This 2013 Fairbanks Nick Lucas comes to us from its original owner, and it's never been on the market before.
Why We Love This
This Fairbanks Nick Lucas is, essentially, Dale Fairbanks' standard 13-fret Nick Lucas, but constructed with Brazilian Rosewood back and sides. The neck is a slim carve, with a tangible V profile.
It presents beautifully in person, but it's been played steadily for 9 years and does sport a few little dings on its top. There's a repaired side crack (treble side) near the neck heel -- a byproduct of side bending, which the builder repaired when the instrument was being put together.
Tonally, this is a huge-sounding, warm, and rich guitar with excellent sustain and "woodiness" of sound. Anyone interested in Dale's guitars will likely be in love at first strum.
