What We Think

This LS1 is a fully carved 7-string archtop handmade by Ron Lucca in his US custom shop. The body is comfortable in size and shape, and the premium tonewoods resonate quite freely. Ron Lucca carves tailpieces and pickguards for Bob Benedetto, and his close association with the Benedetto tradition can be easily seen in his work on this guitar. There are precious few options in the realm of 7-string US-made archtops, and even fewer still that can come close to this level of quality under $3000--don't miss out! 

Feel free to call or email Sound Pure for more information!

Manufacturer's Description from Other

The first LS1 was sold to a professional guitarist in Germany who saw my Herloom guitar in Just Jazz Magazine. He asked me to build him a custom thinline archtop and traveled to the USA to pick it up when it was ready. I liked it so much that I made one for myself and published in JJG. I made 20 in the next three years. 

All the instruments listed on the Lucca Custom Shoppe page were built to custom order except for the my Heirloom model and the LS1C-7 that I built for my self. Each guitar was made to the specifications of the owner including the dimensions of the neck thickness, width of the nut and the string spacing. All ebony parts are Lucca Custom Guitar custom made parts built with care and skill developed over 30 years of instrument luthiery. See the about us page for my history as a luthier.

I have heard from many guitarists that owning a custom made instrument was something that they only dreamed of because the price was out of sight.  Because of the large number of great builders, that dream can become a reality. There are hundreds of luthiers who are building beautiful guitars for players not just collectors. Shop around and find the person who can answer your questions and is willing to build the guitar of your dreams for you the way you have always dreamed it should be. There are many new builders who are doing a fine job. They will build your first custom instrument at a reasonable price with pride and care. Because I was willing to do just that, I have had many repeat buyers.
