We are proud to offer this stunning archtop made by one of the top luthiers in the guitar business who is unfortunately no longer with us.  Mark Lacey has done work for a who's who list of pop, rock, and jazz guitarists and is reknown for his acoustic archtops.  This Premier is no exception, being among the finest archtops we have ever encountered.  The Premier model is the standard 17 inch Lacey archtop model and started at $13,000 new.  This one also has the upgrades of a custom color and electronics including a vintage gold DeArmond RC1100 (replated).  The pickup without installation would typically cost over $1000, so it's easy to imagine that it would have cost at least $15,000 to have one like this built.

The action is flawless and the sound is rich and full from this parallel braced guitar.  Words are insufficient to describe this guitar.  The playability is fantastic over the 25" scale.

The finish shows some very minor, surface, hairline scratches that could certainly be buffed out.  Otherwise, it appears flawless.
