We are proud to offer this stunning archtop made by one of the top luthiers in the guitar business today.  Mark Lacey has done work for a who's who list of pop, rock, and jazz guitarists and is reknown for his acoustic archtops.  This Premier is no exception, being among the finest archtops we have ever encountered.  The Premier model is the standard 17 inch Lacey archtop model and starts as $13,000 new.  This one also has the upgrades of a custom color and electronics including a vintage gold DeArmond RC1100 (replated).  The pickup without installation would typically cost over $1000, so it's easy to imagine that it would cost at least $15,000 to have one like this built.

 

The action is flawless and the sound is rich and full from this parallel braced guitar.  Words are insufficient to describe this guitar.  Please watch for an upcoming video.

 

The finish shows some very minor, surface, hairline scratches that could certainly be buffed out.  Otherwise, it appears flawless.

 

Hardshell case included.

 

Shipping in the continental United States is included.  We ship worldwide.  Please contact us for international rates.
