Lucero Unveils Classical and Acoustic-Electric Models

Both of these nylon-stringed instruments are carefully inspected and set up at Lucero's U.S. facilities.

Thousand Oaks, CA (July 18, 2016) -- Lucero, makers of finely crafted classical guitars for beginners and expert players alike, has introduced two new additions to its growing line of premium instruments: the LC230S classical guitar and the LC235SCE acoustic-electric classical guitar.

Lucero's new LC230S features the exotic touch of bubinga wood on back and sides, combined with a solid red cedar top for a delicate, warm tone and stunningly good looks. The meticulously sculpted, one-piece mahogany neck is finished with a classic Indian rosewood fingerboard for the ultimate in playability, while the matching rosewood headstock overlay and all-wood rosette completes the guitar's definitive high-end look and feel.

The new LC235SCE model begins with the same gorgeous solid red cedar top, adding high-end zebrawood back and sides for strikingly good looks and a crisp, assertive tone. The integrated Fishman Sonocore bridge pickup and Clasica III preamp enables you to connect to an amplifier or PA system with complete control over volume and EQ. The Clásica III also 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.

As with its sibling LC230S, the LC235SCE sports a meticulously carved one-piece mahogany neck that delivers comfort and playability to any guitarist's hands, and the comfortable Venetian cutaway makes it easy to get to the highest frets.

Like all Lucero classical guitars, both of these nylon-stringed instruments are outfitted with D'Addario Pro Arté nylon strings, and carefully inspected and set up at Lucero's US facilities to deliver the finest in tone and playability.

At $299 for the LC230S and $399 for the LC235SCE (street), these expertly crafted instruments provide professional-class tone and feel, as well as the beauty of premium wood. They're in stock now at Guitar Center retail stores and are available for immediate shipment from Musician's Friend and

Gibson 1960 Les Paul 0 8145 is from the final year of the model’s original-production era, and likely from one of the later runs.

The story of 1960 Gibson Les Paul 0 8145—a ’burst with a nameplate and, now, a reputation.

These days it’s difficult to imagine any vintage Gibson Les Paul being a tough sell, but there was a time when 1960 ’bursts were considered less desirable than the ’58s and ’59s of legend—even though Clapton played a ’60 cherry sunburst in his Bluesbreakers days. Such was the case in the mid 1990s, when the family of a local musician who was the original owner of one of these guitars walked into Rumble Seat Music’s original Ithaca, New York, store with this column’s featured instrument.
