B.B. King will forever be the undisputed King of the Blues, and the Gibson Custom B.B. King Lucille Legacy is a testament to his everlasting impact on the genre. This semi-hollowbody electric guitar is a meticulous re-creation of B.B.'s famous custom-spec'd ES-355. It all starts with a 3-ply figured body — sans F-holes — with a head-turning transparent nitrocellulose lacquer finish. The Lucille Legacy's CustomBucker pickups deliver true-to-life vintage PAF tone, and its handwired harness vaunts CTS audio-taper pots and paper-in-oil Bumblebee caps. The Lucille Legacy's comfortable SlimTaper neck profile and 22-fret ebony fingerboard facilitate fluid string bending, shimmering vibrato, and effortless staccato picking. Visually speaking, the Lucille Legacy features attention-grabbing gold hardware, including a gold "B.B. King" engraved truss rod cover and a TP-6 tailpiece with fine tuners. You also get split block mother-of-pearl fingerboard inlays and stunning multi-ply binding throughout. If your current semi-hollowbody electric leaves you feeling blue — or if the proverbial thrill is indeed gone — take a ride with the B.B. King Lucille Legacy. It's one of the most inspiring guitars you'll ever play.
