    B.B. King's Many Lucilles

    Often people refer to Lucille, as in BB King's guitar, as if there was ever only one Lucille.
    They do this the same way people refer to a singular guitar that is iconic in an association with a specific guitar player--like Eric Clapton's Blackie or Brownie.

    But there have been many Lucilles.

    BB King didn't just call one guitar Lucille--if he owned it & played it--it was called Lucille...

    Nothing wrong with that--just something that leads to the article...

    Both are nice--and since the P-90s make it a different animal--hey--if you can save up the cash--get both...
    Although I'd prefer a P-90 in the neck & a humbucker in the bridge.
    But the Lucille has some different tone settings--so you can get a variety of sounds--at least the Gibson version did...

    That's why when I nodded my LP copy I put a PRail in the neck & a JB in the bridge
