Hi everybody! Let me briefly introduce myself: I am Michel Lâg-Chavarria, founder and master luthier of Lâg Guitars. Aside from my family and my studies, I've always dedicated my whole life to music and the arts in general, with a special addiction for guitars, but also for photography, poetry, and nature.
In 1978, after 8-years of experience as a guitar-player and singer in several French pop and rock bands, I started on the crazy (but so exciting) project to create and produce high-end guitars in Toulouse, in the South-West of France, a city well-known for its famous artists and its really active music scene!
I first started an efficient and reliable repair shop dedicated to all stringed instruments. This shop brought a lot of knowledge and experience, as well as many different and interesting customers through our Custom Shop models! Then, thanks to many musician friends who had built a great image for Lâg guitars on stage and in studio, we introduced our first creations to guitar dealers and players; in France first, then all around Europe, with a lot of success.
