You are looking at an Ernie Ball Music Man Limited Edition BFR Luke III HH Black Burl Steve Lukather Electric Guitar, serial number G86264. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (7 lbs, 12.3 oz.)

There have been plenty of incarnations of Steve Lukather's signature Luke model, but this Limited Edition BFR Luke III HH in particular really stands out. With a handful of exclusive limited appointments and a pair of DiMarzio Transition humbuckers with a custom preamp, this BFR Luke III HH Black Burl offers exquisite looks to match its excellent tone. For superior performance, the BFR Luke III HH Black Burl comes loaded up premium chrome hardware. Limited to only 60 instruments, this BFR Luke III is an outstanding choice for guitar players who appreciate the natural beauty of tonewoods and need an axe with killer sound and playability!

Exclusive Limited Appointments
Offering a truly remarkable aesthetic and tone, this BFR Luke III HH wears an exotic, strikingly figured buckeye burl top over an African mahogany back. The satin-finished neck is carved from roasted figured maple into a cozy Soft V profile to provide an outstanding playing feel while white binding and dot inlays offer a nice visual contrast to the dark rosewood fingerboard. In addition to these incredible, unique features, the back plate of the BFR Luke III HH has been hand-signed by Steve Lukather himself.

Dual DiMarzio Hums and Custom Preamp
This BFR Luke III comes fully equipped with dual DiMarzio Transition humbuckers that sound incredible, especially when you have the dirt, gain, or distortion turned all the way up to 11. Wired through a Custom Music Man active preamp, the control layout includes 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. The onboard gain boost is ideal for ultra-hot leads and solos, and thanks to a versatile 5-way pickup selector, you can easily tap into a vast palette of tones.

Premium Hardware
Made with the needs of pro guitarists like Lukather in mind, this BFR Luke III HH Black Burl comes fitted with premium chrome hardware, which includes a set of Schaller locking tuners and a vintage-style floating Music Man tremolo.
