A.J.Lucas / Arbour Sweep 12 / 2020 / Osmo Oil/Natural / Guitar For Sale
My Arbour model has a lower bout width of 380mm (15") so is a similar size to an OM. The guitar has a sweep cutaway giving access to the highest frets and the bridge is located at the widest part of the body - the 'sweet spot', as on a 12 fret guitar. The scale length is 650mm (25.6").
The soundboard is European spruce with some bearclaw figuring. The back and sides are English yew, with the back being a 4-piece. The neck is reclaimed Honduras mahogany from an old table. The fingerboard and bridge are 5000-year old bog oak.
The finish is Osmo oil - a finish developed for wooden flooring that is durable and tactile and allows the guitar to breathe.
COmes with a Hiscox Pro II hard case.
A J Lucas Luthier, UK
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.
