Default Loar archtops

The #600 and #700 Loars are essentially the same guitar, with cosmetic differences. The #700 is a bit more fancy (bound peghead, gold tuners, etc.) They are both all-solid, hand carved top & back. A few years ago I got lucky and found an all-black finish #600 for $500 bucks. Put a DeArmond repro pickup on it and it's now my favorite instrument, sounds great. Also has a really nice soft 'V' neck profile, and a 1.75 nut width. That guitar and a Fishman Loudbox Mini amp cost me a grand total of $850. Couldn't be happier.
