About This Listing

Lovie’s Guitars San Diego is offering up a gorgeous 1999 Gibson B.B. King Lucille Signature electric guitar! B.B. King will always be a legend for the mark he left on the history of music and singing the blues. This beautiful guitar is a chance to channel the Blues Man himself as it inspired by his actual legendary “Lucille”! It is in excellent condition with very little playtime, just some superficial marks on the body that can only be seen at the right angle in the right light. Zero fretware on a real ebony fretboard! It is all original except added strap locks and comes in a brand new epiphone case. This guitar has an awesome vibe! Makes you want to plug it in and just get carried away by the sweet tunes. Really versatile and rich guitar. SEE many images below!! Great deal!!

WEIGHS in at: 9 lbs. 6 oz.


The Legend of Lucille (rollingstone.com):

Lucille's beginnings date to 1949, when King, then in his early 20s, was performing at a nightclub in Twist, Arkansas, in the dead of winter. To heat the cold room, King recalled in a video interview, "they would take something that looked like a big garbage pail, half fill it with kerosene, light that fuel [and] set it in the middle of the dance floor." All well and good, but on this night, a fight broke out between two men, and the pail was knocked over. "It spilled on the floor, it looked like a river fire," the guitarist said. "And everyone started to run for the front door, including B.B. King."

The blues man managed to make it to safety outside — only to realize he had left his guitar behind. He raced back inside to retrieve it even as the wooden building, he said, "started to fall in around me." The next day, he learned that two men had died in the blaze and that the fight that had set off the tragic chain of events had been over a woman who worked at the club. Her name was Lucille.

B.B., who claimed he "almost lost [his] life" rushing back into the nightclub, christened his guitar after her, he said, "to remind me never to do a thing like that again."
