Description

Livewire, folks! We’ve landed an explosive Kenny Smith model from Randy Lucas that dates back to 1999, and has opened up handsomely in the past 20 years. Based on Kenny Smith’s 1935 D-18, this signature model is outfitted with Mahogany back and sides, Adirondack Spruce on top, and a K&K Pure Mini (with vintage 1/8” input). Thistle headstock, Waverly tuners, and a sweet flatpicker’s setup with lots of saddle left.
The voice is clean and loud, plenty of bark in the bass but well balanced across the strings for an even response. This Randy Lucas KS speaks for itself, in no uncertain terms.

I’m a big fan of a powerful D-18 style guitar. Randy Lucas is one of the few who’s revered for being able to capture all the tone of a prewar Martin. Kenny Smith, the professional recording artist, worked with Randy to develop this signature model, and it’s wonderful. Incredible clarity, bass response, and projection. This one has some miles on it and it makes me like it even more, When guitars are played a lot they simply sound better.
