Music Man BFR Luke III HSS Tumescent Bound Ebony in the Electric Guitars category
Steve Lukather and the Ernie Ball Family Reserve Steve Lukather has been working with Music Man for many years now with a large array of signature models based on his high demands and playing specifications. The Ball Family Reserve Luke III BFR is a re-imagination of the current Luke Models designed for even higher performance and richer tones. It comes from the Ball Family Reserve series; a range of models produced in limited quantities with the finest quality tonewoods and finishes to produce some truly custom-shop standard instruments. Premium Tonewoods The Ball Family Reserve pride themselves on crafting limited run guitars with top quality woods and finishes. The Music Man Luke III BFR is no different and is crafted from warm and resonant African mahogany. It is paired with a mahogany neck and provides a wonderfully rich and nuanced tone with great sustain and acoustic resonance. The ebony fingerboard assists with low-end articulation and provides a smooth playing surface for the left hand. This guitar was designed to be more tonally rich than the original Luke III and it is in part due to these tonewoods that it is able to achieve that goal. Unrivalled Playability The Luke III features a medium-flat 12 radius with a comparatively short 25-1/2 string-length. When combined with 22 high-profile medium-wide frets this gives an incredibly slick playing feel with easy bends and vibrato. The deep double cutaway and 5-bolt sculpted neck joint means high fret access is simply no problem whatsoever. As youd expect from the demands of a guitarist like Lukather playing the 22nd fret is no more taxing then playing the 1st. DiMarzio Pickups With such high quality tonewoods the Luke III needs versatile and nuanced pickups to live up to the tonal qualities that the woods possess; enter DiMarzio. The Steve Lukather Transition humbucker is designed for power and depth with a real organic feel. They are open sounding yet equally capable of high-gain saturation and liquid smooth lead tones. Steve says hes started over sonically and is into a more organic sound these days but the Transition Bridge Model has a tough in-your-face sound thats also perfect for shredding and technical playing. The two Custom single coil pickups provide the sonic contrast to the humbucker bridge and make this a particularly versatile studio or live instrument. Top Quality Hardware The Luke III BFR features a non-locking tremolo of Music Mans own design. When combined with the Schaller M6-IND locking machine heads they give absolute tuning stability and an accurate return-to-pitch. Electronic Versatility An on-board preamp gives the Luke III access to a 15db gain boost which can be engaged at any moment. This is ideal for pushing your amp harder in order to gain a lead boost. About Steve Lukather Steve Lukather was the primary guitarist for the band Toto and has since diversified his playing to become one of the most in-demand session players working with countless credits to his name. He possesses a complete command of his instrument in almost any genre and needs a guitar that can deliver a wide range of tones with no limits to his technique. Lukather is a long-time user of Music Man which makes the connection with his signature guitars so strong. Reviews “This is a superb modern electric guitar – in this case designed to work for a top guitar player. The Luke III is almost vintage in its neck feel and its secret weapon gain boost and versatile pickups mean that itd be superb on any rock gig not to mention jam session.” – Music Radar Read the full review on the Music Radar website.

About Music Man
Even with advanced Music Man manufacturing techniques, it isn’t possible to automate the production of great instruments like this Music Man BFR Luke III HSS Tumescent Bound Ebony. The complexity of the task, combined with the need for constant awareness of the materials being used and the ability to adjust for minute variations, means that there is no substitute for the skill and sensitivity of experienced craftspeople.
Turning designs into great instruments isn’t easy. Technical drawings can’t convey the intended tone of an instrument, or the construction methodology required to create the desired characteristics and sound. Before building a new guitar can begin, the plans and intentions of the designers are discussed with the craftspeople at the factory in order to develop an appropriate production process. Every guitar is different, and coming up with the ideal production methodology and workflow for each guitar is critical.
