"It seems that it loves to be petted and played with. There's also a certain way you hold it, the certain noises it makes, the way it excites me ... and Lucille don't want to play anything but the blues ... Lucille is real, when I play her it's almost like hearing words, and of course, naturally I hear cries."
— B.B. King, liner notes from the album, Lucille, 1968

The Gibson B.B. King Lucille electric guitar is an enhanced ES-345, B.B. King's original Gibson guitar. Blues legend B.B. King had been playing Gibsons for over 40 years when he and Gibson officially joined forces in 1982. B.B.'s personal touches on his signature model include the fine-tuner tailpiece, the semi-hollow body with no soundholes and, of course, the name that has adorned his guitars throughout his career 'Lucille'. The Gibson B.B. King Lucille has a Maple laminate on the top, back, and rims, all joined with a single solid maple center block. A 3-piece maple neck with bound ebony fingerboard. Tone rich 490R and a 490T humbuckers translate the body's natural resonance into haunting jazz tones or searing distorted leads. The rounded neck profile is very comfortable while the bound top and back, plus Metal Tulip tuners, gold hardware and pearl block inlays make this guitar a comfort to play and watch. The Gibson B.B. King Lucille provides the tone and the look that inspires musicians in blues, rock and jazz. Includes Gibson black levant hardshell case.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
