The Lucca Jazstra is my answer for the professional jazz/rock/studio guitarist after 40 years of playing and building guitars. I made it for the player who wants a guitar that performs and sounds like a jazz box and a hot rock guitar all in one.
My Jazstra is a thru body design made of beautiful flamed maple with fine strips of mahogany. I built a prototype without the mahogany separators and found the sound to sharp and hard. The mahogany softens the sound and enhances the sound and feel of the vibrating tone.
The solid one piece neck and body design delivers great sustain and sensation. Each note can be felt along the neck and body because each note is one uninterrupted vibration reacting with the next from end to end of the instrument.
The necks heel design blends smoothly into the body so that there is no obstacle for my thumb or palm to run into.
I made my Jazstra with Gibson Classic 57's and a Schaller roller bridge/tailpeice. The inset bridge delivers more intensity to the over all sound.
I installed gold Grover Minis.
My Jazstra is a custom instrument and so will yours be. You choose what parts you want and I will build you a Jazstra you will never replace.
I am building myself and Jazstra 8 string next.
Thanks for coming to see my website. Please look around.
The Jazstra is my idea of a comfortable, beautiful solid body guitar feel, sound and look
