Vintage styling but forward thinking, the Gibson Keb Mo Blues Master is an acoustic guitar which truly celebrates blues culture and tradition. Endorsed by Keb' Mo', the Grammy award winning blues musician, you can be assured this flat-top guitar will give you great tone with some surprising versatility and modern edge thanks to the on-board L.R. Baggs pickup system.
This acoustic guitar features a rare and historically accurate Adirondack red spruce top, popular around the time guitars like the Gibson Keb Mo Blues Master spurred blues music on and helped it to evolve. Stiffer and stronger than other spruce varieties seen much more today (such as Englemann or Sitka), this tone wood will help you to recreate that authentic Delta sound craved by many. The shape of the body is a reference to Gibson "L" series acoustic guitars. This small body shape encourages a focused tone that was and is still perfect for the type of tone blues players look for in an acoustic guitar. Mahogany back and sides support the choice of a spruce top wonderfully and the internal spruce bracing makes for a tonally and structurally sound guitar with amazing resonance.
Joining the body at the 12th fret, another influence from years-gone-by, is carved into a carefully shaped "V" profile. A dot-inlay adorned rosewood fingerboard looks and feels great alongside the mahogany neck, leaving you wanting to play this guitar time and time again.
Hardware and Electronics
A "belly down" solid rosewood bridge helps to further cement the fabulous tone created by the rest of this guitar and keeps everything secure thanks to the traditional bridge pins. More vintage styling appears at the top of the headstock with the tuning keys. The open-back design is made from Nickel and features a 14:1 ratio, providing great stability. An L.R. Baggs Element is discreet in every sense of the word and outputs excellent tone. Discreet class A electronics and a small volume control mounted inside the soundhole assist in helping you achieve excellent amplified tone.
