The Gibson Lucille BB King Signature is a rare and coveted guitar, originally produced in 1998. This iconic instrument, created by Gibson to the exact specifications of the legendary B.B. King, is a testament to craftsmanship and attention to detail.
Draped in a sleek black finish, this Lucille model is a striking and elegant guitar. It takes inspiration from the ES 355 but distinguishes itself by omitting the F-holes, giving it a unique appearance and a different tonal character.
One of the standout features of this particular Lucille is its neck. Unlike later models, this guitar boasts a genuine ebony fingerboard, providing a luxurious and smooth playing surface. The fingerboard is adorned with mother of pearl block inlays, which not only enhance the guitar's visual appeal but also serve as useful markers for navigating the fretboard.
The hardware on this Lucille is resplendent in gold, giving the guitar a regal and distinctive look. Gold accents include the truss rod cover, fine-tuning tailpiece, and other hardware components.
In terms of electronics and controls, this Lucille offers a versatile array of options. It is equipped with two volume controls, two tone controls, and a 3-way pickup selector switch, allowing you to fine-tune your sound with precision. Additionally, it features the Vari-tone switch, which provides a wide range of tonal possibilities, making it a versatile instrument capable of producing a broad spectrum of sounds.
