The Loog guitars, are designed to make it fun to play and make music, they have three strings on them, which makes them very unique compared to a regular guitar, because of this it makes them the absolute ultimate beginners guitar!

The benefits of a 3 string guitar is that it reduces chords to the basic (triad) level, yet have the remaining important parts of the musical notes which make up songs, allowing you to play any song, thus making the learning process quicker and a lot easier!

The Loog is mainly designed for children but any age can play it and learn how to use a guitar. BUT….

The Loog Pro (again designed for children) is a step up from your regular Loogs, it has been improved from a new bridge, pickup, pickguard to all maple neck and comes in both acoustic and electronic versions, but this one is aimed at those who wanted a Loog but aimed towards an older audience.
