AS EASY AS 1-2-3
Playing songs on guitar can be a daunting task for beginners. Loog solves this: our 3-string guitars reduce chords to the basic triad, allowing for an easier and faster learning process. With a Loog, kids can play songs on day one, feeling rewarded and encouraged to keep on playing and learning.
LEARN ON A LOOG, PLAY ANY GUITAR.
Loog guitars use the first three strings of a guitar: same strings, same tuning. This is why finger placement and everything you learn on a Loog can be applied on a 6-string guitar too. It's a seamless transition that allows kids to learn on a Loog and then play any guitar.
GUITAR + APP + FLASHCARDS
MORE THAN JUST A GUITAR
All Loog guitars come bundled with flashcards and an app that have everything you need to learn how to play guitar. We also host FREE live lessons via Zoom; these are thirty-minute sessions covering guitar basics, meant as a starting guide for kids who just got a Loog.
LESSONS + SONGS + AR + MONSTERS!
THE LOOG APP
The free Loog Guitar app has everything you need to play songs: video lessons, a tuner, and a digital songbook so you can learn by playing real songs (Beatles, Stones, Taylor Swift and more). It even has an AUGMENTED REALITY feature that allows you to learn guitar using the selfie camera!
REAL WOOD, REAL GUITAR.
Loog guitars are small, fun and cute, but they are not a toy: they are real instruments, made out of real wood, that project a sweet, beautiful sound that's just unbelievable for a guitar of this size and price.
BENEFITS BEYOND MUSIC
THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING
Playing a musical instrument helps children benefit in almost every level: it enhances their cognitive skills while fostering creative thinking and their ability to focus. With Loog, kids are playing and having fun from the very beginning, acquiring skills that stay with them forever.

Why should I get a Loog over a more traditional beginner’s guitar?
Most guitars for kids are simply cheap, scaled-down replicas 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 build and materials, chances are your kid won’t feel engaged enough to play.
Why should I get a Loog over a ukulele?
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 Mini is better suited for you. You see, a ukulele is an entirely different instrument: it has its own strings, its own tuning and its own sound. The Loog Pro Acoustic has acoustic guitar strings and standard guitar tuning, so it plays and sounds just like a guitar. So if you want to get a ukulele, you should definitely get one (they are actually fun to play along with the Loog!). But if what you really want is a small, fun guitar, we humbly propose that you consider a Loog.
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 the Loog Pro?
We recommend the Loog Pro for children 8 and up.
My kid is 6-7 years old; should I get a Mini or a Pro?
We recommend the Loog Mini for kids 3 and up and the Loog Pros for kids 8 and up. With that said, if there's a tallish 6-7 year-old who you feel might be better off with a Pro, that should be fine too. Our age recommendation is based on general standards, but obviously every kid is different so feel free to follow your gut on this one :)
Is the Loog Pro only for kids?
Absolutely not. We designed it for kids, but it is certainly suitable for 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.
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 :)

This was the perfect gift for my little (6 yo) man. He loves it...the chords are easy for him to learn and he has been strumming away since it came out of the box. In his own words, “my guitar tickles my heart.” It can’t get better than that.
We use it daily just to have fun as we are both learning to play. Much easier to use than a 6 string as far as learning goes. Happy we made the purchase and is very good quality instrument.
I bought this for my 7 year old granddaughter and Taylor Swift super-fan, who was dying for a red guitar. I wanted to be sure she had some fairly quick success, so she would love playing as much as I did as a teen. Today we learned Swift’s “Shake It Off,” thanks to the wonderful Loog app, and the smile on her face was just heart melting. We took the Loog back to my place, pulled out the bongos for 5 year old bro, and had a family band with my 12 string playing backup to the Loog. It was amazing. If you’re on the fence about this product, don’t be.5$3 sound is great for the size, the quality of craftsmanship is solid, and the colors are outstanding. I’m thinking about getting one of their 6 string electrics for fun for myself!
We bought this as a Christmas gift for our 7 year old grandson. He loves it, and it is a great size for him. He has learned C and G chords. We are hoping that he will keep practicing and will actually learn to play. It is well constructed and sounds great for a small guitar!
We brought two guitars for our grandchildren. They are having a great time learning how to play My only one issue was that we took advantage of a great Christmas sale by Loog but were disappointed that the colors that we wanted were sold out Other than that the guitars were ordered in the middle of the holiday season but were shipped to us super fast!
