Gibson ES 355 BB King ‘Lucille Gloss Black Nitrocellulose Lacquer 2005 OHSC autographed by BB King

Gibson ES 355 BB King ‘Lucille in Gloss Black Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish made in 2005 with Original Hard Shell Case. This guitar features a semi-hollow 3-ply figured maple/poplar/maple body and top, mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard. Equipped with a Gibson Proprietary humbucker in the neck position and a Gibson Proprietary humbucker in the bridge position. Controlled by 2 volume, 2 tone, 500k cts audio-taper potentiometers; paper-in-oil bumblebee capacitors knobs and a 6-way mono varitone switch. The 24.75″ scale length neck has mother of pearl split block inlays and 22 medium frets with a slim taper neck profile. The hardware is comprised of Grover tuning machines, a corian nut, a ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge, and black speed knobs with a tortoise shell pickguard.

This beauty comes to us in excellent condition. Being a black guitar if you look close under the right lighting conditions you can see signs of player wear and polish cloth / original buffing swirl. The hardware shows signs of aging, most noticeable on the bridge pick up (see photos). The guitar was signed by BB King for the original owner on the back of the peghead (see photos).

Guitar is freshly setup and restrung with 10-46 strings and includes original hard shell case.
