This long-running Gibson signature model is based on the various modified ES-355s used by blues legend B.B. King. Like King’s guitars, the Lucille model lacks F-holes to reduce feedback and featues a tunable TP-6 bridge. Over the course of its production run, the headstock inlay shifted from saying “Lucille” to a larger B.B. King emblem.
