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.

as easy as 1-2-3
Our 3-string guitars reduce chords to the basic triad -just three notes at a time-, making the learning process easier, faster and less intimidating for kids. And because we use standard guitar tuning, everything you learn on a Loog can be applied on a 6-string guitar too.
We host FREE lessons via Zoom every Saturday. Plus, all our guitars come with flashcards and an app containing everything you need to learn how to play guitar.
The Loog App
The free Loog Guitar app has 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
The Loog Pro is small, fun and cute, but it's not a toy: it's a real guitar, made out of real wood, that projects a sweet, beautiful sound that's unbelievable for a guitar of this size and price.

Loog Pro Acoustic Reviews
Great product and Great Service!
This is a Christmas gift so I have not tried out the product or anything that comes with it yet! But I received everything in good condition and it is SO super cute. I’m very excited for her to try it out :)
Gig Bag arriving 2 weeks later than rest of bundle
Guitar & strap arrived very quickly (less than a week after ordering--just in time for our granddaughter's BD), but we are still awaiting the gig bag. Received an updated notice that another package was on its way, but link showed the Loog Pro Acoustic Bundle, so was confused & thought another whole order was coming. If this is typical with the bundle, perhaps that could be made more clear.
Game changer for him
My boy loves this guitar. He’s had it for a few weeks now and he still initiates lessons with me everyday with out fail. It’s given him some responsibility, I told him when I gave it to him, he can play it whenever, but if I find it in the floor, and out of the case, he looses it for a day. It’s always in the case. If you knew my son, you’d know how amazing that is. I think a lot of his maintained interest and perseverance has to do with the app. He likes earning points and buying new glasses, guitars etc. He has the 3 string acoustic and he turns 7 next month, so he’s still kinda small for it, but he has 3 chords down already, and he’ll continue to grow into it. It seems to be out of tune quite a bit but even with that, you have to remember that, 1) it was $150. 2) he’s 6 and it gets banged around a lot, 3) he gets more practice tuning the guitar.
Loog Pro Guitar
I purchased the Loog for my grandson. He loves it. He loves the podcasts online and he is actually is learning from them. He also likes the games. I think the guitar has great sound.
