    L3 Annivesary

    In the spring of 2012 I saw a picture of new Luke 3 Rosewood Neck / Olive Gold and showed it to my wife and said "here's my next guitar".

    Several weeks afterwards I went to a pet store with my daughter to get pet food and decided to swing into my local guitar center that was nearby on the way home and as luck or fate would have it - there it was!!! That was on June 23, 2012 !!! Instant bond, that guitar has since seen over 125 gigs with me!!!

    Feel very luck for certain. Its actually more than that because although the L3 HH & HSS are my favorite to gig with, I do play the others at times also. This band has been together for 13+ years. We had been averaging 50 per year until 2019 when it and we slowed down. Of course 2020 has almost been a bust.

    Happy anniversary! When I heard Luke had agreed to make a guitar with two passive humbuckers and a rosewood neck, I was sold! I told my wife the same thing! Congrats!
