About this deal

For those after a BB. King model, this may be time to grab one. I've been really impressed with the quality of Epiphone instruments over the last few years and as you'd expect the prices have risen as well. I certainly think £849 is overpriced for what you're getting here, but it's much, much more palatable at £639.

Andertons are £10 more than this, so worth keeping an eye there too, just in case a price battle happens (I doublt it, but still)

B.B. King, B.B. King, let me iiiiiin!
Absolutely nothing to do with TWD, but the first thing I thought of when I saw this offer was Negan
Which is pretty bad considering B.B King is in the title. Anyway, in case you wondered what the mental picture was....

At A Glance:
Based on Mr King's own iconic Gibson, the Epiphone B.B. King Lucille Ebony delivers the original's unmistakable look and profile at a fantastic price.

This is one feature-laden guitar, sporting the classic Gibson ES style body without F-holes, one of BB's own specific requests to cut down on feedback. The electronics are very impressive, with a pair of Alnico Classic PRO humbuckers, wired to CTS pots, with Mono and Stereo outputs and a 6-Position Varitone Switch for MAXIMUM tonal versatility. The Epiphone Lucille is also fitted with Epiphone's top hardware appointments such as the Epiphone LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and TP-6 Stop Bar with Fine Tuners for complete tuning precision and stability.

The Epiphone B.B. King Lucille Ebony is built to take you everywhere from smooth jazz tones, to serious rock& roll sounds, to making your axe cry with the Blues, just like B.B. This guitar also comes supplied with Epiphone's EpiLite case.

    Anderton's a tenner more at the mo.:)

    Price rises on Epiphones at this stage, takes them off the table for me, really. I've been thinking about grabbing a Les Paul for a while, but not really decided. My local music shop (50 mile ish round trip) is closing down and stock is pretty low after the prices they were doing last week. (50% off all guitars) So nothing there to play around with.

    It's looking like I'll be waiting for a while longer. Cheers for the shout on that. Hopefully it's just a rumour, but right now... It's probably more likely than not

    Sure it's a nice guitar, but BB is one of the few that will be BB on most guitar rigs. It's his vibrato and economical use of the minor Pentatonic that's the basis of his sound. The fact that Michael Gira of the Swans also plays this is telling. Think you should put the saving in the title.
