This amp was often used by BB King until he gave it to Eric Clapton's 2011 Crossroads auction. BB King used it also while playing at the 2007 & 2010 Crossroads Guitar Festival which Eric Clapton helds for Crossroads.
Lab Series L5, produced by Gibson in the 1970s, is best known as BB King's first choice amp on tour (the second choice being Fender Twin Reverb), and it has been associated with his signature sound from the 1970s to date. Clapton purchased this 'BB' model in the USA.
