  • Description

    Lloyd Baggs began his journey in music in fourth grade as a cellist. After playing in youth symphonies he landed in the UCLA symphony while still in high school. Lloyd graduated from college with a degree in Fine Arts and made his first guitar while working as a fine art master printer. After moving to LA he made guitars for Jackson Browne, Ry Cooder, Janis Ian, Graham Nash, and others.

    Lloyd’s interest in pickups began with Ry’s quest to amplify the acoustic he’d built for Ry and led to the LB6, a retrofittable pickup that would not damage the guitar. His goal in forming L.R. Baggs was and still is to amplify the acoustic guitar as faithfully as possible.
