I realize it is a ES355 or ES345 I am wondering about the "BB King" on the fretboard...seems to be very rare to find one like that for sale anywhere or any info.

Hi Jim. This appears to be a custom made Gibson "Super" Lucille. It differs from the normal Lucille by having BB's name on the fret board and with the main body of the guitar having gold flecks through the black. I think it was issued as a limted edition but have no details on that.

Interesting...I am not seeing any hint of the gold flecks though.
