New for Spring 2017, the limited BFR model is now equipped with a mahogany tone block, an exquisite AAA figured maple top, a butter-like roasted birdseye maple neck and Luke’s staple on-board 20bd boost. Each guitar ships with a signed backplate by Mr. Lukather himself, as well as a hand-signed certificate of authenticity.
Steve Lukather is arguably one of the most renowned session guitar players on the planet. Whilst also being at the focal point of rock outfit Toto, he’s contributed to more than 1,500 albums with the likes of Michael Jackson, Earth Wind & Fire, Elton John and Ringo Starr. Many will argue that he’s often overlooked as one of the best, but his abilities on the guitar are extraordinary, not to mention his vocal and songwriting capabilities.
For the last 20 years or so Music Man have worked with Steve, resulting in his line of ‘Luke’ signature models – which have been a constant in his arsenal since the first release. The Luke III is the latest and greatest of his signature models, most of the appointments staying the same – but with a set of Custom DiMarzio pickups replacing the EMG HSS setup.
