Overview

This economical Epiphone ES-style semi-hollowbody is an authentic re-issue based on his original Gibson BB King signature guitar, nicknamed 'Lucille'.

A true testament to a guitar legend

BB King is perhaps the most influential guitarist of the last 5 decades when it comes to the Blues. Renowned for rocking a Gibson ES-335 for the majority of his hit recordings, Gibson dedicated a signature B.B King model in 1980. Gibson also made a special run of 80 'Lucille' guitars in 2005, to celebrate his 80th Birthday, the first prototype of which he used from that point onwards.

The Epiphone 'Lucille' faithfully captures the essence of these original Gibson models in a more affordable package. King’s singular tone has everything you’d want to hear in electric blues guitar—a bell-like ring with a hint of overdrive, soaring highs and gritty lows, and all driven home by King’s mighty left hand tremolo.

With hits like 'Rock Me Baby', 'Sweet Little Angel', 'Sweet Sixteen', and 'The Thrill Is Gone', King put the blues on the Top 40 charts, made himself and Lucille household names. He became the first blues artist signed to a major label, and with his singular vocal and guitar style, was an inspiration to a mighty generation of blues and rock artists including Otis Rush, Albert King, Buddy Guy, Michael Bloomfield, Duane Allman, and Magic Sam.

The Epiphone B. B. King Lucille was designed by B. B. King himself and puts all the tone and nuance of King’s own favourite guitar in your hands. Unfortunately, after passing away at 89 in 2015, these great guitars have become a true testament to his legacy and the perfect way to treasure his sacred guitar tone.
