Gibson 355 BB King Lucille, July 31, 2003, made in the Gibson Nashville Shop.

Excellent condition with original case. See Detailed Photos.

Plays extremely well with a very nice Ebony Fretboard and original electronics.

For sale in the Continental US only, thank you.

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.  

No f-holes, just like BB’s To combat feedback on stage, B.B. King has long specified his guitars without the traditional f-holes Regal looksB.B.’s preferred high-gloss Ebony finish in nitrocellulose lacquer gives this artist guitar an elegantly formal appearance Gold-plated hardware Gibson’s top-of-the-line semis have traditionally worn gold-plated hardware to declare their status Elegant binding Multi-ply binding on the body’s top and back enhance its custom-grade looks Classic block inlays Large mother-of-pearl blocks tie the B.B. King Lucille to great ES-355s of the past Varitone tone switching With five capacitor networks plus bypass, the Varitone lends superb sonic versatility Fine-tuning tailpiece TP-6 makes quick midriff tune ups a breeze Great humbucking tone Made with Alnico magnets like the great PADs, with a slightly overwound bridge pickup for scorching leads
