6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 6 years' warranty and 180 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Epiphone BB King Lucille, Ebony

Details
The Epiphone B B King Lucille, Ebony is a signature guitar from B.B. King that is inspired by his own guitars that he named 'Lucille'. His Lucille guitars mainly consisted of black Gibson ES-335 guitars, and he requested that his signature semi-hollow model featured no 'F'-holes with the aim to reduce feedback. Just like the original, the body is crafted from maple, which delivers exceptionally bright and balanced tones with ringing sustain. The neck is also made from maple, and it is paired with a rosewood fingerboard which enhances the tone with soft, warm articulation. Powered by a pair of Alnico Classic Humbuckers, the Epiphone B.B. King Lucille produces a powerful and wonderfully vintage sound. The Signature Lucille Guitar is also equipped with a versatile VariTone Selector, that is loaded with 5 pre-set notch filters and a bypass; for a total of 18 unique tones to sculpt your ideal sound. The B.B. King Signature Lucille wouldn't be complete without a sleek Ebony finish, gold hardware and a tortoiseshell pickguard, to create the perfect tribute to the King Of Blues.

Pair of Alnico Classic Humbuckers

Loaded with a pair of Open Alnico Classic Humbuckers, the Epiphone B B King Lucille delivers a powerful yet balanced tone that is ideal for classic rock styles. With its vintage tonality, the Signature B B King yields an excellent blues tone, as well as a sonically pleasing tonal palette. The humbuckers deliver tight, sparkling highs and a deep, full-bodied low end, for a wonderfully versatile tone. The controls include a Volume and Tone each, and the outputs include a 1/4" mono for both pickups, or the neck pickup in Stereo Mode as well as a 1/4" Stereo for the bridge pickup.

Gibson's VariTone 6-Way Switch

The Epiphone B B King Lucille is equipped with a Gibson VariTone, which is a 6-way rotary switch that allows you to choose from a variety of 5 pre-set notch filters and a bypass, in order to sculpt your own tone. The 1st position has full bypass, whilst Position 2 has 5db at 1950 Hz, Position 3 is 12db at 1100 Hz, Position 4 15db at 620 Hz, Position 5 for 18.5db at 360 Hz and finally Position 6 offers 21db at 120 Hz. With a total of 18 unique tonal possibilities, the Epiphone Lucille allows you to shape your own sound for Jazz, Blues, Rock and many more music styles, with ease.

Semi-Hollow Maple Body

The B B King Signature Lucille features semi-hollow construction and is crafted from maple, delivering bright and tight tones with beautiful sustain. The semi-hollow body is made without F-holes, which was a preference of King himself in order to reduce feedback and to get the right combination of tone and volume.

Maple Neck Paired With Rosewood Fingerboard

This Epiphone guitar features a smooth maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard to deliver warm yet bright tones. The maple provides a tight, roundness to the tone, providing bright characteristics and an excellent amount of sustain. The rosewood offers sweetness to the tone, smoothing it out and furring up the harsh edges of the maple. The maple and rosewood combination creates a sparkling, sizzling high-end, an open midrange with a snappy attack, and a thick, firm low-end.

About B B King

B B King is recognised as one of the most influential and most talented Blues musicians of all time, with his impressive solo playing style. King started within the music industry as a disk jockey on WDIA radio in Memphis, and he then began recording songs with LA-based RPM Records. Between the years of 1956 and 2008, spanning over 5 decades, B B King recorded 42 studio albums and he won an impressive 15 Grammy Awards. King named every guitar that he owned as 'Lucille', which were usually black Gibson guitars, and he is best known for wielding a Gibson ES-335 which inspired this Epiphone Signature Lucille guitar.
