Inspired by the ES models B.B. King played over the years, "Lucille" was his most prized guitar. Epiphone's take on the model absolutely nails the look, tone, and feel of the original itself. With a slick Ebony finish, this Epiphone B.B. King "Lucile" comes wired with two humbuckers, a six-position Varitone switch, and a TP-6 tailpiece. Note: The pickguard has been left off, but will sell with the guitar along with the original hardshell case. Please Note: There is a scuff in the finish on the black near the control cavity, there is also some light swirl scratching as well.
This is a consignment item and is sold as-is, no returns.
Here's what Epiphone has to say:
Based on the famously named guitars of blues legend B.B. King, the Epiphone B.B. King Lucille was inspired by the various Gibson ES™ models he played over the years - all of which were named Lucille. Standout features that make this Lucille such a stunning guitar and loving tribute include gold hardware, Grover® Rotomatic® tuners, a Graph Tech® nut, ebony fretboard with pearloid block inlays, a brass truss rod cover with B.B. King’s name engraved on it, mother of pearl Lucille inlay on the headstock face, multi-ply binding on the body and headstock, a TP-6 tailpiece with fine tuners, and a semi-hollow body with a maple center block to reduce feedback. Unlike most semi-hollowbody guitars, the B.B. King Lucille’s top doesn’t have any f-holes; B.B. himself requested this feature to help further reduce the possibility of feedback. The electronics are equally impressive, with a six-position Varitone switch, a pair of Alnico Classic PRO™ humbucking pickups wired to CTS® potentiometers, and stereo and mono output jacks for maximum flexibility.
