Description

Here we have a Lucas LSJW in rare Micro Curl Koa and Adirondack. Randy Lucas has a long history of building the finest guitars as well as doing some amazing restoration work which gives him unusual insights into tone and strucural integrity. Randy's current focus is on his new wedge body shapes that are among the most versatile instruments you will find. He builds with only seasoned woods and hide glue and draws on his vast knowledge of vintage guitars to create his own wonderful voice. You have never seen Koa this special, it has super tight 'micro curl', fiddle back style flame everywhere. The Adirondack top is master grade and perfect. Curly Maple bindings and abalone trim wrap the guitar in a wonderful contrast that is elegant and sublime. This is a big sounding guitar, that is kept in control thanks to the wedge body shape, which also makes it easy to hold.

Randy built this guitar along with the Brazilian Rosewood model to showcase his work at the Healdsburg Guitar Festival. As a show guitar it deserved his best set of rare Koa with what he calls micro curl. This is a dense, flame figure on top of the finest color and grain. This wood is simply unlike any Koa we've ever seen. In addition to being breathtakingly beautiful it has a rich and vibrant voice. I love Koa on a larger body and paired here with Adirondack you get a powerful full voice with a chimey top end shimmer. Listen to the clip and you'll understand how well voiced this guitar is. The micro curl Maple neck has an amazing feel and Randy's setup is among the best. He dresses the fret ends and fingerboard edges for ultimate comfort and playability. With Koa becoming more rare, many of our collectors are adding it to there collections and this one is certainly a gem.
 
This is a super guitar, strong and clear sounding.
