Lucille’s beginnings date to 1949, when King, then in his early 20s, was performing at a nightclub in Twist, Arkansas, in the dead of winter. To heat the cold room, King recalled in a video interview, they would take something that looked like a big garbage pail, half fill it with kerosene, light that fuel set it in the middle of the dance floor. The original Lucille - the guitar King rescued that night in the fire - was an inexpensive, small-bodied Gibson L-30 archtop. In 2005, Gibson produced an 80th Birthday model Lucille for the bluesman, which he summarily adopted as his main stage instrument - until, in the summer of 2009, it was stolen. But a few months later, a guitar trader and appraiser named Eric Dahl came across this very Lucille in a Las Vegas pawn shop.

Only one guitar in the history of modern music is so well known that it could have been double billed at a show with the man who played it: Lucille, the guitar of the King of Blues himself. As some of you may know, Lucille was not just one guitar but rather a name passed down through generations of Mr. King’s collection of touring guitars. The name was first bestowed upon his guitar after a wild and life-changing night in the winter of 1949. In King’s autobiography, Blues All Around Me, he describes a fight that broke out while he was playing a house party in Twist, Arkansas
With his trusty Gibson guitar Lucille, King developed his audiences in stages, connecting with African-Americans region by region in the 1950s and '60s, breaking through to the American mainstream in the '70s and becoming a global ambassador for the blues soon thereafter, becoming the first blues musician to play the Soviet Union. King Rushed to Las Vegas Hospital: Report. King had a 40-year stretch on the Billboard 200 with 33 titles charting. His 2000 album with Eric Clapton, Riding With the King, hit No. 3, King’s chart peak. On his own, King hit the top 40 twice: 1970’s Indianola Mississippi Seeds, which followed the album that included The Thrill is Gone, Completely Well, hit No. 26, and Live In Cook County Jail reached No. 25 a year later. He had tears in his eyes because the audience, as soon as . came out on stage, just stood up and gave him a standing ovation.
