Gearank Recommendation

The Loar LH-200 appeared on our recommended list for Acoustic Guitars in the $300 to $500 price category from January 2018 until August 2019 when it was removed due to a lack of availability.


The Loar LH-200 is a small bodied guitar. The best thing about small bodied guitars is how responsive they are to fingerpicking, making them a great choice for any fingerstyle arrangement (with the exception of classical music).

However, the responsiveness of small bodied guitars does come with a tradeoff. Small bodied guitars generally don’t sound as good when flatpicked because they lack the tonal depth of a dreadnought guitar or larger instrument. If you’re looking for a guitar to handle both flatpicking and fingerpicking equally well (though not as well as a guitar specifically geared towards a style of playing) check out an OM body style.

Another cool feature of the Loar LH-200 is how well it captures that early pre-war blues tone. Most modern guitars are voiced a bit too brightly to really capture that tone, but the LH-200 is the exception to this trend.
