A broader, more defined tone while retaining the familiar shape and feel of the original Luke model.

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 Signature LIII HSS Electric Guitar represents Steve's evolution towards the perfect performance guitar. The LIII features a larger Alder body, (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 dual Humbucking (our product # H80760) or H-S-S pickup configuration (shown here), volume control and a passive tone control with a new Push/Push switch for an adjustable 12 db 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.

  • Lots to love but....

    As reviewed by dan pechtol on 7/22/2013

    Loved the guitar when I first picked it up in a GC store. The rosewood neck was amazing. So fast and smooth - it just felt like it made me play so much better and faster. Great sound out of the dual HB's and just a pleasure to play. Light weight and balance - after trying a bunch of Les Paul's, it felt so light that you know you could play for hours. After leaving the store and trying other guitars, this one still called to me and I wound up ordering via email with a really helpful sales rep with the HSS setup. Good service. Good price. Fast shipment. The disappointment came when I tried my new baby. Fret buzz on 5 strings and the (old?) G string sounded terrible. Having a problem with tuning stability and the floating tremolo is so sensitive, I don't even have to touch the whammy bar for vibrato. Just tap the bridge. I know this is all fixable, but after spending a lot of cash on a new guitar, why do I have to start screwing around with it? Shouldn't it have a better setup to start? Maybe it's not the right one for me. Still love the neck though.....

  • Amazing!

    As reviewed by Fernando Oliveira on 12/29/2012

    Best guitar ever! A comfortable body and awesome sound (DiMarzio pickups). The passive push/push active system make all the difference. I bought in August 2012, and I am very satisfied with the acquisition. The TOTO fans and, specially the Lukather lovers must to have this guitar. The guitarists must try and, for sure, will buy this amazing guitar.
