    Question Luke and Luke III ???

    Do they still offer the original LUKE with the EMG pickups? Does the Luke III have an SMG option?
    I'm confused.... obviously!
    Thanks,

    Incidentally, the Luke currently available is actually the Luke II. The Luke I (which as also just called the Luke) had different EMG single coils, no tone control, and a Floyd Rose trem.

    I received my first L3 (HH) in January. Love it! The Transition humbuckers are off-the-charts great.

    I had an L3 with solid rosewood neck (HSS) it played like a dream! If it had a piezo I would have it at my house...

    I own one of each, Luke 1,II and III and my next one will be another Luke II, without a doubt. I love the smaller body, and the combination of EMG 85 with the SLVs make it my go-to guitar.

    That's interesting. I'll have to see if I can try a L2 out in person sometime. Not easy to come by locally.... Really enjoying my starry night. Haven't set it down or picked up anything else since it arrived.

    I have the L3. It became my #1 guitar after one show and I haven't looked back. All my other guitars are kinda jealous. lol
