A.J.Lucas / Arbour Sweep / 2021 / Osmo Oil/Natural / Guitar


Arbour Sweep 

This guitar has a 650mm scale length and my sweep cutaway with what would be a 12-fret body join without the cutaway. This places the bridge at the widest part of the lower bout where it can drive the soundboard most readily. This is a medium body size but to enhance the lower frequencies I have made the body deeper than usual (115mm at the end) but have countered this with a Manzer wedge so that the body is shallower on the bass side where it fits under the player's forearm and the extra depth is barely noticeable.

The soundboard is European spruce, the back and sides steamed pear, the neck reclaimed Honduras mahogany and the fingerboard and bridge English laburnum. The head veneer and rosette are spalted beech assembled in a 'crazy paving' design. The machine heads are Gotoh 510 minis. The finish is Osmo oil which gives a nice tactile sheen. 

Complete with Hiscox Pro II 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.
