Through Youtube Bb King Lucille  all, King has toured as prolifically as any performer in history. The road has been him home since the mid-Fifties. He reportedly performed 342 shows one year, and he’d average more than 200 shows annually even into his seventies. Each June he sets aside a few weeks for himself, going back to Indianola for what he calls “the Mississippi Homecoming.”

At the start of his Youtube Bb King Lucille career, King’s reach didn’t extend beyond the network of clubs and juke joints known as the chitlin’ circuit. Somewhat prophetically he noted, “We don’t play for white people…. I’m not saying we won’t play for whites, because I don’t know what the future holds. Records are funny. You aim them for the colored market, then suddenly the white folks like them, then wham, you’ve got whites at your dances.”

Sure enough, in the mid-Sixties, King’s hard work, musical genius, affable persona and revered stature among rock icons broadened his base of support to include a new audience of white listeners who tuned into the blues and stuck with King for the long haul. King came to the attention of yet another generation of younger listeners when he recorded “When Love Comes to Town” in 1988 with U2 for their Rattle and Hum album and movie.

“B.B. King’s achievement has been to take the primordial music he heard as a kid, mix and match it with a bewildering variety of other musics, and bring it all into the digital age,” Colin Escott wrote Youtube Bb King Lucille in his essay for the King of the Blues box set. “There will probably never be another musical journey comparable to [King’s].”

The final word belongs to Youtube Bb King Lucille himself, testifying on the healing quality of the genre he embodies. “I’m trying to get people to see that we are our brother’s keeper,” King has said. “Red, white, black, brown or yellow, rich or poor, we all have the blues.”

Gibson Bb King Lucille Sale

This Gibson Bb King Lucille Sale guitar is absolutely wonderful, fun to play and much lighter & more comfortable than the larger models.If you are looking for a sweet vintage blues and fingerpicking parlor sized guitar, there are none finer in this price range.

Hand made in Bozeman, Montana USA this guitar delivers haunting blues as well classic country fingerpicking tone of Gibson Bb King Lucille, full and even. This is not your big strumming concert guitar although it does very well just strumming away. The tone is well balanced all theGibson Bb King Lucille way up the neck of Gibson Bb King Lucille with no heavy overtones. Semi dry in resonance with pronounced mids that produce that classic tonal vibe hearkening back to the days of blues roots and country picking.

Gibson Bb King Lucille touts a “thinner body” but in actuality, they only shaved 1/4″ making it a flat 4″ width with a Sitka Spruce radius top soundboard and bracing.

Bubinga wood of Gibson Bb King Lucille is sometimes called “African Rosewood” and is used for the back and sides. Very beautiful wood grain even deeper than mahogany. Mahogany neck and Rosewood fingerboard with the edges rolled and fret edges beveled for comfort.

Very nice and easy to play semi wide neck allows for fingerpicking without muting adjacent strings as easily. Very comfortable “C-shaped” and I noticed the low F barre chord rang out quite easily with minimal pressure compared to my other guitars.Basic elegance understated with simple decorative appointments. Nothing fancy here folks -and the Gibson Bb King Lucille guitar looks great just the way it is.

Gibson does not provide a plush lined hard shell case with this model. Instead they give you a well padded gig bag. -and I mean WELL PADDED! Not as heavy-duty as one of those hard foam cases but should work fine. Most people think it’s a shame tha Gibson Bb King Lucille didn’t include a nicer case and bought their own hard shell case…I am one of those people.
If you are looking for a case that protects as well as matches the quality of this fine guitar, I suggest the “SKB 000 Case” for a perfect fit. Much higher quality and protection than even the stock Gibson cases.

As of this review (June 2013) Gibson has ceased manufacturing these guitars, at least for the time being. They were made until the beginning of 2013. My guess is they are either backlogged or will be forced to make something very similar, as well as the existing L-00 sized parlor guitars that are almost the same.

The L-00 Gibson Bb King Lucille guitar necks are joined to the body at the 14th fret, whereas the L-1 guitars are joined at the 12th fret.

The body is a little smaller than the standard dreadnought, is ample loud, great for soloing and bending notes. You can really dig in to this guitar, strike it hard and it can take it. Contrary to my own review, I was having a great time strumming away…and whacking it quite hard. The low-end did get a little lost overall, but when played with precision the guitar has a very well balanced tone and killer vibe.
