Nick Lucas Grande
A majestic and powerful model
$3,649
Gibson's collaboration with Nick Lucas gave birth to a majestic and powerful model. The deep body provides a full bass range with crisp and lively treble tones, for a sound that's remarkably balanced across every register. This historic "once-in-a-lifetime" limited edition features English walnut ribs and back and a Sitka spruce top with hide glue bracing for unequaled resonance. A superior tone is created with the 12-fret-to-body design. Classic Nick Lucas MOP inlay, Gibson Script logo, and Fleur De Lis detail this highly custom model. The guitar is outfitted with quality Waverly nickel open-back tuners and given a rare and beautiful Honey Burst finish. Only 50 of these handcrafted heirloom instruments will be built and this limited edition features the added versatility of a built-in L.R. Baggs® LyricTM pickup with a bridge plate mounted microphone for superior acoustic amplification.
