Art, Engineered for Music

Lucem Guitars are hand made in Cumbria, England.


Harnessing innovation and high craftsmanship to successfully combine left field design and classic retro styling with modern, high end features and performance - These pieces offer a rare opportunity; as well as being inspired by and used by; they have been designed in conjunction with some of the most visionary musicians in modern guitar music.


Not just replicas or re-issues churned out on some production line; every instrument is meticulously presided over by Luthier and Engineer Graham Skimming in his purpose built studio on the Western edge of the Cumbrian Lake District. Only the finest quality materials and components are even considered.

Only a handful of guitars are made each year and every one is treated individually; with no two instruments ever being exactly the same. An extensive range custom options also provides the customer with the chance to project their own vision.

Stirring echoes of the glory days of the 1960's and the 1990’s which spawned the emergence of some of the most important guitar based music in history; these instruments will be sure to influence new sonic exploration, as well as calling to mind those special events which first instilled inspiration.
