Gibson Custom Shop BB King Lucille Legacy 2022 – Present – Transparent Ebony

$ 5925.00

I’m selling my Gibson Custom Shop Lucille Legacy guitar. My goodness is this a beautiful playing and sounding guitar. The varitone switch has made it my most versatile studio guitar as you can really dial it in however a song’s mix might need. There’s very light signs of play and this thing looks so good. I am not the greatest photographer, and the photos really don’t do the transparent finish justice. I bought this used from Chicago Music Exchange who did a a fantastic set up for me with Elixir 10’s. Hope this becomes your next favorite guitar! Comes with OHSC and the case candy pictured.

Here’s the spec’s:

A Tribute to the King

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.
