Adapted from the top of the range ES-355, the B.B. King Lucille is far from new, but gets a makeover at NAMM 2015 with a gold B.B. King engraved truss rod cover, gold Grover 102GKM tulip tuners, a full block-inlay fretboard, slightly overwound 490R and 490T humbuckers, no f-holes, 6-way VariTone switch, stereo output, and TP-6 tailpiece.
Finished in Enbony, the B.B. King Lucille also features a maple/poplar/maple body, 3-piece maple neck with traditional ‘C’-profile, Richlite fingerboard with block inlays, mother-of-pearl Gibson and ‘Lucille’ logos, gold plated Tune-o-Matic die-cast alloy bridge. Includes a black hardshell case.
