Gibson Acoustic announced the availability of the long awaited Keb Mo Signature Acoustic Blues Master guitar. No other musician embraces the blues like the legendary Keb Mo. His post modern playing blues styling stretches to fully electric blues, jazz, and R&B while constantly referencing the Delta fueled acoustic music that forms the beating heart of every one of his inspirations. The blues was born as acoustic music and its roots still run deep in that direction today. Gibson Acoustic has taken the sounds, the tradition and the history of blues music and produced an acoustic model that will inspire musicians throughout the ages.
The Gibson Acoustic Keb Mo Blues Master model honors the three-time Grammy Award winner. The guitar is a flat-top acoustic made in the tradition of the great small bodied Gibson blues boxes with the added versatility of a built-in L.R. Baggs Element pick up with sound hole mounted volume control. The Keb Mo Signature model is available in a limited edition of only 300. Gibson’s “L” series acoustic guitars were there at the very birth of blues played by the great blues originator Robert Johnson, among others. This inspiration follows through with the Keb Mo Blues Master. The model packs all of the tonal nuance and sweetness you could hope for in a high-end, hand-crafted acoustic guitar while vintage specs include the 12th fret neck/body joint that positions the bridge right in the body’s “sweet spot” for optimum resonance. The new model is reminiscent of the best of acoustic guitars from the 20s and early 30’s. Finishes include Antique Natural or Vintage Sunburst with double antiquing. The guitar has a cream top, back and fingerboard binding, herringbone trim, mother of pearl inlays and double-ring soundhole rosettes. It comes with a Gibson hardshell case, a personally signed interior label by the artist Keb Mo himself, an owner’s manual and Gibson Acoustic’s Gold Warranty. MSRP is $3,868 USD.
