Epiphone B. B. King Lucille
This guitar was made in Korea, though Epiphone is originally an American company. This guitar is equipped with Varitone humbuckers, which are interesting because of their ability to switch from single-coil sounds to humbucker sounds. The guitar has 4 knobs, two each for volume and tone. There is a 3-way pickup selector switch. The guitar has a maple body and neck, and the fretboard is made of rosewood and has 22 frets. It has a TP-6 tremolo piece. This guitar is notable for being a "replica" of blues legend BB King's guitar "Lucille".

UTILIZATION

This guitar plays pretty well. I do enjoy the sounds I get out of it sometimes. It's made for blues playing, and I must say that playing that genre is definitely easier on this guitar than intense Jazz or country. For some reason moving around on complex chords has been difficult for me on this guitar. I haven't had a problem with ergonomics, the thing isn't too heavy or light. It's easy to reach the frets and hit those top notes because of the cutaway on the lower part of the neck.

SOUNDS

I feel like I was expecting too much out of this guitar. When you claim to be based off of BB King's famous guitar, you should come correct at the end of the day. While I did think that the pickups on this guitar were cool because you could switch from single-coil to humbucker instantly, I was hoping that the pickups themselves would sound better. Neither tone sounds great (though the humbuckers are better). I was also thinking for some reason that even though the guitar is based on a Blues legend, it wouldn't be inconceivable to play Jazz or Country on it. But I don't think that the tone is particularly great for anything other than blues, and even then, it's not amazing in any way. Mostly bland, not enough raw feeling coming out of the guitar.

OVERALL OPINION

I think that this guitar is mainly made to capitalize on BB King's name. It's not that much of a quality guitar. It's also not that expensive, even new, so I guess that's why it isn't too impressive. I guess if you're a blues fan who just started playing, it might make a good purchase. I wouldn't recommend this to an advanced or intermediate player though.

PEERLESSMAN's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" fo .. or .. formidable ..."

Epiphone B. B. King Lucille
UNSUNG Made in Korea ..
it is a 335 ES without gills.
see technical config in previous opinions.
Wholesale 2 humbuckers, a varitone 6 position selector 3 positions, 2 volumes, 2 tones
Two outputs (stereo)

UTILIZATION

quick and pleasant handle,
good ergonomics, a bit heavy but well balanced.
Very easy access to acute.
The sounds are fo midables hor ...

SOUNDS

The varitone can rub a result panel styles: Rockabilly, jazz, latin, blues, metal to see (by changing the pickups probably) Country ... but it's not my cup of tea.
Currently, I play on a minibrain polytone for jazz and variety.
I also use my Hot Rod for light and crunchy sounds.
I tried the guitar on two old Roland amps (60 cubic chorus and JC 80)

OVERALL OPINION

I did that for a few days.
I have several very different from each other guitars, including LP STUDIO, TV and thinline strat squier classic vibes, several guitars for blues jazz.Bon we even talk about it, it is obviously his favorite thing.
Some say that electronics is low end. Maybe I'll change the pickups to give it a little more value, but we'll see.
Plug in stereo on two amps or enjoy two entries polytone sticking a distortion pedal on an entry and distortion on the mic of choice is controlled with the switch ... yum ... yum .... a treat.
It is ultra poyvalente and reminds me of my two Japanese pro aria TS 600 I've never been able to sell so it was amazing I have given to my daughter.
I should have bought a "lucille" earlier.
Here sorry for being so long maia it's worth.

Yoyothebest's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" exeptionnelle, not least"

Epiphone B. B. King Lucille
Korean manufacturing
Report excellent price / quality

Grover tuners and tailpiece bridge with stop bar Tune'o'Matic fine tune!
Not very easy to use for changing strings, but instead, gives it to keep the agreement, so that the more

The surprising Varitone is a tool, you can go from a blues guitar, a telecaster pretend (for those who love)
But be careful, she Lots of sustain, exeptionnelle for blues, to rock I'm more qualified to do with time.
Potentiomettre the volume is less usable than standard models

For wiring and other components, I find nothing wrong, even on the original strings, they are quite good.
I wanted to change the pickups cons of Gibson Classic 57 +, well, when I connected, OUHAAAAA with my spider jam line 6 that makes him

The neck is super nice

It's a Gibson, like all Epiphones!

quality is to go

Beware though, it must quickly get scratched

Sounds harsh environment but with Lots of sustain (this may offend)

My preferences settings:

positions 2 and 3

Global Opinion
I use it for a week.

I hesitated with a sheraton II (which is extremely good guitar, if you change the pickups)
In some detail, it is a copy of the Lucille

When I play it, I feel that BB King is there (obviously not as good)

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use, this is not a highway as my ARIA
but it does not have the same utility
I still have the lower strings

SOUNDS

Blues, rock (to do with time)

OVERALL OPINION

A buy if you want a guitar blues and '60s rock
Otherwise, choose a sheraton 2, or another model.
