    Luke 2008 bfr differences from my 2016 bfr hh

    Besides pickups and roasted neck are the 2008 and 2016 bfr lukes the same?

    Not an expert but I believe the answer is no. Two different guitars, the Luke II BFR has the EMG and a smaller body as the BFR HH has the transition pups and a larger body. I think the neck profiles are the same or very close.

    My Luke II is a BFR Koa so that would be different from the maple topped ones as well. Hope this helps.

    The '08 Bahama Blue will definitely have the mahogany tone block.

    The new Luke III has some pretty significant changes, including a more stable roasted neck. The pickups went from EMG active pickups to Dimarzio passive pickups with an active preamp and a 15db boost. The active preamp in the newer Luke is also used to balance the volume between the single coil pickups and the humbucker giving the guitar a more balanced tone. The body of the guitar was increased in size a small amount. If you have any questions shoot me an email at customerexperience@ernieball.com
