Player's Perspective

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 guitarists can all understand. You can wrench everything from thick and creamy neck position tones to raunchy over-driven 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 with the gain boost offered by pushing the volume knob (like a button). The neck feel is perfectly seamless, sleek and uniquely luxurious. The Luke III isn't just for the Lukather fans, this is the kind of guitar that can help unlock that next level. It feels right at home to any bold on or set net player and I really just can't stress how comfortable the neck is. Unique to this BFR model is the PERFECTLY bookmatched flame maple top and a highly figured roasted flame maple neck. The figuring is intense and gives the guitar beautiful, yet classy look. The BFR in the model name stands for "Ball Family Reserve" and you can tell the top wood on this definitely came from a very select and reserved group of top woods and the craftsmanship of the instrument is that of Ernie Ball's top luthiers.

Item Details

The Luke III features an alder body, roasted birdseye maple neck with East Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The LIII is powered by Dimarzio transitions passive humbuckers and custom voiced single coil pickups. Smooth action Music Man floating vintage tremolo, 5 way pickup selector and 20db active boost give the Luke 3 a variety of tonal combinations suitable for any musical style. 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.

Steve Lukather, the guitarist best known for his work with the rock band Toto, has been setting the bar higher and higher over the years with his own 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 Steve's playing when he's tearing apart one of your favorite tunes live on stage.
