Music Man

A broader, more defined tone while retaining the familiar shape and feel of the original Luke model.

Guitarist Steve Lukather has been an endorser of Ernie Ball Music Man guitars for years with his own signature models that are no different than the ones he plays on stage. The Music Man Luke Signature LIII HSS Electric Guitar represents Steve's evolution towards the perfect performance guitar. The LIII features a larger Alder body, (3% larger profile than the standard model Luke guitar), 22 fret full rosewood neck and new passive Dimarzio pickups with custom Music Man active preamp. Electronics include a dual Humbucking (our product # H80760) or H-S-S pickup configuration (shown here), volume control and a passive tone control with a new Push/Push switch for an adjustable 12 db Volume boost. Similar in style, the Luke III exhibits a broader, more defined tone while retaining the familiar shape and feel as the original Luke model. Other standard features include a Music Man Vintage tremolo and 5 way pickup selector switch.

      Comments about Music Man Luke Signature LIII HSS Electric Guitar:

      I am absolutely hooked on MM guitars. I bought my first last summer - a Silhouette. I loved it so much that I got an Albert Lee HH a few months later. Now I have this Luke III. It's just amazing how notes just bloom. I have many guitars and have had many guitars. Love my PRS, Strats, and the myriad other ones, but there is just something extra special about these guitars. They are just sublime. I just love 'em. Do yourself a favor and try one and you'll see.

      Comments about Music Man Luke Signature LIII HSS Electric Guitar:

      I have 9 high end electric guitars and this is by far the most reliable one in my arsenal. To be honest, I wasnt crazy about the look... kind of small and I didnt care for the design. However, when I tried it out I was very surprised at how flexible and sturdy the tremolo system is. I ended up purchasing it and even though I am still not crazy about the appearance, it always stays in tune no matter how much banging around I do with the tremolo. Very easy to play and sounds great.

        Comments about Music Man Luke Signature LIII HSS Electric Guitar:

        One of the best guitars I have ever played hands down. I have owned 4 PRS guitars which all sounded great and I loved, but this guitar has to take all those in terms of sound. Especially for the price of the guitar. Now it isn,t anything flashy like a PRS but it makes up for it with tone. The boost knob is by far what sets this guitar apart from the others. Also, the gun stock oil finish on the back of the neck lets you cruise around the neck with ease. This has one of the most sparkly clean tones of any guitar as well as a very defined distorted tone that allows you to hear every note in the chord that really gives it a presence. All in all for the money you put down on this guitar it is one of the best if not the best money can buy. SO CLICK ADD TO CART AND BUY IT.

        Comments about Music Man Luke Signature LIII HSS Electric Guitar:

        I played this guitar for the first time this past Wednesday. I was completely blown away by the quality, feel and mostly the sound of this guitar. Until now I was a strict Fender/Gibson owner but this Music Man guitar surpassed anything I have played in the past with sound, tone, and every other item I can think of. I plan on buying one this week without question. This guitar is a very well kept secret that should be shouted from the highest mountain. This is one truly amazing guitar for the money and I have found nothing that can compare to it, and I'm a very picky person about my guitars. This one is truly amazing.
