    A Second L-III Prototype!!

    I just saw this on youtube and took a quick screen grab.
    Luke seems to be favoring the Dual Humbucker proto, we haven't
    seen much of this one yet.

    I'm not sure if you meant L-III or II but I am pretty sure this is a III proto.
    They have said that the Luke II isn't going to change so he wouldn't be testing for that guitar.

    They might release a 2 L-III (passive), 1 with a humbucker and 2 singles and 1 with 2 humbuckers, there are sounds on Lukes songs and Toto songs that would need a single coil. But i think it's time to widen the Lukes (guitar) range, some people love the Luke, but want 2 humbuckers, so this could possibly increase interest and sales.

    No I believe thats the III as Sterling stated Luke changed his mind about going with the reverse headstock, and the guitar seems a bit bigger. He sure seems to be busy working over every configuration, I think this will be some guitar and their is also something about a push button I believe on the tone knob. My guess would be to split the humbucker, or maybe even a few tone options.

    That's a cool feature. I hope it's different from the Luke II but very similar at the same time lol

    I don't think there's any way to be clear about anything.

    It's just a prototype at this stage, right? I'm sure BP will let us all know the deets one the guitar makes its way to production, assuming it does.
