The 'King of the Blues' - B.B King graced us with some of the most iconic guitar tones ever produced, courtesy of his signature Gibson ES-355. Nicknamed 'Lucille', Gibson issed the first signature models in 1980, and has been refined over the course of the last 3 decades resulting in this superb 2016 model.
Based closely on his specifications, the Gibson Lucille features a semi-hollow, maple-ply body. True to King's personal preference, the 2016 Lucille does away with the 'F-Shaped' sound holes found on traditional ES-355s (he was known to stuff them to avoid unwanted feedback!).
A TP-6 fine-tune tailpiece ensures your performance will be in tune and stable. The combination of 490R and 490T humbucker pickups deliver vintage blues tone, modelled very closely on the '57 classics found on countless Gibson hollowbodys over the years. A six-position stereo Varitone circuit offers singing blues tone through rolling off selected frequencies.
The all-gold hardware looks high class against Lucille's smooth cherry finish. Multi-ply binding seductively wraps the entirety of the instrument. Even the tortoise-type pickguard is outlined in binding. And mother-of-pearl block inlays are expertly set into the sleek and jet black Richlite fingerboard.
