Description

B.B. Kings Lucille Electric Signature Semi Hollow Guitar

The B Gibson .B. King Lucille Semi-Hollow pays tribute to Gibson Memphis the late blues guitarist and singer in the form of one of the most striking electric Signature guitars in the world. The legendary semi-resonance guitar is based on the ES-355TD-SV's design with dual 490R and 490T Humbucker -equipment, Stereo -output and Varitone switch, but without classic F-holes and brings some more interesting details with it.

490R u. 490T Humbucker

For classic '57 sounds the B.B. King Lucille was equipped with a 490R Humbucker on the neck and a 490T Humbucker in Bridge position. The two pickups deliver a warm Vintage tone with a little more power in the high mids and powerful character in the distorted metier.

Varitone Switches

B.B. King's distinctive sound always found the right treble roll-off in his Lucille thanks to various capacitors switchable via a 6-way Varitone switch, which were then conventionally regulated via the tone potentiometers for both pickups. The Gibson Memphis Lucille provides the guitarist with a variety of sounds and sound patterns from muted Woman Tone to transparent Treble sound. Last but not least, the signals of both cartridges can be used separately thanks to separate Stereo outputs.

TP-6 Stopbar & Grover mechanics

In addition to the proven Tune-o-Matic bridge, the B.B. King Lucille uses a TP-6 Tailpiece with fine tuners. These have a more precise transmission ratio than the Tulip tuners Grover at the other end of the headstock and allow precise tuning. All Hardware parts of the Lucille are gold-plated.
