What Haworth Guitars say:
The Epiphone B.B.King Lucille Electric Guitar is an awesome Signature electric guitar by Epiphone.
At Haworth Guitars we love this Epiphone BB King Lucille Guitar's smooth hard maple neck, 22 medium jumbo frets, gold hardware and the smooth-sounding Classic Alnico Humbucker pickups which give Lucille that classic BB King tone.
What Epiphone has to say:
B. B. King Lucille When B.B. King made his first recordings for Sam Phillips’ Memphis Recording Services, King was initially known as a talented vocalist and in fact didn’t always play lead guitar on his early records. But that would all change by the mid-‘50s as King and his guitar, nicknamed Lucille, became the voice of the blues.
With hits like “Rock Me Baby,” “Sweet Little Angel,” “Sweet Sixteen,” and “The Thrill Is Gone,” King put the blues on the Top 40 charts, made himself and Lucille household names, became the first blues artist signed to a major label, and with his singular vocal and guitar style, was an inspiration to a mighty generation of blues and rock artists including Otis Rush, Albert King, Buddy Guy, Michael Bloomfield, Duane Allman, and Magic Sam.
King’s singular tone has everything you’d want to hear in electric blues guitar—a bell-like ring with a hint of overdrive, soaring highs and gritty lows, and all driven home by King’s mighty left-hand tremolo.
The Epiphone B. B. King Lucille was designed by B. B. King himself and puts all the tone and nuance of King’s own favourite guitar in your hands. As with all Epiphones, Lucille comes with our Limited Lifetime Guarantee and 24/7/365 Gibson Customer Service.
