Subject: RE: Blueridge guitars - best sellers
I just acquired the best guitar I've ever owned and it sounds better than any I've played in stores. It's a Loar LH200 and despite its laminated body and small size is a blues monster, modeled after the inexpensive early 1930s Gibsons. It looks as beautiful as it sounds, with a rich, glossy, tobacco burst finish. I think it's the least expensive guitar in the Loar line, listing at $699 and going for around $500. Loars are made by the same company whch manufactures Recording Kings (before buying it I tried a Recording King dreadnought which sounded awfully good but was just too big for comfort--and the Loar sounds better anyway).
