What originated as a Kickstarter® campaign, the Loog guitar has now been put into production, and people around the world are experiencing the benefits of this simple but brilliant idea. The brilliance lies in the reduction of six strings to three so that beginners and experienced players alike can focus on a limited section of the guitar neck. So, why limit the number of strings? Beginners can more easily focus and can actually transition to a six-string guitar without developing any poor habits. Even advanced players will benefit from seeing the patterns that develop from a smaller set of possibilities. As a teacher and music academy director for over 15 years, I truly expect the three-string guitar to revolutionize guitar playing all over the world. Its compact size allows players as young as four, and perhaps even younger, to start learning how to play guitar.

Grosse Pointe Music Academy will stock and sell all models and parts for Loog three-string guitars. We will also provide lessons specifically for the three-string guitar for students aged four and up.
Guitars with fewer than six strings have been created before, so the concept of three strings is not entirely new. What I feel is unique about the Loog three-string guitars is the creators’ commitment to guitar education, with the three-string guitar being the perfect step towards playing the more complex six-string guitar. Another unique feature of the Loog guitar is that when you purchase any of their models, they are unassembled. Not to worry though as they are very easy to put together and all models have interchangeable parts! The Loog guitar also makes an excellent travel instrument. I can’t wait to get mine!
