In the history of all music, there has never been a guitar associated with one musician quite like blues legend B.B. King is linked to his beloved Lucille a custom-built Gibson ES-355 manufactured exclusively for the true King of the Blues since 1980. And B.B. King was not only the most renowned blues musician of our time; hes also one of the most important electric guitarists of all-time. His singular bluesy style has influenced generations of players across genres, and his powerful and distinct songs have appeared on the charts more than 70 times, from blues to R&B to pop. ==== While King played many different guitars throughout the early part of his career, the King of the Blues has played a varied mix of Gibson guitars since the late 1940's. He finally made the Gibson ES-355 semi-hollowbody guitar his trademark instrument in the early 1960s, usually stuffing the sound holes to eliminate any chance of feedback. ==== In 1980, King joined the Gibson family as a signature artist, and has played a custom-built ebony ES-355 ever since.
