Appointments on the striking limited-edition semi-hollow offering include a custom B.B. King “signature” engraved bridge pickup cover, brass “Lucille” engraved truss rod cover and “Crown” Mother of Pearl headstock inlay.
True to King’s original specs and tone, the guitar boasts Gibson 490R and 490T humbuckers along with a Stereo Varitone setup.
Other features include a TP-6 Fine Tune Tailpiece, Mother of Pearl Full Block inlays on a rounded “C” neck, gold hardware and Multi-ply Bound Tortoiseshell pickguard.
“Throughout musical history, there has never been a guitar associated with one musician quite like blues legend B.B. King and his beloved Lucille,” said Cesar Gueikian, Chief Merchant Officer of Gibson.
“Gibson is proud to partner with the B.B. King Family Trust to bring this special limited edition of the iconic ‘Lucille’ to guitar players and fans. Today we are building on our legacy of craftsmanship and innovation as Gibson continues to shape the sounds of generations for years to come.”
The new Lucille is being offered for $5,499.
