The sound and style of B.B. King powered by a pair of Gibson Custombuckers.

The legendary Gibson B.B. King Lucille Legacy semi-hollow electric guitar returns to the Custom Shop lineup, featuring all of the high-end appointments that are fit for a King. Highlights include gold hardware—including a gold “B.B. King” engraved truss rod cover—and a TP-6 tailpiece with fine tuners. A “Lucille” mother-of-pearl inlay adorns the headstock, complemented by the mother-of-pearl split block inlays along the ebony fingerboard. A mono Varitone switch is paired to a duo of Gibson Custombucker humbucking pickups, along with four audio-taper CTS potentiometers and paper-in-oil Bumblebee capacitors. The iconic semi-hollow body design remains, but the f-holes are gone, per B.B. King’s personal preferences. The top, back and sides of the body feature a stunning figured maple veneer, visible through the transparent nitrocellulose lacquer finish, making Lucille a guitar fit for blues royalty. Comes with a Custom Shop hardshell case.


  • 3-ply figured maple/poplar/maple top, back and sides
  • Mahogany neck in a SlimTaper profile
  • Ebony fingerboard with 22 frets and mother-of-pearl split block inlays
  • Dual Gibson Custombucker humbucking pickups
