A.J.Lucas / Arbour 13-Fret / 2022 / Osmo Oil / Guitar For Sale

This Arbour has a 13 fret body join so that while the bridge can be close to the widest part of the lower bout there is still good access to the upper frets. It also features a Manzer wedge across the body which allows a deeper body than normal but with the usual slim side depth on the bass side where it tucks under the player's right arm.

The soundboard is English yew - an unusual soundboard wood which reinforces the notes' fundamentals, back and sides are French pear and the neck reclaimed Honduras mahogany. The fingerboard is 5,300-year-old bog oak, as is the bridge, the binding and the background to the rosette and head veneer. The white dots in the fingerboard, rosette and head veneer are English holly.

‚ÄčThe frets are EVO Gold and the machine heads Gotoh 510 Minis.

‚ÄčThe guitar is finished in Osmo oil giving a beautiful matt sheen that is very tactile and allows the player to feel connected to the wood.

 Complete with Hiscox ProII case.

I believe passionately in the connection between player and instrument. The guitar should not be a barrier between the musician and their music and so I builds tactile guitars that one can feel a visceral connection with. As much as possible I use reclaimed and local woods without compromising the quality of the instruments. I was originally trained in architecture and my work is informed by a sense of form and structure.

I build mainly steel string flat-top, electric and classical guitars to my own designs but also make mandolin family instruments and ukuleles.
