�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.
