    ...and that "V" neck!
    All that played it at NAMM were quite impressed that we nailed the feel!

    Vintage Trem set to Luke's personal specs. Step and a half pulls or full dives. Really smooth feel, accurate tuning stability.
    It's really a treat to play this model!

    This is Luke's personal LK100D we are sending him today.

    Luke and I at the photo session for the LK100D. He was kind enough to fit a photo session in for us during Toto's rehearsals last year before they hit the road.
    A consummate professional, amazing guitarist, and a great personality: we are so proud to have Luke onboard with Sterling By Music Man!

    I got to try these out at NAMM and by golly it felt like a MM Luke was in my hands.

    SBMM nailed this one, glad we have a few on order.
    Have you got G.A.S. for another EBMM???

    EBMM - a guitar like no other.
    Even we mancave noodlers can appreciate the perfection that is an EBMM guitar.

    Nice loooking axe, can't wait to try one...that V looks pretty pronounced to me, whereas the necks on both my Lukes aren't that pronounced...anyone who already played it can shed some light to this? Maybe it's only because of the satin finish it looks that way.

    Nice! Congrats on SBMM for the addition.
    "Welcome to the addiction!" is now patented by Koogie2k......if used by anyone other than Koogie2k....you must mail him a US nickel for each time said/typed or signed.......

    It felt very much like my DD Luke - a noticeable V shape without being sharp.

    Hey Pete - do you have any EBMM guitars with the more C-shaped neck with which you could do a side by side comparison picture of the neck profile with one of those Lukes? Like a Morse or a Reflex?
