Product Description

Ernie Ball Luke III BFR (Ball Family reserve) with an absolutely stunning Flame top! This instrument is the perfect amalgamation of some of the finest features spec’ed out to meet the demanding playing style of Steve Lukather and is in virtuelly unplayed condition. 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 tone woods and overall craftsmanship.

Features: “The Luke Ball Family Reserve is the next evolution in the design process started with the original Luke model some 22 years prior. Addressing Steve’s performance needs as a touring guitarist has been critical in the development of this new edition. The added mahogany tone block, on-board 20db boost, beautifully figured A++ koa top and roasted birdseye maple neck have refined this new signature edition into an instrument of superior tone and versatility.”
