The headstock does look longer (like the Cutlass and Stingray, but I can't tell for sure) and looks like flat (or matte?) black hardware. But it still looks like it says "LIII" on the headstock, doesn't it? The bound neck looks like what was on one of the one-off Cutlass guitars from NAMM. Looking at the edge of the headstock, it doesn't look like roasted maple. Have EBMM ever made an all-ebony neck? Or would it just be a finished neck?

This doesn't make me any more anxious for my new Luke3 to arrive at all!

Q: Hey man. Saw Lukather's new guitar with binding. It's a bad ass guitar. Was wondering if that is a new model and when you'd be able to get it.?

A: Luke's new guitar is SWEET. It has a bound neck, and is black with white grain fill. He just got it has been playing live. It will be available in stores May 1, and is limited to 300 instruments worldwide. Also includes an autographed certificate of authenticity.

Grain fill probably means mahogany body.

Sounds like this will be a one off PDN style release then akin to the True Gold? Which I still kick myself for not getting one.

Mahogany body?

If it's got stainless frets and an ebony board, then just go ahead and take my money now!!!

He played it tonight with the All-Starr band. I thought that looked like binding on the neck but wasn't sure.

Doesnt look like a neck through. Love the black hardware.
