The new Loog electric guitars have a built-in amp. Yep. We managed to fit an amplifier and a speaker in there! And we did it in a quite subtle way: there’s virtually no extra weight, no awkward knobs or controls and the classic Loog guitar silhouette stays unchanged.

BUILT-IN AMP & SPEAKER
With its slim 3-string neck, the Loog Mini makes it super easy to form chords and play songs, even for kids as young as 3.
LEARN ON A LOOG. PLAY ANY GUITAR.
The Loog Mini is about the same size as a ukulele, but plays and sounds like a guitar because it uses classical guitar strings and standard guitar tuning. This is why everything you learn on a Loog can be applied on a 6-string guitar as well.
THE LOOG APP
The new Loog app makes it fun for kids to tune and play their Loog. There's a songbook with tunes by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars, and even a monkey drummer to help them stay on the beat.
The accompanying (and free) Loog Guitar app has a new AUGMENTED REALITY feature that allows you to learn guitar using the selfie camera! Just hold your Loog in front of the camera and the app will show you where to place your fingers to form chords and play songs. It's like having a magic mirror and your reflected image is already a rockstar!
The Loog Mini Electric In Action
Why should I get a Loog Mini 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 Mini 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 Mini has classical 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.
What is the minimum age recommendation for Loog Guitars?
We recommend the Loog Mini for children 3 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 Mini 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.
