Player's Perspective

Whether you're holding the line, or trying to serenade Roseanna, this axe will be your faithful companion through thick and thin. Music Store Live is proud to present this Music Man Luke III in a limited edition Tumescent finish with an autorgraphed trem cavity plate from none other than Mr. Lukather, himself! This one is number 33 out of 300.

This is a ripper from top to bottom! The Luke III embodies the spirit and tone of Steve Lukather's playing in a way that serious players can all understand. This BFR version kicks it up a notch by having Ernie Ball's top luthiers come together to build one of the most expertly crafted guitars we have come across in quite some time. You can wrench everything from thick and creamy neck position tones to raunchy overdriven lead tones that cut like a knife. It even has a trick or two up its sleeve for when you need it to go full throttle crazy in the middle of a solo. The neck feel is perfectly seamless, sleek and uniquely luxurious. The L III isn't just for the Lukather fans. This is the kind of guitar that can help unlock that next level of shredding for you.

Item Details

Steve Lukather, the guitarist best know for his work with the rock band Toto, has been setting the bar higher and higher over the years with his own style of blistering style of rock fusion, not to mention his impressive work in the studio. He's been a long time endorser of Ernie Ball Music Man guitars and his signature axes are no different from the ones he wields on stage. So what does that mean for you? It means you're looking at the same axe he's playing when he tearing apart one of your favorite tunes live on stage.

The L III features a slightly larger body than the standard model ( 3% larger in fact ) and features an alder body, a roasted maple neck and fretboard, 22 frets and 2 DiMarzio humbuckers with a custom Music Man active preamp. There is a quick release compartment for the 9volt battery that powers the preamp so you'll never have to worry about messing around too much on a gig if the battery gets low. Quick and easy! 

The new Luke III 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++ maple top and roasted birdseye maple neck have refined this new signature edition into an instrument of superior tone and versatility. New for Spring 2017, the Luke3 BFR is now available in an exclusive Tumescent finish. Each comes with a signed backplate from Lukather himself, along with a hand-signed, numbered certificate of authenticity.
