Lucca LS1C ‘Gary Benson’ Archtop Electric Guitar Natural, 2002

Lucca LS1C 'Gary Benson' Archtop Electric Guitar Natural, 2002

The Lucca LS1C is a standard model for Ron Lucca, who has been building guitars and working with musical instruments including high end pianos since 1969. The late Toronto Jazz Guitarist Gary Benson had an LS1C built for himself. This guitar was ordered with options to replicate it. Ronald Lucca built his first classical guitar in 1969, and the next year entered an apprenticeship at the Steinway Piano Company in Philadelphia. He worked with pianos for some time, and went back to University ultimately earning a Masters in Music Therapy from Temple University. He also became the official supplier for Ebony Benedetto tailpieces and finger-rests.
