I'm a B.B. King fan. I was introduce to B.B by U2 and their collaboration work on Rattle and Hum's "When love comes to town" I bought one of B.B.'s greatest hits compilation and fell in love with songs like How blue can you get and Why I sing the blues. From that moment on, Blues became my favorite style of music. In 2001, BB performed in Montreal, he was 75 years old at the time. He had to sit throughout the show because his knees were bad. He gave a great show I'll always remember. A few weeks before the show I wrote on his forum suggesting to add How blue can you get to the song list. I never got a reply to that post. At about the middle of the show, he started those few notes I knew by heart and played How Blue Can You Get. I was extatic. What a great man! Naturally, I always wanted a Lucille guitar and knew one day I would build one. Now that my CNC is ready and I'm gaining confidence, I started to work on a 3D model of the guitar and started to document the process in the DIY Shed. I decided to start a thread in the Home Depot. I will not do a ply construction. This will be carved. So in that respect, this thread will not be about proper construction technique. I will add personnal touches making this build my own tribute to B.B. This will be a lengthy thread with the end not even close to be in sight. I have a lot of work to do on the modeling side first. I enjoy Marty's and Robert's thread on how to model guitars for CNC work. It's been a great resources for me. Many friends here have helped me throughout my guitar and CNC building adventure and I owe them a great deal. This is my way of paying everyone back. I will therefore try to document as best as I can the process I'm using to create this wonderful guitar starting with the modeling itself. If you are not into 3D modeling, you'll find this boring. Keep in mind, this stuff is all new to me and I do not know what I'm doing. This will also be a learning experience for me.
