The LIII is an “exciting culmination of past and present” design concepts, according to the Music Man website, and is fit with a new custom EBMM electronics package and limited to just 25 pieces worldwide. The highly exclusive signature sports a Bermuda Blue finish, a figured roasted maple neck, pearl inlays on the ebony fretboard, and a laser etched LIII logo on the headstock.
Typical Music Man technical quality characterises the rest of the guitar, featuring a brand new Ernie Ball Music Man custom bridge humbucker with an extra output in addition to the classic Cutlass single coils, paired with a five-way pickup selector with push/push volume control for gain boost.
Lukather is best known as the founding guitarist of Toto and a prominent collaborator on the second highest selling album of all time, Michael Jackson’s Thriller.
Ernie Ball Music Man is distributed in Australia through CMC Music.
