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.
