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, small guitars. 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 these 3-string guitars?
Yes, playing a Fender x Loog is not entirely different from playing a traditional guitar; it is just simpler. Since we use the same first three strings and tuning as a six-string guitar, everything you learn on a Fender x Loog can later be applied to 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 Fender x Loog guitars?
We recommend the Fender x Loog guitars for children 6 and up.
Are the Fender x Loog guitars only for kids?
Absolutely not! We designed them for kids, but they are 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.
The Fender x Loog guitars use the same first three strings -and tuning- of a six-string guitar. This is why everything you learn on a Fender x Loog can later be applied on a standard guitar.
Now, these 3-string 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 Fender x 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 :)
What strings do these guitars use?
The Fender x Loog guitars use regular electric guitar strings: 1st (high E), 2nd (B) and 3rd (G). Gauges .011, .015 and .019. We offer a 3-string set that can be bought as replacements, but you can use your preferred brand too.
Can I plug these guitars to an amp?
Yes! The Fender x Loog guitars have a standard 1/4 jack so they are compatible with any guitar amp. We offer a pretty cool Loog-branded mini amp, but any guitar amp -big or small, will work.
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 bought as a gift for muy grandson He start with a teacher ! He loves his new guitar
It's so small
I love it! I admittedly only bought this because I collect Telecaster guitars and I wanted a mini version but it's so fun to play it's my go to couch guitar. This guitar is well built and the finish is top notch. The fact that it uses a standard size tele neck pickup means that you could really trick this thing out of you wanted to...and I really want to! I'm super happy with my purchase. When you guys do an Eddie Van Halen edition (please, please, please) I'll be the first in line.
Hey guys, Just received my order yesterday and I'm more than happy! I bought it for me (an adult) and I'm very pleased with this little guitar. Looks cool, sounds great, and pretty fun to play with. The only little thing I wish was better (and it's just a detail) is the neck. I thought it will be sealed or a little bit more finished. Thank you for the fast shipping, and keep up the good work! I work as a music teacher, and I'll recommend this guitar to my students. Thanks again! Paul
Great guitar for adults!
I realize these guitars are marketed more as a starter guitar for children, but as a guitar player for more than 50 years these are great for adults as well. It's a lot of fun to play simplified chords on a small guitar! It sounds really good and is very well made. I tune mine to DGB which gives it more of a mid range sound than the GBE tuning it comes with. That makes it an open "G" tuning, so barre chords for the major chords are easy. It's great for slide as well. I use the 2nd, 3rd and 4th strings from an .11 gauge string set. No work on the nut was required. I did lower the saddles and raise the pickup, though. This would be a perfect gift for a guitar player. I mean it's a miniature Tele that says "Fender" on the headstock! I defy any guitar player to play one of these through a cranked amp and not smile. It's impossible!
Loog customer service was excellent - they were very responsive and helpful.
