a hand-selected solid spruce top. The mahogany back and sides give it the warmth that players have come to know and love in small body instruments. Mother-of-pearl headstock inlay and Grover tuning machines add tons of value to these great-sounding guitars. We’re offering them in traditional natural finish, and also in classic black finish with ivory-colored body binding and a vintage-style white pickguard. The black finish is our nod to historic blues guitars and looks like no other guitar out there.

Combining solid top, small-body style with a vintage vibe, this guitar will be the perfect new addition to your collection.
