Even when it comes to travel, these icons refuse to compromise on their need for luxury. And proving our point is legendary blues guitarist BB King who travels from one gig to another in a luxurious $1.4million motorcoach! Besides a luxury vehicle, this 45-foot long vehicle is also an electronic haven with more than $200,000 worth of electronics inside. The interiors of this plush motorcoach have been done by Superior Coach Interiors in Nashville, Tenn., while the electronics were installed by Digital Home Lifestyles of Phoenix, Ariz. The tour bus took 100 hours of design time and 300 hours of installation time to complete and boasts seven miles of cabling from Liberty Cable, five miles of Cat5 wiring, and 3,000 feet of CresNET. The coach is also equipped with a music and video server system that allows BB King to access a collection of more than 20,000 CDs, 6,000 DVDs, and VHS tapes. Roll over for more images……
