    I知 torn

    I知 looking at Lukes and I used own one of the true gold Luke痴 with rosewood necks years ago and sold it. One has come up for sale and I知 torn between buying that or a Luke 3. I know I can get a Luke 3 anyway but the true golds don稚 come up for sale often . What do you guys think ?

    Well that's a tough one, the Olive Gold are cool, but the True Gold is pretty nice as well. I guess it comes down to which pickups are going to work best for you? Or get them both .

    yes both crossed my mind but that would be expensive. I like the emg set I have a set in an old strat. ive never tried the transition pickups.

    Sounds like you might need to see what Pete has in stock and take a little trip over to Conn.

    No worries at all However the guitar doesn’t exist without pictures!!!!!

    There was a black L3 on reverb with a rosewood neck for a decent hope you grabbed that. I looked at that one too.

    Yes sir! That would be the one. Been waiting for an Olive Gold to pop up at a price point I feel is worth it but nada. Good luck on the True Gold... Beautiful color!

    Will def post pics once in my possession

    My vote is True Gold because of the rosewood neck. I'll have a few of the new L3 colors arriving in a couple weeks.
    Have you got G.A.S. for another EBMM???

    TRUE GOLD is an incredible color. Honestly much better than "Tumescent", which Is a color I don't understand at all.

    Colour aside, I've tried and owned a "regular" luke III, a bfr luke III and 3 (long story) Olive Gold Luke III and these always sounded better to my ears. Probably a bit sweeter. (Which may not be what others prefer.) This Olive Gold-rosewood neck combo has some dark magic built into it!
