Epiphone B.B. King Lucille

A Lovingly Crafted Tribute to a Blues Legend

  • Based on the famously named guitars of blues legend B.B. King, the Epiphone B.B. King Lucille was inspired by the various Gibson ES™ models he played over the years - all of which were named Lucille. Standout features that make this Lucille such a stunning guitar and loving tribute include gold hardware, Grover® Rotomatic® tuners, a Graph Tech® nut, ebony fretboard with pearloid block inlays, a brass truss rod cover with B.B. King’s name engraved on it, mother of pearl Lucille inlay on the headstock face, multi-ply binding on the body and headstock, a TP-6 tailpiece with fine tuners, and a semi-hollow body with a maple center block to reduce feedback. Unlike most semi-hollowbody guitars, the B.B. King Lucille’s top doesn’t have any f-holes; B.B. himself requested this feature to help further reduce the possibility of feedback. The electronics are equally impressive, with a six-position Varitone switch, a pair of Alnico Classic PRO™ humbucking pickups wired to CTS® potentiometers, and stereo and mono output jacks for maximum flexibility. An EpiLite™ case is also included.

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 Lucille without 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 fretboard has pearloid block inlays, a classic Epiphone Sloped Dovewing headstock, and a gold metal truss rod cover engraved “B.B. King.”

Rock Me Baby

Lucille’s biting tone comes from two Epiphone Alnico Classic™ humbuckers with gold covers framed by a classic multi-bound tortoise shell style pickguard with historic metal “E” insignia. An indelible part of King’s sound also comes from his subtle use of the Vari-tone ™, control which is identical in principle to the vintage models that King uses on stage.

The VariTone™ uses a six-way rotary switch which engages 5 pre-set notch filters and a bypass. In position one, the VariTone™ is completely bypassed. As you rotate the rotary switch into positions 2-6, the center frequency of the notch filter shifts from around 1.9kHz down to 130Hz, providing a player with a wide tonal palette unavailable on most other instruments. Positions 2 through 4 offer tonal shaping while still maintaining great clarity. Position 2, (5db at 1960 Hz) is B.B.’s favorite!

But keep turning and you’ll find Positions 5 and 6 shape-shift the Alnico Classic™ Humbuckers into a single-coil style pickup but without the thin quack usually associated with traditional single coil pickups. Add it all up and between the 6-position VariTone™ circuit and the 3-position toggle switch, you have 18 unique tones available.

Outputs include a 1/4” Mono output (both pickups or neck pickup in Stereo mode) and 1/4” Stereo (bridge pickup). Along with an ebony finish and gold hardware, the B. B. King Lucille also features the Grover® machine heads and Epiphone’s famous LockTone ™ Tune-o-matic bridge with a TP-6™ fine-tuning StopBar ™ tailpiece for precision intonation during bends.
