  • Epiphone Lucille: A SWEET Deal!

    As reviewed by John Harnett on 9/22/2009

    I received my new Lucille from Guitar Center as a birthday gift from my girlfriend. The first thing that one notices are, obviously, the cosmetics. Wow! Is this eye candy!! The finish is like a mirror, flawless and clear. The creamy white binding on the headstock, neck, front and back of the body set a strong contrast with the ebony finish that makes the appearance pop. The rosewood fretboard, with its beautiful block mother of pearl inlays, is buzz-free, smooth and fast while the frets have been perfectly filed and shaped. The gold appointments sing of style. The inlaid "Lucille" on the headstock and gold "BB King" truss rod cover add the finishing touches to make this lady the queen of my guitar collection! I cannot get over how versitile this axe is! The 6 position Varitone switch provides an incredibly wide variety of tones to choose from. The stereo output is awesome. One channel is for the bridge pickup, the other is for the neck. I plug the bridge pickup into my Fender Princeton guitar amp, and the other into my Peavy bass amp, and the tonal options that I have, literally at my fingertips, are incredible! The pickups ring with full tones, both bright and rich. When adjusting the volume and tone pots, the motion is smooth and crackle free. Lastly, tune-o-matic bridge and TP-6 fine tuning tailpiece are the ideal combination; once tuned, my Lucille STAYS in tune! Whether playing clean or distorted, I am able to get tones and harmonics that I had never dreamed of before. This guitar is not just another pretty lady; she's a sonic monster that has helped me reach new levels of musicianship that I did not think I could get to before. I highly recommend this axe!

  • Versatility is the name of the game

    As reviewed by jerry Palladino on 3/15/2011

    The varitone knob really works. If you can't find a tone you like on this guitar, your too damn picky. The finish is very good, it stays in tune and it plays great. However, this is the second one. The first one had a crack in the neck that went around from one side of the neck to the other side. Epiphone said it must have happened in shipping. Thats bull s--- though since the box was perfect. Another Epiphone I recently bought had a warped neck. Epiphone needs to get some quality control. Guitarcenter replaced both quickly with no questioned asked.
