Description

Incredibly cool vintage Gibson! 1926-34 Gibson Nick Lucas Special with a Sunburst finish. Starting this year off with a mystery! This one has us scratching our heads! It’s one of the best sounding and playing Nick Lucas guitars we’ve ever had. Brilliant mid-range gives this acoustic a unique voice, beautiful treble and nice bass (not overpowering). The best we can tell it’s one of three scenarios. 1) This was a special order for a customer who wanted this body style. 2) This was a guitar made with leftover parts at the factory. 3) This was made in the twenties and then sent back to the factory for some kind of repair. Any which way this Nick Lucas Special is a wonderful deep body acoustic.
