Epiphone | B.B. King "Lucille" ES-335
B.B. played many guitars in his lifetime, but he gave them all one name: Lucille. Epiphone remembers this singular monicker with the new Epiphone B.B. King "Lucille," an ES-335 inspired by King's originals, finished in Ebony.
As the story goes, King was playing a dancehall in Twist, Arkansas, when two men began to fight, tipping over a flaming barrel of kerosene providing the building's heat. The floor caught fire and King fled, leaving behind his beloved Gibson. King ran back in to save it. He later learned that the two men were fighting over a woman. Her name was Lucille.
The Epiphone B.B. King "Lucille" pays tribute to this legendary moment and the decades of brilliance the followed with gold hardware, Grover® Rotomatic® tuners, GraphTech® nut, ebony fingerboard, pearloid block inlays, and signature features like a brass truss rod cover with custom engraving, mother of pearl Lucille headstock inlay, and a semi-hollow body with a maple center block and no f-holes, a detail B.B. himself added as a measure of protection against feedback.
Of course, there's also a six-position Varitone switch and dual Alnico Classic PROTM humbucking pickups with CTS® potentiometers and stereo and mono output jacks for that classic "Blues Boy" tone.
