Brand new Ernie Ball Luke III in a stunning all new Cherry Burst finish with a pristine figured Maple top! 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.
Featuring a light-weight Okoume body with a premium figured maple top and newly designed custom Music Man electronics, this latest evolution of Steve Lukather’s signature guitar perfectly fuses comfort, beauty, and tonal versatility. Outfitted with newly designed Ernie Ball Music Man pickups, providing players with a variety of tonal options. Both pickup configurations are furnished with a 5-way switch and a 12dB boost push/push volume control. Other appointments include a roasted maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, and a floating Music Man vintage tremolo system.
