Guitarist Steve Lukather has been an endorser of Ernie Ball Music Man guitars for years with his own signature models that are no different than the ones he plays on stage. The Music Man Luke III HSS Quilt Maple Top Electric Guitar represents Steve's evolution towards the perfect performance guitar.
This special run of the LIII features a larger African mahogany body with a quilted maple top, (3% larger profile than the standard model Luke guitar), 22-fret full rosewood neck and new passive DiMarzio pickups with custom Music Man active preamp. Electronics include a 500kOhm passive tone control and a volume control with a new Push/Push switch for an adjustable 12db Volume boost.
Similar in style, the Luke III exhibits a broader, more defined tone while retaining the familiar shape and feel as the original Luke model. Other standard features include a Music Man Vintage tremolo and 5-way pickup selector switch.

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Luke III HSS Quilt Maple Top Electric Guitar:
When the Bali Blue came out in quilted maple, I chose the exact wood pattern I wanted and ordered it from GC off of their platinum page. The feel of this rosewood neck (not just fretboard - the whole neck!) is amazing - just insane. And I really love the trem system - very expressive and no noise at all. This is one fast-playing guitar, and has an awesome boost that is great for going from rhythm to solo!
