Lucero Guitars Introduces the LC150 Series

The series features multi-ply real wood binding, three-ply rear marquetry strip, custom rosette, and gold hardware.

Thousand Oaks, CA (July 24, 2015) -- Lucero has introduced their new LC150 Series of classical guitars. These outstanding instruments combine beautiful, striped sapele mahogany back and sides with select, solid spruce tops to deliver unparalleled tone and projection. They also feature multi-ply real wood binding, three-ply rear marquetry strip, custom rosette, and gold hardware for a special touch of class and beauty. All LC150 Series guitars employ white ivoroid Regal tuners and come with D'Addario ProArte nylon strings.

There are two models in the series. The LC150S is a standard classical guitar, while the LC150SCE is acoustic-electric cutaway that provides unfettered access to the higher frets. The LC150SCE features Fishman's premium Sonicore Classical pickup and Clásica III onboard preamp system. The Clásica III offers an easy-to-read chromatic tuner with LED display and on/off button, and low-profile controls, including a volume knob, a phase button, and three bands of EQ.

At $199.99 for the LC150S and $269.99 for the LC150SCE (street), these finely crafted instruments are great values, providing professional-class tone and feel, as well as the beauty of premium wood.

Switching between contrasting reverb voices doubles the fun.

Smart, versatile, interactive and rangeful controls. Intuitive. Capable of great contrasts between A/B presets. Sturdy enclosure. Effective damping controls tame twee high-octave overtones.

Can’t switch reverb voices as you switch presets. Enclosure is big relative to depth of functionality. No-fun styling.

Fender and reverb go together like gumbo and rice. Historically, the spring tanks in the company’s amplifiers and tube-driven outboard units have defined the Fender reverb sound. But in 2018, when Fender released the Marine Layer digital reverb, it did not include a spring reverb emulation. The new Dual Marine Layer doesn’t have a spring emulation either. Instead, it’s brimming with sounds and functions well-suited for less retro-reverb expressions, including thick chorus textures and shimmer reverb, and has a soft-relay sustain switch that enables momentary creation of ambient beds. It’s also capable of some very classy, subdued reverb colors, plus a few that can effectively stand in for spring and plate sounds in a pinch.
