"The team at Lucid are turnkey visionaries. Able to take an idea and collaborate alongside the client to elevate it, making it better and stronger in the process. I loved working with LUCID on this project"
Mark Finkelpearl, Owner
- Finkelpearl Vector Product Design
Mark Finkelpearl chose to work with Lucid on the first product for his new company because when he spoke with us we got where he was coming from.
Not having worked on a guitar before was not a handicap for Lucid. In fact it was an advantage as it allowed us to bring a fresh perspective to the industry with new ideas and innovations.
After some extensive research and inspiration gathering, both Mark and Lucid agreed that the new design we wanted to create wasn’t going to be radical. Guitar players don’t like massive change. Instead it was going to be about subtlety, sexiness and sophistication, the 3 S’s.
Taking a classic jazzmaster shape as the basis for our new design and a completely new pick up configuration, Lucid worked on designs that evoked the three S’s. The innovations came in terms of some interesting surfacing, color break ups, and the light, modern feel of the guitar.
The Vector went on sale in 2012 after a prototype was sucessfully tested on tour.
