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.
