I have had a number of these EBMM Luke III guitars and each one has been exceptional. In my mind, there isn’t a better rock guitar on the market. The necks are incredibly fast and smooth (as well as beautiful) and the sparkle finish is a home run. I can’t say enough good things about the Luke III model.



Steve Lukather’s intense, melodic playing style is influenced as much by early blues-rock pioneers like Hendrix and Page as it is by jazz fusion masters like Di Meola and Gambale. And Ernie Ball Music Man’s Luke III is a guitar worthy of the Steve Lukather name. This axe combines easy playability and rock-solid reliability, as evidenced by its comfortable double-cut alder body, vintage floating tremolo, and Schaller locking tuners. The Luke III boasts top-shelf tonewoods, with a rosewood fingerboard and roasted figured maple neck. Plus, it’s equipped with three creamy custom-wound Music Man pickups and an active preamp with a +12dB boost that’s guaranteed to launch your leads into the stratosphere. No matter what style of music you play, the Luke III will elevate your playing.

Active preamp gives you a +12dB boost

The Luke III’s double-cutaway design gives you plenty of access across the fretboard to put its custom-wound Music Man humbucker and two custom-wound Music Man single-coil pickups to work. It’s easy to breathe life into your playing with these passive pickups, but the Luke III gives you even more control with its Ernie Ball Music Man active preamp. From ear-splitting leads to cream-covered rhythms, these pickups deliver, and with a +12dB boost when you need it, complete tonal control is within arm’s reach.

Incomparable roasted maple neck

The Ernie Ball Music Man Luke III’s roasted maple neck features 22 frets, a 25.5-inch scale, and 12-inch neck radius. Its gunstock oil and hand-rubbed wax finish is unlike any other neck you’ll play. There’s no stickiness to slow you down and the natural woodiness makes the instrument feel like an extension of your hand. Along with its double-cutaway body style, the overall fluidity of this guitar’s neck is extraordinary in all regards.

Floating tremolo and Schaller locking tuners for perfect pitch

With the Luke III’s Ernie Ball Music Man floating vintage tremolo, you’ll get in tune and stay there. This vintage-style tremolo is constructed of chrome-plated hardened steel with bent steel saddles. The guitar’s headstock is adorned with Schaller M6 locking tuners that make string changing a cinch. Just insert the string, tighten the clamp screw, and tune it up to pitch. Strings won’t be wound around the shaft so your tuning will be reliable, no matter how hard you play. The guitarists here at Sweetwater swear by the performance and reliability of Music Man instruments, and the Luke III is no exception.
