Gretsch Garage Sale

SOLD: 2015 Loar LH-279-VSM - Price Drop


This is a 2015 Loar LH-279-VSM hollow body in good condition. Basically a re-issue of the Gibson ES-125, these don’t appear to be amongst the current Loar offerings. The guitar has 24.75” scale, 3.4” body depth, 16.4” width at the lower bout and a 1.75” width at the nut. The body is all laminate maple and has what we in the Gretsch world would call parallel tone bars on the top. There is no bracing of any type connecting the top and bottom of the guitar.

I replaced the stock control knobs with speed knobs and replaced the stock output jack with a Switchcraft jack. I also had a strap button added to the heel area for easier playability while standing. The original control knobs will be included. There is no case or gig bag, but I will pack the guitar well for shipment.

Asking $375 USD plus actual FedEx shipping cost to your location. More photos available if necessary.


Here's a close up shot. The guitar has been professionally set up for the 11s (D'Addario EXL115W) that are on it.


Here's a photo of the starp button; a clean installation.
