A.J.Lucas Luthier
Adrian J. Lucas

A.J.Lucas has been building guitars and related instruments since 1990. 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 . He likes to work with customers to design instruments that are fitted to their exact needs. In this way each instrument is unique. A.J.Lucas tries, where possible, to use reclaimed, local and sustainable woods.

The Holy Grail Guitar Show is a great opportunity to show my work in the context of my peers to a public who are there to check out some of the best guitars in the world. It’s also a uniquely valuable opportunity to share thoughts with fellow luthiers.

I think of guitar building as a way of life more than a job. To create vehicles for music is immensely satisfying and to tailor them to a specific player even more so. The Holy Grail Guitar Show is a great opportunity to show my work in the context of my peers to a public who are there to check out some of the best guitars in the world. It’s also a uniquely valuable opportunity to share thoughts with fellow luthiers.
