Over time, many people asked us for a 14 fret small body guitar. Inspired by some of the best sounding acoustic guitars ever made - the pre-World War II Gibson L series flat tops - we have created the LH 14. We always were in awe of the beautiful sound created by these old Gibsons whenever we heard one. When we looked inside of them, we found their construction very similar, in fact in many ways identical (like brace shape), to Lame Horse guitars. Therefore, we set out to capture that classic sound ,and add a few Lame Horse updates - such as access panels, adjustable neck action, multi-ply necks and sides. The result is a guitar we are very proud of - the LH 14.
The LH 14 was designed to be an all around instrument that performed well being played finger style, strummed, or flat picked. Attached is a beautiful song written and recorded by Dr. Sam Shube on his cocobolo LH 14, which was originally made for and sold through our great dealer, The Guitar Sanctuary, in McKInney, Texas. Please do yourself a favor, and give it a listen.
