A.J.Lucas / Pergola Sweep / 2015 / French Polish / Guitar
This Pergola Sweep guitar is made entirely from European woods: European spruce soundboard, yew sides, yew and cherry back, cherry and poplar neck, and fingerboard and bridge in laburnum. The sides are laminated with oak on the inside to be double thickness. This gives a solid foundation to the soundboard so that its energy is more efficiently projected as sound. The rosette is made from a piece of yew incorporating the sapwood and heartwood to great effect. The finish is French polish. This guitar has a scale length of 650mm giving it more definition and punch than the shorter scale versionof this model.
Complete with Hiscox 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.
