Lucille Gone?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

Just looking at the 2019 models, and it seems they may have discontinued the BB King Lucille model.

 

Am I right or wrong?

They have not had a Lucille since the 2016 model year, though some of those were made well into 2017. Does not mean they won't make them any more.

For example, look under 2015 Flying V. Nothing there. Was not the end of Flying Vs, though.

Looks to be basically the same as the last one. Other than some cosmetics, it changed to a one piece maple neck.

Not a fan of the white. I think it loses some of the bling because the white binding gets lost in the white body color. Unfortunately, I can't see any other color binding working with white either.

Personally, I feel that the Lucille (and all of the other upper crust Gibsons) vanished when they went to Richlite.

 

Richlite may be a perfectly fine substitute but it doesn't belong on a top of the line guitar.

Way to go, Henry.
