Erlewine Lucy

Lucy is a very special addition to the collection. Dan built the original Lucy for blues great Albert King in 1970, and soon afterwards turned his attention to repairing rather than building. Recently Dan was bitten again by the "Build Bug" and agreed to build this exquisite duplicate. Amazingly, Dan kept the extra Black Walnut from the batch he used to make Albert's in storage all these years, and used it to craft this Lucy. Like Albert's, all binding is alternating layers of Flame Maple & Rosewood; Fret position inlay is Mother of Pearl with Green Heart Abalone on a Curly Brazilian fingerboard, Burl Walnut headstock overlay with Indian Rosewood pickguard.
