The Thrill Is Back
Lucille’s ES-style body shape features a maple top and body and is constructed without f- holes. King has always preferred ES style guitars, most prominently the ES-355. To get the tone and volume combination that he wanted for his sound, King found he was often on the verge of feedback. His solution was to ask the Kalamazoo factory to make a version of Lucillewithout f-holes.
King’s new Epiphone design incorporates three decades of refinements with stunning results. The hand-set 24.75” scale hard maple neck has a 1.68” nut with a SlimTaper™ “C” shape, perfect for chording or solos. Lucille’s rosewood fretboard has pearloid block inlays, a classic Epiphone Sloped Dovewing headstock, and a gold metal truss rod cover engraved “B.B. King.”
