1993 Mark Lacey Virtuoso Archtop Guitar

Here we have a one of a kind custom archtop guitar by master luthier Mark Lacey. This 18" guitar was commissioned by a guitar dealer/collector back when Mark had his workshop in Hollywood. Over the years, it's changed hands and picked up a few scars along the way but it remains an incredible sounding and playing guitar. The larger 18 inch body makes it an obvious choice as an acoustic rhythm guitar..

The overall condition is good. There's lots of lacquer checking throughout, plus several surface scratches, scuff markes and a few paint chips. Had this precious guitar been looked after a little better, it would be priced considerably higher. A new one with the same spec would set you back £25k.

This Virtuoso features a hand engraved, soap pierced, 24k gold plated tailpieces. The mother of pearlseashell inlays are intricately hand engraved. The top is close grained sitka spruce (x-braced) and the back and sides are maple. Only the absolute finest of woods are selected for this model. The Virtuoso also features multiple bindings, 25 1/4" scale length, 1 11/16" nut and Grover Imperial tuners. Comes with original hardshell case.
