B.B. King's 'Lucille'
After rescuing his $30 Gibson from a burning Arkansas dance hall in 1949, bluesman B.B. King learned that the fire was started by two men fighting over a woman named Lucille. He has used the name for each of his guitars since, including various Gibsons and Telecasters. In 1980 Gibson began manufacturing the B.B. King signature "Lucille" model, a variation on the company’s combination hollow- and solid-body ES-355.
