What we say:

The Ball Family Reserve is for very short runs of instruments that are absolutely premium: the best possible woods, unusual finishes and an even greater level of hand-crafting than the usual high Music Man standards ensures an exclusive selection of unbeatable instruments with special provenance.

Session Ace and Toto lead guitarist Steve Lukather is a guitar player’s guitar player! His inimitable playing has appeared on countless records for more than three decades and for most of that he has relied on his signature LUKE guitars from Music Man.

Steve has enjoyed a few successive iterations of his signature model and this Limited Edition BFR model is a special version of the LUKE III, his most up to date design.

This LUKE has a Mahogany body topped with a striking top of Claro Walnut. The neck is a delicious piece of Roasted Maple (fast becoming a Music Man trademark) with a Rosewood fingerboard. As always, locking tuners and a 5 bolt neck join make this super-stable as well as incredible to the touch.

Music Man’s own design tremolo system offers a vintage feel with a wide travel and excellent tuning stability. Two DiMarzio Transition humbuckers (Lukather’s Signature model) give a warm and clear sound with PAF properties and a little heat for those blistering solos. A Music Man active preamp is included to for that little push over the cliff! This is selectable so you can choose when to kick it in via a push/push control on the volume pot.

This most impressive guitar is beautiful and special: it’s understated beauty is contrasted strongly by its powerful performance. Available in limited numbers for only a short time, grab yours while you can.
