Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to offer up this limited run BFR Luke III guitar. What a way to celebrate the Music Man and Steve Lukather marriage than with a release like this? This is a ripper from top to bottom and it's got the looks to back it up, too.

The quilt maple top is really nicely figured and looks beautiful under the grapes of wrath finish. There are some subtle, but beautiful touches on this guitar as well, such as the control knobs and the inlays, not to mention the beautifully figured roasted flame maple neck. And, of course, as with many of the signature BFR's that Music Man does, the back trem cover is going to be hand-signed by Steve, the man himself!

Inspired by a true guitar hero and legend that needs to be able to dial in virtually any sound whether in the studio or on the big stage, this axe is ready to rock and will be your trusted companion without ever letting you down. Whether you're a die hard fan of the man, the band, or just a good high-end boutique guitar, this one checks all the boxes for looks, tone, and feel.

Manufacturer's Description
