A.J.Lucas / Pavilion Sweep 13 / 2016 / French Polish / Guitar For Sale
Pavilion Sweep 13 model made in 2016. 13 refers to the fret at which the neck and body would join without the cutaway. The significance of this is that the bridge is lower on the soundboard than a 14 fret guitar and closer to the widest part of the lower bout where movement is freer.
The soundboard is European spruce, the back and sides osage orange, the neck reclaimed Honduras mahogany and the fingerboard and bridge laburnum. The head veneer and rosette are Italian olive wood. The machine heads are made by Schertler. The finish is French polish and the guitar comes with a Hiscox ProII case. It is fitted with a Headway Snake under saddle pickup and there is a strap button on the heel (not shown in the photos.
This guitar has had some light use and that is reflected in the price. There are some minor marks in the finish and the fingerboard shows some signs of use.

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.
