LAG Guitars – the History
A little more than thirty years ago, Michel Lâg-Chavarria began hand-crafting beautiful electric guitars in Toulouse in southern France. Having played guitar in several successful French Pop and Rock bands, Michel was well aware of the features and build quality that guitarists were looking for.
His unique designs gained great popularity throughout Europe and exposure by the likes of the Scorpions and Motorhead provided added immeasurable prestige to the brand.
Over the years Michel Lâg-Chavarria’s unique designs and innovations became known for further enhancing the tone, structure and playability of his instruments. Popularity soared and the waiting lists for his instruments became longer, growing significantly as guitarists scrambled to own their own Lag.
In recognition of Michel Lâg-Chavarria’s expertise and success as a “Boutique” builder, he was approached by French music giant Algam International (the largest distributor of Musical Instruments in France) who proposed building some of his designs in Asia. At first Michel rejected the offer but over time he realised that by producing some of his unique designs and innovations in Asia under strict quality control, Lag Guitars could be made available to all French guitarists, rather than just the elite or those with lots of money.
An alliance between Michel and Algam International was struck resulting in a range of high quality Electrics built in Asia for the French market only. Introduced in 2004 with resounding success, it didn’t take long before the flood of inquiries from England, Germany and other parts of Europe forced the decision to expand distribution to include Britain Germany and Australia in 2005 -again to resounding success.
Lag Guitars are now available in every major country around the World and have won countless awards and accolades from the international music industry. southcoastmusic has been there right from the start and we are proud to offer these exceptional instruments to you. Everything about these guitars exudes quality, from the look, style, features and tone…there is nothing else like them at this price. We believe that Lag guitars offer incredible value for money.
