A.J.Lucas luthier
Adrian Lucas

A.J.Lucas believes passionately in the connection between player and instrument. The guitar should not be a barrier between the musician and their music and so he builds tactile guitars that one can feel a visceral connection with. As much as possible he uses reclaimed and local woods without compromising the quality of the instruments. He was originally trained in architecture and his work is informed by his sense of form and structure. He builds mainly steel string flat-top and classical guitars to his own designs but also makes electric guitars, mandolin family instruments and ukuleles.

I am delighted to be exhibiting at the HGGS because the show supports the craft of the artisan guitar builder and maintains the highest of standards. One is in very esteemed company and it is an honour to be part of this great community.
