We've taken the traditional L-00 shaped body style and updated 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 this great-sounding guitar.
Combining solid top, small-body style with a vintage vibe, this guitar will be the perfect new addition to your collection.
