A.J.Lucas / Pavilion Sweep / 2022 / Osmo Oil/Natural / Guitar For Sale
This Pavilion Sweep is made with black walnut back and sides salvaged from an American-made19th century church organ that was resident in a Lincolnshire church until recently. It contains a wealth of musical history. The sound board is European spruce cut from some trees that master luthier José Romanillos selected and bought in the 1970s. The neck is reclaimed mahogany and the fingerboard and bridge are bog oak from a tree that grew in England around 5,300 years ago.
As a nod to the guitar's 'organic' origins I have created a keyboard-inspired motif in the rosette and head facing made with bog oak and holly.
The guitar is lightweight and responsive with a tactile Osmo Oil finish which lets the wood breathe and is quite hard-wearing. The machine heads are Gotoh 510 minis - elegant and functional.
The guitar comes with a Hiscox Pro II case.
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.
