The OO, LOO and the Nick Lucas Special (all the same body shape) bridge the gap between the small bodied Parlour guitars and the larger OOO/OM and dreadnaught guitars. Being a mid sized instrument, the LOO performs as a marvellous fingerstyle guitar able to achieve both a delicate and responsive tone as well as a raw strumming drive when needed with room to move across the entire fingerboard with the neck joining the body at the 14th fret or with 12 frets to body for the OO, or 12, 13, or 14 frets to the body to suit the Nick Lucas model.
The LOO is as versatile a guitar as the OOO but with a smaller body.
All features of every element can be custom tailored to suit the players needs. All are listed in Options
