    Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man BFR Luke III HH with Roasted Figured Maple Neck:

    I have previously owmed two of the regular versions of the Luke III and regretted letting them go but I guess it was meant to be that I would settle on this upgraded model. As with most Music Man guitars, the neck is lightning fast, totally comfortable (satin finish on roasted maple neck) and this one has by far the best to e of the ones I have owmed. The two humbucking Transition Signature pickups sound amazing a d split really well for convincing Strat-Like tones in positions 2 and 4. Add the beautiful Burl Top, flame Maple on the back of the neck and Luke's Signature on the backplate, and you have a special guitar.
