The Luke III Ball Family Reserve is the next evolution in the design process started with the original Luke model some 22 years prior. Addressing Steve's performance needs as a touring guitarist has been critical in the development of this new edition. The added mahogany tone block, on-board 12db adjustable boost, beautifully figured A++ maple top and roasted birdseye maple neck have refined this new signature edition into an instrument of superior tone and versatility.
