The Electric Loog was unveiled last November on Kickstarter, marking the second time Loog used the crowdfunding platform to launch its products. The project raised $70,007 in just 30 days, breaking Loog’s previous record and resulting in one of the most successful musical instruments ever launched through Kickstarter.
The Electric Loog Guitars come in a vintage-y color palette and are equipped with a lipstick-style pickup. As with the acoustic Loog, the Electric Loog Guitars have only three strings, making it easier and faster for children and beginners to learn how to play. Interestingly, many professional guitarists have added a Loog to their collection too, as the constraint of fewer strings actually acts as a trigger for creativity and helps them rediscover ways of playing when they grab a Loog Guitar.
