"A long-standing icon in the Gibson Memphis lineup, the B.B. King Lucille is based closely on the King of the Blues’ own guitar to deliver the look, feel and tone that helped create a legend."

Gibson's remake of B.B. King's famous guitar features an ES-355 style body with no F-holes, 490R and 490T humbuckers, and a slick ebony finish. The seller has stated that this guitar comes with its original hardshell case, as well as Certificate of Authenticity and all tags. It is in good condition, and has benefitted from a re-fret from an English luthier. Learn more about the model on Gibson's site here.
