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. An EpiLite™ case is also included.
