Steve Lukather guitar

Ernie Ball Music Man commemorates the 30th anniversary of partnership with Grammy award-winning composer and Toto guitarist/co-founder Steve Lukather, by introducing the 30th Anniversary L4 Guitar.


Steve Lukather L4 Maple Top 30th Anniversary 

Featuring a Steamroller Walnut Burst satin finish, this anniversary edition combines a beautiful flame maple top seated in an exotic Black Limba body with a figured roasted maple neck and ebony fingerboard. The Ernie Ball Music Man designed HT HSS pickups deliver an incredibly dynamic and responsive playing experience and can achieve an ultra-high-output, powerful low-end response while retaining a distinctively clean, clear tone at lower volume levels. Also unique to this limited edition model is a Music Man double locking tremolo.

This anniversary L4 HSS shares many of the standard specifications of the previous Luke guitars, including a double-cut contoured body, a roasted maple neck with 22 nickel frets, 5-way switching, an adjustable 12dB boost, and Music Man's double locking tremolo. Each guitar includes a tremolo cover personally signed by Steve Lukather, a certificate of authenticity, and a Mono case.
