The legendary Gibson B.B. King Lucille returns to the ES lineup dressed in white, Alpine White to be exact. Featuring all of the high-end appointments that are fit for a King. Highlights include a custom B.B. King “signature” engraved bridge pickup cover, brass “Lucille” engraved truss rod cover, and “Crown” Mother of Pearl headstock inlay. Staying true to B.B. King’s original specs and tone, players will find a Stereo Varitone paired to Gibson 490R and 490T Humbucking pickups. The TP-6 Fine Tune Tailpiece, Mother of Pearl Full Block inlay fingerboard, and semi-hollowbody design, are all iconic in their own right. Lose the F-holes, and long live the King.
