Named after the seasonal winds that sweep Northern France and the Mediterranean, Tramontane guitars are designed by LAG to be refined instruments, with an emphasis on creating a penetrating and inspiring core tone.
The acoustic/electric models LAG produce combine state-of-the-art pickup and preamp designs with old-world construction techniques, delivering a refined instrument that meets today's demands with spirit and vitality.
Since being released in the UK in 2010, the Tramontane range has impressed many guitarists by offering both style and quality while balancing an affordable price. At NAMM 2010, the editor of Music. Inc Magazine, Zach Philips said of the Tramontanes: "This line solves the problem of finding a well-made beginner to mid-range acoustic guitar. [They] play like guitars at twice that price." These guitars went on to be awarded NAMM 2010's Best in Show Award.
Hailing from Southern France, LAG Guitars have become renowned throughout Britain, America and Europe for producing innovative and inspiring musical instruments. Their acoustic guitars are favoured by creative and outspoken artists such as Liv Kristine, Pete Doherty of Babyshambles and the Libertines, as well as Rob Skipper of the Holloways.
Remarkable for their meteroic rise to fame, LAG have not only impressed their musicians but also the leaders of the industry and their customers: this was demonstrated when LAG Guitars were voted 'Best Acoustic Guitar Brand' by US retailers in a recent poll held by Musical Merchandise Review (MMR) trade magazine.
