B.B. King is a legendary guitar player that really needs no introduction, much like his iconic signature guitar that brings his incredible smooth blues tones even with this more budget friendly Epiphone version. Designed after a classic es-335 but without the f holes this gorgeous looking guitar has more tricks up its sleeve than you might think.
Stunning Solid Design
While it looks like your standard ES-335 from a distance this guitar has a very different feel and tone than you might expect. The body and neck are both made out of maple with a rosewood fingerboard keeping the playing surface smooth and the tone warm. This design does make the guitar heavy but it is what makes the B.B. King tone what it is.
What amazes a lot of people about this guitar is the quality of the hardware that comes installed as standard from the factory. From the Grover tuners to the TP-6 Fine Tuning bridge and the Classic Alnico humbucking pickups, everything in this guitar has come straight from the top shelf. Not only does this guitar sound great but it is also incredibly tuning stable so you can rely on this guitar night after night.
