This 2001 Gibson Lucille is a unique and special piece.  

First you'll note that the fretboard is inlaid from the factory with BB's signature, something you seldom see on Custom Shop models from the era.  

The guitar is also hand-signed by BB. 

Included documentation shows that the guitar was ordered specifically by Tommy Peters, owner of BB King's Blues Club in Memphis, Tennessee for a charity auction.  The auction raised funds for the Orpheum Theatre, also in Memphis.

The guitar has seen little to no play, as evidenced by the extremely clean frets.  It does play well and sound fantastic, however.  It is all original with no changes, repairs or issues.  We re-strung and dialed the guitar in and checked the truss rod to make sure there is room for future neck relief adjustment.

The original hardshell case is included.  There is also an auction results list that will be  posted soon as it was missed in our process.

A beautiful and highly collectable guitar.
