Larry Lothson started repairing and building guitars in 1974. Through trial and error, the first original Lothson guitar was built in 1980. The guitar's unique shape was originally designed by Larry Lothson himself for perfect balance and its original “Timeless Quality” in all aspects of building.

A Lothson guitar is solely made by Larry Lothson from start to finish. The finest, most reliable electronics on the market are used, and each aluminum tailpiece is custom designed. His L. A. Signature model is crafted from Honduras mahogany, aged well over 30 years. The fingerboards, too, are aged over 30 years, crafted from superior East Indian rosewood not found on today's market. Top quality, hand-selected flamed maple is used for the bound, two piece carved top. Crucial parts are crafted on the same equipment used in the heyday of early guitar building and woodworking, with some of the machinery painstakingly rebuilt and restored. Every guitar requires countless hours of special attention to bring out its best, which they undoubtedly receive.

Quality components, over 35 years experience in building guitars, and the love of the instrument come together in the one and only Lothson guitars.
