Music Man Luke (Vintage Tremolo)
All dj t said.

However, I tried to put the 89 acute instead of 85 and I t. The 89 duplicate a sound near the microphone 85 of origin, but when he splitt (thus equivalence of EMG SA) has no sound fishing and is completely ds balanced opinions of other microphones.

I think I understand the solution of the problem: there is no rglage the height of the pickups. So I stay with the original EMG set and met me perfectly.


Here we have a handle oil finish and fitted with a short scale.
Basically, a good glide, plays a very easy and you do not need to have thermowells to make carts.

Be careful not to play only on the LUKE because when we take another guitar, we realize that we must look a little further the!

Note the small hex screw that is between the bottom of the table and vibrato guitar, the latter serving tighten a little tremolo arm so that it stays in place.

For tuning, mine does not move at all, and makes me want to put on lock mcaniques my other guitars to solve a perpetual problem: the holding of agreement.

For what the violin, certainly the rest LUKE chre (thank you francaise taxes, it's true we never give enough ^^).
On the alternative hand we realize that not make fun of us birds'eye on the handle, rosewood fingerboard slectionn floating tremolo without being a floyd and my sense is of much better quality .dropoff window


I accuracy of all I am not a fan of Steve Lukather. (Dumoins, I start to like a few weeks ago)

I admit, it's my first amricaine. But not as much as I do not know the good violin US, who played on many models with friends.

At departure, i was pluttmtal (i was young), and after hard rock, then rock, a passage through the blues vintage 60s and ... I head to clean sounds.
Like what, despite the sad reputation they do to EMG (cold, dry, screaming, not personality), I am perfectly satisfied.

For sound, opt more for rock. Blues possible (although the real bluseux choose rather Fender or others).

Clean sounds, it's been great in the amplifiers that can output many (good hearers)

For Mtal ... please teens in crisis, this guitar can do so without complex, but rather take Ibanez, BC Rich, Jim Harley, Stagg or for those who have a little more ESP means.


I've had 3 years.
Guitar that plays very well and that sounds which fishing!
I bought it because I flash on it much earlier and also because I loved the sound EMG is sound, forgive me, very ballsy.
The price was getting scared, but alas with the life he was possible for me to buy it from me.
BMOL for some, for others Dise ... We do not fight with the sound. Can be thanks to EMG, here we have the whole of his violin instrument that is restitution.
One thing I like about EMG, it is either we take the kind alnicos 85 / SA or of ceramics 81 / S genre. All dpends if want the frequencies that are rather diffuse guitar "nergiques and warm" or "energetic" simply.

Here, even if Mr Lukhater slightly modified the SA, the sound is L and Introduced.

10/10 anywhere without hesitation.

freedave's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" the best guitar in the world?"

Music Man Luke (Vintage Tremolo)
All mentioned above. It's made in the USA of high quality.


Good. First, I come from the world of modern but classic guitar (Ibanez Jem in others) and I must say I've always hated the look of the Strat (how awful) because it's the guitar of everyman and that it sounds like everyone else ... or almost. Now, Luke is typically a super strat: we take the basic concept and pushes it to the top. At the end you have a beautiful and has the coolest race of the world comfortable light guitar, ultra,: everything goes on. Access to acute is also top although I would have liked 24 frets ...


The sound now. Then we will talk about the shortcomings of EMG: they are pretty bland in the clear. Perfect for funky rhythms - even in such sublime - but not at all suitable for vintage and dirty sounds. Perfect to accompany but not at all for soloing. Good that solote clear sound? I never but you never know ... The sound is very smooth, compressed, ultra defined (oh for sure should be able to play because we hear ALL) and more as it is right now, "guitar pros "you can expect the best of you on stage ... now go to the distortion and crunch sounds: I have no words to say. The sound is just huge! But in a good sense. We do not spray just what comes out of your fingers. The blues sounds are very realistic about the serious micro - Jimi out of there! - And you can not help but take on Jeff Beck bridge ... well, its a pro wherever you find you connect.


I caught this guitar on the net for 1000 euros. At this price, and even the double I would do this choice because this guitar will take you to a higher level in terms of play and precision. You feel compelled you to play better and clean. The vibrato is fabulous (which I am a fan of Floyd and bein honest is better), very long sustain and tessitura remains good throughout the race (this is a ca sign, Jem does not ring on boxes 15 is 24). And yet I plugged into a sound with just a Yamaha DG Stomp as preamp.
Voila, you have the topo of the perfect guitar whose only fault is precisely its perfection when we played it, we can turn back.

geolegx59's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Most excellent"

Music Man Luke (Vintage Tremolo)
Vibrato simple
22 frets
Option piezo
Optional color-keyed head
Type HSS, EMG active pickups
Name: Luke II piezo
Mechanical self-locking


I am an old "stratocastérien". But there, you cross another road to excellence.
I was confused a few days the handle V is extraordinary, but not polished. The palm of your hand slips faster (no hook) on a Start. It is ripe unintentionally. But we quickly took the habit, there are brands, and is therefore irreversible.
This is a guitar made - in my view - for small and medium-sized hands (Lukather has small hands).
Access to acute (frets 18 to 22) is somewhat more difficult than my Start.
Easy guitar to play sitting, standing, straight as an "i", sprawled on the sofa, etc.. Lightweight, balanced.


This guitar is really versatile, versatile. But like all the guitars, the importance of the amp and pedals is paramount. The EMG active have a big potato, they cross the racks with no problem.
Personally, I play on Egnater Rebel 30, or Bugera 333XL, Vox + disto Satchurator or AMT Du Hast, Boss DD3 delay.
This simple configuration and small enough to get a big sound.
I believe that today, no one disputes the high quality of active EMG pickups.


I do not touch my Stratocaster almost over ......
I still a critical issue on Luke: you can easily get out of the handle, it is narrow, and the frets chamfered a tad prematurely. I will correct when refrettage, but hey, it's not urgent. I'm just a scratch amateur.
Price aside, it's expensive, I model because the piezo is nice for sale occasion with this equipment. Without piezo, it runs in nine to about € 2100. At the same time, with only one guitar, you can do everything, so ...
However, there are models used around 1200/1300, and there should be no hesitation.
Last detail, the mechanical self-locking: I did not know, but I admit that it's wonderful. However, the view with lowering the age is not so easy to engage the upper strings in the tunnel reduced. Then the fifties and over, do not forget your glasses when changing strings ........
