America
Coming to

What a journey I have had, from the rugged, beautiful lands of Bdarieux
in the heart of southern France, to the heart of America.

Driven by a love of life and the


freedom to express oneself I chose
to build guitars that allow others to
do the same. Whether writing folk
songs, love songs, protest songs,
or really any type of song, there is
an undeniable connection between
the music you make and the place
that you come from. That was our
goal when we set up LG Guitars.
To create guitars that perfectly
complement what you have to say
musically naturally and honestly.
A new approach to design, together
with premium quality materials
and consummate craftsmanship,
means our instruments speak with
spellbinding clarity and openness. I
have come far on my musical journey,
and I invite you to take a piece of me
on yours.

Michel Lg Chavarria

Selection
Quality requires imagination, time and hard work. Our talented
designers and expert technicians constantly strive to avoid
stereotypes, and bring refinement and style to the world of the
guitar. These carefully crafted designs, sophisticated and harmonious
finishes, and new combinations of materials, reveal our true obsession
and real concern for beauty.
For LG, the process begins with beautiful and carefully selected
woods. Extreme care is taken in the cutting process and our precision
assembly methods, as well as the drying process, humidity control
and stabilization. The bindings and rosette marquetry including
the Occitan Cross, a symbol from our area of France are perfectly
matched to the curves and material of the fingerboard, bridge and
heel plate, and are globally enhanced by generously profiled body
shapes. The electronics are innovative and user-friendly, allowing any
musician to find a great guitar sound without being a technician! From
French-made Haute Couture guitars, to more affordable models, quality
and originality are our real credo; nothing here is taken for granted!
