Folks,

Here's a question for some of the Dylan fans on the forum.
Does anyone know what ever became of his Nick Lucas guitar?
I have never seen any kind of report about it being stolen or missing


It's known that he is a very private person and there isn't really any photos or records of Bob's (current) guitar collection .But I still think is is worth asking if anyone might have read an article or a magazine story related to the fate of that beautiful guitar

It was sold to the owner of Fretted Instruments in NYC from whom Dylan originally purchased the instrument.

If I recall the story correctly, the NL had originally belonged to the store owner's sister and was supposed to be a very near mint condition.

Jakob Dylan has it (or had it - he may have returned it to his father). Joe Henry talks about the guitar in our Fretboard Journal podcast #56 (starting around 9:30).

What year or phase are we in ?

I visited a friend 3 days ago and he had the full Basements Tapes CD box. 4 discs (if not more), 2 books etc.

The great pics of the Larson Bros Prairie State made me wonder 'bout the same thing.
There's particularly 1 shot where Dylan really looks at it - but where on earth is it now. . ?

If in a case under the big brass bed, isn't it time to re-feature it, Bob. .


Btw. there was also a photo showing Robertson behind a LG-something, , , Epiphone version.
Aha, , , as mentioned a couple of years ago, The Band's acoustics are more or less terrain vague for me.
You just can't keep coincidences down. .

I believe it was Paul Hostetter who was familiar with the guitar before Dylan bought it who recounted the story I had always heard. If I recall, he stated the guitar was not with Dylan in '66 because it was being repaired or something I guess Dylan having treated it none too gently.

I read that it died after Dylan packed a bunch of harmonicas on top of it in the case and put it in a plane hold.

I have heard both the story that its whereabouts are unknown and then a while back I heard the Joe Henry story as well. Henry is a major guitar geek and would know what he saw at Jakob's house. Unless he's just messing with everyone! 😉

Here is a link to a piece of Bob Dylan trivia you fans might just have missed, http://www.highway61...ldmag_FULL.pdf. This is one very interesting thread if you are a Dylan fan. I have been able to spend about a day following your links, and the links inside those links delving into the history I never knew about the man. Technology is a wonderful tool we are blessed to be able to enjoy.

Joe is a friend. I've spoken with him about the guitar.

I believe him. I enjoy his music and hearing him talk about guitars. 👍

Probably because he doesn't need all the pennies he would earn. [biggrin]

??? No disrespect to Henry. This was a comment on the financial structure of Spotify. The internet still doesn't get nuance.
