The Loomis NT is a rock solid guitar and it weighs a ton or so, maybe two. Mine was fine except for unfinished fretwork. It is a real beauty and it sounds killer.
... i don't like it half as much as my Ibbies. I still can't say if its the neck, the scale or the frets that make my hands cramp... but it does not happen with my RG1527 or my RG827QMZ.
It's not the guitar, it's me. So trying it out yourself is the only way to be sure.
