JOE DOE BY VINTAGE
PRESENTS…
‘LUCKY BUCK’ ELECTRIC GUITAR’Leslie ‘Lucky Buck’ Coal
topped the Billboard Country Music charts in 1952 with his heartbreak inspired
single, “Whisky 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 “Whisky 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.’

Strictly limited to 100 pieces worldwide!

P90 STYLE NECK
PICKUPJoe Doe and Vintage based the ‘Lucky Buck’ around
a double bound American Alder body, for singing sustain and well-rounded
resonance. There’s even an exquisite ‘Saguaro’ cactus F-hole to really let that
country sound ring out loud. Coal was best known for playing his sunburst
version of this guitar live on stage, although a black version was made just
for his guest appearance on the ‘Saddle Up and Ride!’ TV Christmas Special in
1978.

There’s a Wilkinson WTB 3 saddle design down by
the bridge section, a tried and tested way to deliver perfect intonation and
tonal transfer. As reliable as a Texas sunset, you’ll find a custom designed
Joe Doe neck P90 style pickup and a hotter-than-a-branding-iron bridge pickup!

LOCKING
MACHINE HEADSAt the other end of the ‘Lucky Buck’, you’ll find a one-piece
Hard Rock maple neck, featuring a wonderfully comfortable classic Vintage ‘soft
C’ profile, and a matching maple fingerboard. Firm and reassuring in the hand,
like a well-worn saddle pommel.

You like pedal steel bends right? Cool, then do
your thing and let the Wilkinson ‘WJ55 E-Z Lok’ machine heads bring you back in
tune. The Lucky Buck is laid out with 22 medium profile frets, with a 43mm
Graphtech nut. Smooth and friction free, like a tumbleweed blowing across the Chihuahuan
Desert

A True Collectors Guitar

The ‘Lucky
Buck’ from Joe Doe and Vintage is one of the most unique guitars we’ve seen in
quite some time. A guitar with a story as unique as your own, almost every inch
of this guitar is screaming to tell you it’s story! From the extremely cool
floral scratchguard, to the stunning fingerboard decals , this is a true
collector’s guitar. Joe Doe and Vintage even included a tough, hard-wearing
tweed-styled hard case to keep old ‘Lucky Buck’ safe, and hidden away from the
harsh Desert sun!
