Music Man Luke III HH Black
Manufacturer's ID: 91401RR00
What we say:
Toto axe-slinger and session great Steve Lukather brings his considerable experience and expertise to this third generation of Luke signature guitars by Music Man.
The Luke III is a high performance instrument built to Lukather’s preferences, providing a fantastic platform for players of all stripes who regard function, quality and style to be equally important.
Loosely, the Luke III is a Superstrat with 2 DiMarzio humbuckers, a tremolo and some clever circuitry. Let’s take a closer look.
The Luke III’s Alder body is full of curves and contours, perfect for the lap or indeed a strap! This guitar is designed to go the distance and a big part of that is comfort.
Steve has opted for a roasted Maple neck, bringing a lovely touch and extra resonance to the deal. A 25.5” scale and 12” radius provide specs that lead players can really wail on. Lukather prefers wide frets with a low profile and they are a great choice on here, encouraging lots of expressive bends right across the neck. Superb.
The aforementioned pickups are Dimarzio Transitions, Lukather’s signature units. Simple and direct, these ceramic pickups have prominent Mids and a fairly high output. Versatility with an emphasis on muscle is the main theme here!
Music Man have included a custom boost circuit too. Located in the volume knob as a push/pull, engaging this boosts your gain for a hotter, more saturated sound that’s full of sizzle and sustain. This is perfect for solos.
A Music Man design tremolo adds to the versatility. Truly, there is not a style of music the Luke can’t attack with flair and verve. This particular guitar is available here in an excellent finish, Black. Players looking for a high quality, versatile instrument should seek this out straight away.
