For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this Gibson Early 1927 Gibson Nick Lucas Special (FON 8644)
This guitar was made in April of 1927 and has the earliest factory order number for a Nick Lucas model on record. Features such as its natural finish and absence of an adjustable truss rod are seen on the earliest Gibson flat top guitars. Spruce top, mahogany sides and back, rosewood fingerboard and bridge. Gibson’s early “H” bracing pattern, 24” scale with 1 ¾” nut width, 4 5/8” sides, 10 ¼: upper bout and 13 ¾” lower bout.
The restoration, done in 2012 by luthier Jim Cunningham, required almost totally disassembling the instrument. Jim made a mould to keep the guitar from deforming during the restoration process. He was able to use all of the original body binding, although the fingerboard binding was only partially salvageable. Numerous top cracks required attention and as the finish was totaled, the entire guitar had to be refinished using nitro-cellulose lacquer.
The neck has a carbon fiber reinforcement rod installed. It has a set of new Waverley copy engraved tuners. The original Waverley tuners convey. It has a form-fitting custom made Cedar Creek hard-shell case.
