What We Think

If there's anyone who knew how to make a guitar that captures tradition while pushing the boundaries of modern guitar technology, it was Rick Turner. The Model 1 may be over 40 years old, but still boasts many features that only recently became commonplace. It's active preamp + Piezo pickup allow for incredible tonal variety and clarity you won't find elsewhere. In addition, the quality of the craftsmanship is simply stunning. A high quality bookmatched top is nothing new, but bookmatched sides are a feature unique to this model 1 that add another layer of luxury to the instrument. If you want to know why Lindsey Buckingham still plays the model 1 to this day, call in now to speak to one of our guitar specialists before it's gone!

Manufacturer's Description from Other


Incredibly acoustic and detailed... screams louder and longer than any guitar you’ve played.

The Model 1-DLX-C, also known as the LB, is the instrument best known as Lindsey Buckingham’s main stage guitar. The “B” version of this guitar is the model associated with John Mayer.

All of the LB Series Model 1s are highly detailed instruments, featuring a 5 piece laminated maple and purple heart neck. *Upgrade options available for the Standards.

Pegheads with Rick’s signature 5 layer veneered backstrap overlay and neck joints with multi-layer purfling.

The LB Series (also called Deluxe) are fully bound, top & back, accenting the Model 1s highly contoured ergonomic body.


In a word, the Model 1 is all about versatility. Whether you’re playing the passive model running straight out with volume and tone control (push-pull coil cut) or the high-headroom 18-volt D-TAR Eclipse preamp with Turner Parametric EQ, both options allow for blending of a piezo or second magnetic pickup.
