The Gibson Little Lucille For Sale is a relatively recently designed (1996-2006) Gibson model designed mainly for blues players. It superficially resembles the Les Paul in that the body outline is similar. The little lucille gibson was discontinued by Gibson in 2006. The Little Lucille is a diverse on the Blueshawk that features a stop tailpiece and tune-o-matic bridge. The Little Lucille was endorsed by BB King.
In 1999, Gibson Little Lucille For Sale launched the Little Lucille, a version of their Blueshawk guitar. It differed from the Blueshawk in having a Tune-o-matic bridge and a TP-6 stop tailpiece.
The model is no longer found among Gibson USA’s current product listing, and the Blueshawk on which it was based has been discontinued.
About the construction of the little lucille gibson, it has a number of distinctive features that distinguish it from virtually all other Gibsons. The Little Lucille’s body outline is the same as a slightly earlier range of guitars – the Nighthawks (1993-1999) – but unlike the Nighthawks, the Little Lucille is a semi-hollow bodied guitar with twin f-holes and a flat (uncarved) top.

25.5 inch scale length (the same as many Fenders, Gibson’s more typically have a 24.75 inch scale length)
Blues 90 pickups of Gibson Little Lucille For Sale (a modified version of the P-90 pickup)
noise reduction circuitry which employs a dummy coil
a Varitone circuit (similar to that used on the Gibson ES345) – the Varitone circuit is a mid-cut/band-stop filter with a choice of five center frequencies
a light guitar – the body of Gibson Little Lucille For Sale is made from poplar, capped with maple – the body is small and relatively thin and has two cavities
