POST # 639 EBAY PRICE GUIDE : 1999 GIBSON BLUESHAWK " LITTLE LUCILLE"
Blinged up Blueshawk from 1999, only year of its production according to the seller. Looks like a great player, light easy to carry. Scroll down to see how much it sold for. Here's the blurb from the seller.
Here is another example of my personal collection of vintage and classic Gibson guitar that I am selling because I want to down-size a little before I retire. This guitar is VERY hard to find in any condition, much less in Excellent condition!! In all the years I have been collecting, this is the first and only Little Lucille that I have been able to acquire. So, What is a Little Lucille? It was a product of the Hawk series of guitars from Gibson that began with the Night Hawk in 1993. Then expanded the series with the BluesHawk in 1996. In 1999 Gibson came out with a smaller version of the then famous "Lucille" played by BB King. This guitar is a BluesHawk all dressed up!! The Little Lucille, unlike the regular BluesHawk, featured cream colored binding on both the body and the neck, gold colored Grover tuners,a brass truss cover that was engraved with "BB KING", a gold colored postion indicator around the selector switch and the same gold colored bridge as found on the the full sized Lucille. As far as I can determine this guitar was only sold in Ebony finish. Although some scources indicate that a wine color may have been on the drawing table at Gibson. If you need more info search Google
This guitar is a 1999 model (first year of release and possibly the only year according to some scources) and is in outstanding condition.It falls short of Mint condition because it shows some Very light scraches on the front near the F hole and some light pick marks (visable in the photos). The scratches are very fine and barely into the finish (looks like something brushed against it). I was going to have them buffed out but did not want change the guitar in any way. In all other respects the body is very clean and shows only normal wear and my fingerprints,which will be gone when you get it!!!. NO buckle rash on the backside. The neck is excellent and shows VERY little, if any wear to the fret board or frets. The electronics are in working order and the single coil pickups produce that sound that only comes from a Gibson. NOT the original case but rather, a 1990's era, Gibson Hard shell case which is in great conditon, This your opportunity to own a piece of American musical history.
