Please make a selection from the drop down menu and browse through the EBMM Ltd. Ed. BFR Luke III HH Claro Walnut Electric Guitars that are currently in stock and have been individually photographed/listed by their unique serial number/weight.

A unique take on Steve Lukather's signature model, Ernie Ball Music Man is proud to introduce the Limited Edition Ball Family Reserve Luke III Claro Walnut. Limited to only 34 instruments worldwide and signed by Luke himself, this incarnation of the Ball Family Reserve Luke III boasts a rare Claro Walnut top, a beautifully figured bound maple neck and a rosewood fingerboard with 22 upgraded stainless steel frets, and dual DiMarzio Transition humbuckers with a versatile custom preamp.

Classy Claro Walnut
Instead of typical alder body/maple top combination on the Luke III, this BFR Luke III showcases a luxurious, rare claro walnut top over an African mahogany body. Accentuating walnut's distinctive figure, the BFR Luke III is adorned in an exclusive translucent walnut burst finish.

Bound Neck and Upgraded Frets
The roasted figured maple neck is complemented by crisp white hand-shaped binding, and the rosewood fingerboard comes fitted with 22 smooth-playing, longer-lasting stainless steel frets.

DiMarzio Transitions and Custom Preamp
The Ball Family Reserve Luke III comes loaded up with a pair of DiMarzio Transition humbuckers that sound amazing, especially when you have the gain, overdrive, or distortion cranked up. The pickups are routed through a Custom Music Man active preamp that sports a master tone control and a push/pull volume control that features built-in 20+ dB gain boost for when you need some extra growl, bite and power on the fly--perfect for scorching solos and searing hot leads. A versatile 5-way pickup selector provides you with a variety of tonal combinations.
