Brand new Ernie Ball Luke III in a stunning all new Ocean Sparkle 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.
Revamped with custom Music Man electronics, the latest evolution of Steve Lukather’s signature guitar features an alder body with a figured roasted maple neck and rosewood fingerboard. The HH model is outfitted with newly designed Ernie Ball Music Man high-output humbucking pickups. The HSS model, equipped with the same new bridge humbucker, also sports Ernie Ball Music Man’s renowned Cutlass single coils, providing players with amazing tonal versatility. Both pickup configurations are furnished with a 5-way switch and a 20dB boost push/push volume knob. The LIII comes standard with a super smooth floating Music Man vintage tremolo system..
