A.J.Lucas / Obelisk / 2024 / Natural Osmo Oil / Guitar For Sale



This Obelisk electric has a body made from pine that formed the main structure of a square piano that was made over 200 years ago. It's been resonating to music for a long time! The neck is quilted maple capped by a fingerboard in fumed eucalyptus. Fuming the wood with ammonia is a traditional furniture technique that reacts with tanins in the wood to darken it.

I have introduced a new 6-in-line headstock which allows the strings to pass over the nut (and zero fret) with virtually no lateral deviation.

The pickups comprise a Telecaster-type single coil in the bridge and a Filtertron-type hum bucker in the neck position. Together with the lightweight body this gives a snappy and open response. The control cavity has a magnetic wooden cover that can be opened without the need for a screwdriver.

The finish is Osmo Oil which is tactile and shows off the beauty of the woods and is quite hard-wearing. The machine heads are Gotoh 'Kluson' style - elegant and functional. 

Lower bout width: 340mm

Nut width: 42mm

Weight: 2850g

Scale length 650mm

The guitar comes with a 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.
