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.

We offer free shipping on U.S. orders, and 30-day returns. We have a hassle-free returns policy, but we do require that both the product and its packaging are intact to qualify for a full refund. Through our partnership with the Playing For Change foundation we donate returned (and fully functional) guitars to music education programs serving minorities and children in need.

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.

 

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.

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

Received our Loog mini acoustic super fast and the packaging was a cute tiny box. Appreciate the follow up email from the company which was really nice! It's a Christmas gift for my son so he hasn't seen it yet but he's always playing with my guitar so him being able to actually lift up and play his own guitar will have him ecstatic!

Great item!

We received our guitar in a timely fashion as a gift for our three-year old son. He loves it. It's the last thing he wants to use before bed and the first thing he wants to play with when he gets up. I can't wait to start the lessons with him.

Perfect Gift from a Grandparent!

We bought the guitar for our granddaughter. She is just a toddler but we expect it will be hugely poplar. She loves music and has a tiny piano she likes to "play" on and likes it when her father plays his big guitar for her. We have not yet given the Loog Mini Acoustic to her, but can't wait to see the look on her face when she gets it and watch as she grows into playing it.

Great Little Instrument!

Bought for a young grandson who is showing interest in music. His dad plays bass guitar in a band and was very impressed with the quality of the Loog Mini Acoustic. Well made and sturdy, this guitar seems destined for many quality hours of fun and learning.
