A.J.Lucas / Arbour Sweep / 2018 / French Polish / Guitar For Sale
This is my arbour sweep model. The sweep cutaway gives phenomenal access to the upper frets via a very ergonomic heel. Without the cutaway this would be a 12-fret-body-join guitar and consequently the bridge is in the 'sweet spot' at the widest part of the lower bout. The scale length is 650mm giving the guitar great power and a tight sound.
This Arbour Sweep is made entirely with European woods, most of which are local to me.
The soundboard is European spruce. The back and sides are the most astonishing figured English cherry. The neck is English sycamore with a lamination of douglas fir down the middle. The fingerboard and bridge are laburnum.
The machine heads are Gotoh 510s.
The guitar has a french polish finish.
A Hiscox case is included.
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.
