SOLD - Gibson BB King Signature Lucille 2001

Shipping calculated at checkout.

No sales tax for customers outside California!

Here we have a very, very clean Gibson BB King Signature Lucille.

The Varitone switch gives a ton of options on what is already an incredibly versatile guitar.

The sealed top and block down the middle of the body add to the uniqueness of this guitar versus other similar Gibson hollowbodies, including increased stability and control over feedback.

The guitar is all original with perhaps the exception of the stopbar tailpiece.  We've seen this guitar out there for sale and as sold items with both this and Gibson's TP-6 tailpiece, the one with the useless micro-tuners.  I prefer this stopbar as it is lighter in weight, and who uses those tuners anyway?

Comes with a nice, clean Gibson case, likely the original.

Fully checked in our shop to make sure that the truss rod is good, all parts are checked, etc.  Frets are barely worn.  No issues, repairs or changes.
