Gibson Custom Shop B.B. King Lucille Legacy Transparent Ebony 8.13 #CS201975

Serial Number: #CS201975

The legendary Gibson B.B. King Lucille Legacy returns to the Custom Shop ES™ lineup as a core Artist model. Lucille features all of the high-end appointments that are fit for a King. Highlights include gold hardware, including a gold “B.B. King” engraved truss rod cover and a TP-6 tailpiece with fine tuners. A “Lucille” mother of pearl inlay adorns the headstock, and the ebony fretboard features split block mother of pearl inlays. A mono Varitone switch, along with four audio taper CTS® potentiometers and paper-in-oil Bumblebee capacitors, are paired to Gibson Custombucker humbucking pickups. The legendary semi-hollowbody design remains, but the f-holes are gone, in keeping with B.B. King’s personal preferences. The top, back, and sides of the body feature stunning figured maple veneer, which is visible through the Transparent Ebony nitrocellulose lacquer finish, making Lucille a very special guitar that’s fit for blues royalty.
