News Gibson B.B. King Lucille Limited

For Christmas 2010, Gibson Custom introduces a Limited Edition of Gem Series B.B. King Lucille guitars,

 

Based on the specs of Gibson Custom’s B.B. King Lucille model, the Gem Series includes five new finishes, produced in 25 guitars of each color: Sapphire, Amethyst, Diamond, Ruby, and Emerald.

 

Like the ES-355, these guitars are made to Gibson’s classic double-cutaway semi-hollow design, but without the f-holes of traditional models, a modification originally made at the request of King himself to help cut unwanted feedback. A pair of  alnico-magnet humbucking pickups translates playing nuances through the tone switching and stereo output capability on this model (also mono capable), while a modified hardware set completes the package.

 

An ebony fingerboard with large mother-of-pearl block inlays, gold-plated hardware, and the custom mother-of-pearl “B.B. King” and crown headstock inlays complete the picture.

 

Pricing

List price is $5,175.

 

Each Gem Series B.B. King Lucille comes with a Gibson Custom hardshell case, a special color-matched Certificate of Authenticity, a The Best of B.B. King Christmas Collection CD, and The B.B. King Treasures: Photos, Mementos & Music from B.B. King’s Collection, a 160-page hardcover book. You can reserve yours now at www.musiciansfriend.com/gemseries.
