Very disappointed.
What is your opinion of this product?
Very disappointed in the sound. With Epiphone sounds nothing like the Gibson BB King. My old guitar sounds better then this Epiphone BB King. I should have known it's not a Gibson BB.

Beautiful to look at and more beautiful to play
What is your opinion of this product?
Quality of finish on the wood and metal is top notch. The instrument is heavy which might be a consideration for some but once I played it all the weight went away and was replaced with a wonderful sound. The front neck strap peg being on the underside of the body takes a little getting use to. Might have one added to the normal position later on. All in all taking into account the quality of the instrument, the price and the sound this a great bargain and I am very pleased with my decision to purchase this guitar

Good but not as great as I expected...
What is your opinion of this product?
Having had her now for roughly 3 months here's my review, despite some other reviews about frets being rough and needing setup of inotation, mine arrived already setup, inotation was spot on...the frets were smooth as can be and the varitone does give her extra tonal options with #5 being the best IMO...and she sounds great clean, but even better with a BOSS OD-2 Blues Driver pedal. That being said after about a month, the input jack on the guitar itself with there being 2 of them...a mono and a stereo, both got really loose and I had to tighten them up with some lock-tight which didn't really make me that happy. The strings that came on her left a dirty type residue on my fingers after 30 mins of play time and that was even after I gave the strings a wipe dowm so those got changed immediately. All in all, it's not a bad guitar; just not sure if it's worthy of having the name "Lucille" on the headstock.

Good, but could be great
What is your opinion of this product?
I have wanted a BB King Lucille for a long time. After BB King's recent passing, I figured I needed to get one before they went away. The first one I got had a defect in the headstock binding. The second one did not have that defect, but I think that Epiphone is pumping these out as fast as possible in order to cash in on BB King's death. Both guitars had issues that I have not had on an Epiphone before. The frets were not dressed. I had to sand and use steel wool on every fret. The pickguard had scratches on it, I was able to buff them out with a polishing paste. The "E" logo on the pickguard of both guitars was peeling up from the bottom. I have not tried to fix this yet. The set up on the guitar was WAY off. Neck not adjusted properly, bridge was way too high, intonation off by a long shot. I expected better from Epiphone. If you don't mind setting up the guitar from scratch, and having to deal with a few minor defects, the guitar sounds and plays great after a little work.
