  • Product Description

    Brand new Ernie Ball Luke III BFR in a stunning limited edition Shadow Gold finish! This gorgeous instrument is the perfect amalgamation of some of the finest features spec'ed out to meet the demanding playing style of Steve Lukather. Comfort, form and function are top priority here, and the pickup set is incredibly versatile. They are delicate enough at lower volumes and gain settings to use in a studio setting, with a huge dose of vintage tone on tap for the times when you need to crank it up. We were really impressed by acoustic resonance of this guitar, which truly speaks to the quality of tonewoods and overall craftsmanship.

    Features: The LUKE 3 Family Reserve edition guitar comes with an exclusive Shadow Gold sparkle burst finish. The opaque sparkle African Mahogany body features a HSS pickup configuration and is fully buffed in polyester for a glossy striking appearance. A roasted figured maple neck with rosewood fingerboard is crafted without position markers for a smooth streamlined aesthetic. Other features include a matching painted headstock and pearloid Schaller locking tuners. The overall aesthetic package is enhanced by a Steve Lukather autographed tremolo backplate and all black hardware. Limited to 65 pieces worldwide.
