S/N: 90359351, dates to February 4, 1999 from the Gibson Nashville plant.
The late, great BB King was so strongly associated with the Gibson ES-355 he called Lucille, in 1980 Gibson released the custom BB King Lucille model.

Based closely on the ES-355, the Gibson B.B. King Lucille has a closed body - no F-holes, for better feedback rejection at stage volumes - a maple neck with Richlite fingerboard, and a 'Lucille' inlay on the headstock. And, it's available in any colour you can think of, as long as it's black.

This 1999 Gibson B.B. King Lucille is in quite good shape. The gold hardware has very light wear, and the frets could look better than new with just a polish. As stock, it carries a fine-tuner tailpiece.

The Lucille wiring includes a six-position Varitone switch, and both mono and stereo (one pickup to each channel) output jacks.

This exceptional guitar plays very well and includes the original brown arched-top case.
