‘Lucky Buck’, owned by Leslie Coal
Leslie ‘Lucky Buck’ Coal topped the Billboard Country Music charts in 1952 with his heartbreak inspired single, “Whiskey for Breakfast”. Flushed with sudden success, Coal signed numerous endorsement deals, the most lucrative of which was a contract to become a regular fixture on the WHB national radio show Giddy Up Y’all!. Coal’s initial role on the morning show was to sing cover songs of the day, but due to ‘lifestyle difficulties’, he was relegated to singing jingles for local businesses. After a few unhappy years, Coal ended his contract with WHB and decided to return to his country music roots. “I’m done singing about washing powders and car dealerships. From now on I’m all about the music, not the money.”
For decades, Coal toured and played to small audiences in the southern states, his meagre earnings barely covering his gas and living expenses. However his luck changed in 2005 when “Whiskey for Breakfast” was sampled in East Coast rapper Kalamitee’s track “Get Drunk”, leading to substantial royalty payments and a renewed appreciation of Coal’s original country music.
Body: Semi-hollow, double bound American Alder body with unique “Saguaro” cactus F-hole to let the country sound ring out. Coal is best known for playing the sunburst version of his guitar live, though a black version was made for his guest appearance on the ‘Saddle Up and Ride!’ TV Christmas Special in 1978.
Bridge: The Wilkinson WTB 3 saddle design provides a tried and tested way to deliver perfect intonation and tone transfer. As reliable as a Texas sunset.
Pickups: Custom designed Joe Doe neck P90 style pickup and a hotter-than-a-branding-iron bridge pickup.
Controls: Single Volume and Tone controls with three way pickup selector switch.
Machine heads: You like pedal steel bends? Great, then do your thing and let the Wilkinson WJ55 E-Z Lok machine heads bring you back to tune.
Neck: One piece hard rock Maple neck, shaped into a classic Vintage ‘soft C’ profile. Firm and reassuring in the hand, like a well worn saddle pommel. Lignum Rosa fingerboard.
Frets: 22 Medium profile frets.
Nut: 43mm Graphtech nut, smooth and friction free, like a tumbleweed blowing across the Chihuahuan Desert.
Headstock: Unique Vintage Joe Doe “Lucky Buck” headstock design.
Case: Joe Doe luxury hardshell case with case candy.
Certificate: Certificate of authenticity included.
ProShop Set-Up: Each guitar is individually set-up by the Vintage ProShop team.
Limited Edition 1 of 100 'Lucky Buck' is an original Vintage® guitar, designed and created by Joe Doe Guitars and the UK Vintage design team.
