Any ideas? There are no other clear shots in the video (promoting the new Toto album).
Not sure who made it. Nice straight string pull on that headstock though!
I don't believe so (although those do look great).
I'll ask him and post the answer here.
If he has changed brands this is surprising.
He has been with Music Man a long time.
The video is about 99% Music Man, so I don't think this is a brand switch.
He's not changing brands. In fact, we're launching a giveaway with Luke, Ernie Ball and Music Man this coming week.
I'll know tomorrow when I communicate with him.
That's a Veillette-Citron logo. Check here for reference:
Thanks, pukko. I googled "VC guitars" and "CV guitars," both of which turned up results, just not the right one.
That's 50 lashes from Sterling though lol.
At least 100 .
Don't put this on the Musicman forum it will probably last 30 sec
Some clips of that Luke pedal would be appreciated too!
That is not the normal Veillette Citron guitar or bass headstock.
That is a very rare Veillette Citron Shark Baritone.
Probably why he gets a pass on playing it....a baritone.
I have several V-C Basses, which is why I'm familiar with them.
They built some great stuff in their brief 5 or six year existence....around 500 instruments total.
Joe Veillette and Harvey Citron are still building, each under his own name, up in Woodstock NY area.
Certainly NOT a brand switch, as Veillette Citron went out of business around 1984.
looks like a baritone to me... so not his usual ride.
Cant blame a man for playing the field.
I think it is a Music Man, but not a Luke III. He mentioned in one of his gear demo vids that he's going back to a more organic setup, including simple twin passive humbuckers.
Luke is gonna fool around and lose his endorsement.
Maybe that's the intent. Dude must have a warehouse of EBMM's by now.
The guy needs no endorsement. He's in half of all the recordings ever done practically...
