Player's Perspective

Hold the line! Love may not always be on time, but here's a guitar that will never let you down and will always be reliably by your side. The firemist purple is one of our favorite Music Man finishes.

Music Store Live is proud to present this Music Man Luke III HSS! This is a ripper from top to bottom. The L III embodies the spirit and tone of Steve Lukather's playing in a way that serious players can all understand. You can wrench everything from thick and creamy neck position tones to raunchy overdriven lead tones that cut like a knife. It even has a trick or two up its sleeve for when you need it to go full throttle crazy in the middle of a solo. The neck feel is perfectly seamless, sleek and uniquely luxurious. The L III isn't just for the Lukather fans. This is the kind of guitar that can help unlock that next level of shredding for you.

Item Details

Steve Lukather, the guitarist best known for his work with the rock band Toto, has been setting the bar higher and higher over the years with his own blistering style of rock fusion, not to mention his impressive work in the studio. He's been a long time endorser of Ernie Ball Music Man guitars, and his signature axes are no different from the ones he wields on stage. So what does that mean for you? It means you're looking at the same axe Steve's playing when he's tearing apart one of your favorite tunes live on stage.

This Firemist Purple L III features an alder body, a roasted maple neck and rosewood fretboard with 22 frets. Electronically, this guitar has a DiMarzio Transition humbucker in the bridge and a DiMarzio Custom single coil in the middle and neck positions. There is a quick release compartment for the 9volt battery that powers the preamp, so you'll never have to worry about messing around too much on a gig if the battery gets low. For controls, the L III features a master volume and a passive tone control. The added push/push switch on the volume knob gives you an adjustable 12 db gain boost, which is perfect for mid-song or mid-solo when you need a little extra kick. (That's right - you push it down to engage it, and push it down again to disengage it. Very cool!)

Other features include Schaller M6-IND locking tuners, gun oil hand rubbed neck finish, a 5 way pickup switch and a Music Man floating vintage tremolo bridge that lets you get away with murder without ever going out of tune. This L IIII comes with a Music Man black hard shell case that looks like you can throw it down the stairs without denting it.
