Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Ball Family Reserve Luke Electric Guitar:

I took a chance with the EMG pickup arrangement having never played them. I would highly recommend them at least as arranged and designed into the Luke.

Best I ever had

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Ball Family Reserve Luke Electric Guitar:

As the other reviewer said, this guitar is just amazing. Although you may want to try out the other musicman that Petrucci designed, it may suit your style better. Luke is for the rocker, but even the clean sound is gorgeous. Once you plug it into an amp the experience is awesome, can't stop playing. Beats other guitars in this price range, some of them are not even close to this work of art.
