    Nico Moffa opened up orders again in January and I jumped on the opportunity with no idea of how I was going to make it happen. I had just bought a Collings that wasn't and still isn't going anywhere and funds were low, but I'm happy to say it worked out. I had to sell several guitars to make this happen but I have absolutely no regrets.

    Nico and Lara are absolutely wonderful to work with! The Lorraine is the guitar I have been day dreaming about for many years now. I couldn't be happier.

    Sort of. Nico had the spruce for the top and maple for the back started, but other than that everyone else was still customizable. He also makes some of the fixtures and pickups in batches now so he can fulfill orders quicker.

    I'm curious about the Moffa Lorainne.

    Is there a center block under bridge?

    How feedback resistant is it?
    (not talking about duo gigs - but gigs with a loud drummer + percussion at big fest stage volumes)
    Plus gain?


    Those extended rims look really uncomfortable. I'm really sensitive to forearm rim and back rim against your chest.
    ie a 335 is pretty comfy. Not strat comfy but fine. Collings I35 just hurts to play. Forearm is charm and back rim is too.
    How is the loraine?

    Pickups - how do the single vs bucker compare?
    is the single really noise cancelling?

    Thanks for the input!

    I am thinking about ordering a Lorraine from Nico, but am curious about the acoustic tone of the instrument. How well does it project naturally?

    I have a 335 and love it, but I find myself wishing that it had a more organic, louder tone, and an unplugged one to that!

    Does anyone have a video of them playing one unplugged?
