MELVILLE, NY, April 27, 2010 â€” LÃ‚G Guitars has exclusively chosen ElixirÂ® Strings to outfit their acoustic steel string guitar models. LÃ‚G Guitars made their U.S. debut in January 2010 with the unveiling of the all-new Tramontane line of acoustic and acoustic/electric guitars. Based in France, LÃ‚G has been making high quality guitars for over 25 years under the guidance of master luthier Michel LÃ¢g Chavarria.
In explaining the decision to select Elixir Strings, Michel Chavarria said, â€œElixir Strings stay in perfect condition for a very long time with no rust, no loss of tone and warmth, and no decrease in sustain. Even after a while, you still have the feeling of playing with brand new strings. Our Tramontane guitars always sound as good as the first day you string them, even
weeks or months after.â€?
Established in 1995, Elixir Strings began providing a string with long-lasting tonal qualities. In addition to its long life span, the popular string brand was also chosen by LÃ‚G for its high quality, and most importantly, a tone that complements that of the Tramontane series guitars. Chavarria went on to explain: â€œOur guitars always have warm and deep tones, mellow mids, together with a round and precise bass, thanks to our very unique construction. Elixir Strings bring another step into the high notes: perfect precision without being aggressive, and without bass loss. This is unique. You can play soft or hard, and your playing attack style â€“ with a pick or with your fingers â€“ always catches the perfect nuances. In fact, the Elixir Strings are the most valuable addition to a good guitar â€“ after your own playing!â€?
Named for a seasonal wind in southern France, the Tramontane (Trah-mon-tahn) line includes both steel string and nylon guitars. LÃ‚G Tramontane guitars are distinguished by their use of fine woods, quality craftsmanship and finishes, beveled or â€œsoftenedâ€? bindings and proprietary preamp/pickup systems.
