Epiphone B.B. King Lucille Korea vs China

Recommended Posts

Trying to decide between the newer Made in China Lucille vs a 2017 Korean Lucille. I prefer the ebony and the headstock of the newer ones, but my budget prefers the older Made in Koreas and I have heard that the craftmanship is quite good on those Korean ones. Does anyone have any insights into the differences? I am looking to see if there are major differences between build quality. neck shape, and finish quality. I can always put in new pickups, even if I'd prefer not to have to, but I just want to make sure if I get a 2017 Korean Lucille I'm not missing out on all the improvements in the new model. Thanks!
