Put up here is Greco's thorough replica of Gibson 345, so called BB King Lucille model. The most distinguishable feature of this series is Varitone Switch, which enables you to express 6 different tone from the preset tonality palette.

This guitar is in phenomenal condition. Played by the only one owner since 1979. Absolutely no scratch no ding no dents whatsover.

I ship this guitar from Tokyo Japan to worldwide. Price: USD 990 + shipping fee.

Um, Lucille was actually a 355, then in 1980 Gibson made BB a custom 355 with a couple of special features: no f holes, a maple neck and a TP-6 fine tune tailpiece.

All the other 355 specs (gold hardware, block inlays, multi ply bound body and headstock, varitone and ebony fret board) are present on the BB model.

Sure BB played a 345 along with dozens of other guitars early on but by the early 60s he was set on his Gibson 355 with rags stuffed in the f-holes. That guitar was burnt in a fire IIRC.

I like 345s better to be honest, they look better and your one is no exception!

Are the inlays real mother of pearl?
