Why We Made This
We offer what we (and others) think is the best guitar for children. But it is true that there are many other options, some costing much less than a Loog. So why Loog? Most guitars for kids are simply cheap, scaled-down copies of a standard guitar. And because they have six strings anyway, the neck is still too wide for a child to play comfortably - let alone easily. Plus, cheap guitars tend to be cheaply made. It makes sense to avoid spending a fortune on a beginner's instrument, but by going with really bad quality, chances are your kid won’t feel engaged enough to play.
So what about ukuleles? Ukuleles are great - if what you want is a ukulele. The problem is that many people end up buying a ukulele because what they want is a small, portable, easy-to-play guitar. And if that’s what you want, we think a Loog is better suited for you.
Last but not least, when you get a Loog, you get more than just a guitar: you get an instrument bundled with a learning app, flashcards and video lessons. So when it comes down to value, Loog Guitars are also a better option.

Can I play ANY song on a 3-string guitar?
Yes. In fact, a regular chord in a standard 6-string guitar is usually comprised of no more than 3 notes. Loog Guitars allow you to play real chords and any song. It will not sound as full as if it were played with a high-end, concert guitar, but because of that same reason it provides a more approachable experience; more suitable for kids and beginners.
If I learn to play a Loog Guitar, can I then use those learnings to play a regular 6-string guitar?
Yes, playing a Loog is not entirely different from playing a traditional guitar, it is just simpler. Since we use the same first three strings -and tuning- of a six-string guitar, everything you learn on a Loog can later be applied on a standard guitar. The transition is natural and seamless. Likewise, you can buy books or go online to find the chords to your favorite songs, and use those same chord-tabs meant for six-string guitars to play on your Loog. You just need to pay attention to the finger-placement on the first three strings and simply ignore the other ones!
What is the minimum age recommendation for Loog Guitars?
We recommend the Loog Mini for children 3 and up, the Loog Pro for kids 6 and up, and the Loog Pro VI for kids 9 and up.
Is The Loog Guitar only for kids?
Absolutely not. We designed them for kids, but even the Loog Mini is certainly suitable for just anybody who likes to play guitar. We count parents, grandparents and even pro guitarists as some of our most loyal customers.
How do you tune a Loog Guitar?
Quick answer: GBE, from low to high.
Loog Guitars use the same first three strings -and tuning- of a six-string guitar. This is why everything you learn on a Loog can later be applied on a standard guitar.
Now, Loog Guitars are all about exploration, so you can also use other string-configurations and tuning if you want to: Open A, Open G… whatever works for you.
Do you offer a left-handed Loog?
Not yet, sorry. We have a few lefties on our team and they simply flip the order of the strings, just like Hendrix did. Worked great for him and works quite well for them too :)
Should a beginner start with the acoustic model first and only then move to an Electric Loog?
Not really. In fact, some argue that it’s easier to start with an electric guitar, because the strings are closer to the fretboard and that makes them more comfortable to play. We suggest going with whatever model you like best.
I am interested in purchasing the Loog for a school. Do you offer special pricing for institutions?
We actually do. Please visit our Educators page to learn more.

Loog Pro VI Acoustic Reviews
Nice kids instrument!
Cool piece of well crafted music fun for my kiddos!
Kid loves it
Nice guitar. Shipped very quickly. Paint job is lovely for the most part few imperfections on the neck but its not below the quality that I expected. Guitar was strung upside down when it arrived which is annoying guy who strung the guitar must have been a lefty. The sound it great just what I was looking for a guitar thats suitable for learning. Daughter asked for the toy guitar at the store but I thought the real deal would be a better investment. Loog had what I was looking for. I would recommend this purchase. Bought this for a tall five year old the fit is great.
Excellent Customer Service & Product
I ordered a Loog for my daughter a few weeks back and she was so excited! Unfortunately, the one sent was defective. It had gaps between the body and finger/fret board which was causing some problems with the sound, especially when open notes were played. I contacted the company and sent in proof of purchase and some pics of the gaps. Immediately, they rectified the situation by offering a gift card for the total value of a new one and replaced it for us! My daughter is back to learning how to play and writing her own songs! This company made a wrong right and I highly recommend buying a guitar through them.
Decent beginner guitar and great app.
I bought this for an 11 year old. I love the app for beginners. The guitar is decent. However, I think you can improve on the tuners.
Bought a white guitar for our daughter for Christmas. She is very performance oriented and as an eight year-old, she has no musical experience. Our idea is to channel her fun and creativity through the arts. She has been taking weekly lessons with an online instructor we found through LessonFace and she seems to be getting better each week. We have no complaints about the guitar. It is beautiful and seems sturdy. Hopefully she continues to learn how to play it with some ability.
