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 :)
100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEED

I received my guitar and everything was perfect. My only complaint is that the app for android keeps crashing. My wife has the app on her iPhone and it works fine.
It’s common knowledge that the accompaniment app seems like an afterthought and needs revamping. It’s trying to be cute and visual but the actual technology is slightly faulty and buggy. But this is about the guitar. Bought this for my 6 year old and she is tall for her age and fits it perfectly. It helps her understand that music should be fun and gives me an excuse to encourage and applaud her daily. This is the importance of loog. It also gives her a sense of responsibility and ownership. It brings her joy because we only practice for fun and for short periods to make sure every experience with it is joyous. Math and reading are harder to cultivate this relationship with. Music is specifically made to be understood before words. I wish we had found this earlier. The guitar is well crafted and will serve her well until she sizes up to a full size. I wish the tuners were slightly better quality but the guitar itself surprises me with its competence. Glad for this purchase and would recommend.
I bought the acoustic Pro for my 11-year-old son. I am very glad that I stuck with the three string Pro as it has been so easy for him to catch on. He has been playing every chance he gets and I’m amazed at how much he has learned already. The app has been great. It is a lot of fun and easy to navigate. We have had some cheaper kids guitars in the past that the kids enjoyed playing with but never learned on. This one is worth the money as it is a great guitar but also very easy to learn how to play on.
Our 8.5 yr old likes her guitar and is slowly building up some confidence. The steel strings are challenging for littler fingers and I wish we’d had an option to choose nylon for this first instrument. I suppose we can switch them out. The app seems fun at first, but isn’t as functional as we’d expected. She seems to leap from “tuning for the first time” and “playing games without a guitar in your hands” straight to “here’s a song to play.” There seem to be some intermediate steps that are missing. She’ll keep playing with it (and I’ve started to as well, mostly so I can help). But some refining of the app would go a long way to reducing frustration.
The guitar is excellent quality and the learning tools are first rate. The kids are constantly arguing over who gets the next turn with the cool guitar. Such a great learning tool for youngsters
