The blues was born as an acoustic music style and its roots still reach back to that early connection. No artist embraces this ethos more than Keb' Mo', whose post-modern blues stylings stretch to fully electric blues, jazz, and R&B, while constantly referencing the Delta-fried, acoustic-fueled music that forms the beating heart of his inspiration. Gibson Acoustic honors this three-time Grammy Award Winner with the Keb' Mo' Bluesmaster, a flat-top acoustic guitar made in the tradition of the great small-bodied Gibson blues boxes with the added versatility of a built-in L.R. Baggs Element pickup with soundhole-mounted volume control.

Gibson's "L" series acoustic guitars were present at the birth of blues—played by the great blues originator Robert Johnson, among others. These are the inspiration behind the Keb' Mo' Bluesmaster, which adds a host of upgraded appointments to create an acoustic of optimum tone and performance for the contemporary player.

Crafted from two pieces of solid Adirondack red spruce, a rare and highly prized tonewood that featured in the tops of many instruments from the golden age of the flat-top acoustic guitar.

With a scalloped-X-braced top of solid Adirondack red spruce, solid mahogany back and sides, quarter-sawn solid mahogany neck, bone nut and saddle, and East Indian rosewood fingerboard and bridge, the Keb' Mo' Bluesmaster packs all the tonal nuance and sweetness you could hope for in a high-end, hand-crafted acoustic guitar. Vintage-spec touches, such as its 12th-fret neck-to-body joint—which positions the bridge right in the body's "sweet spot" for optimum resonance—put it on par with the best of Gibson's acoustics from the late '20s and early '30s. Finished in a choice of Antique Natural or Vintage Sunburst nitrocellulose finish (with double antiquing), cream top, back, and fingerboard binding, herringbone trim, mother of pearl inlays, and double-ring soundhole rosette, the Keb' Mo' Bluesmaster looks as sweet as it sounds.

The Gibson Keb' Mo' Bluesmaster features a traditional orange Gibson Acoustic Custom Shop label, a Gibson hardshell case, owner's manual and Gibson's Gold Warranty.

    Comments about Gibson Keb' Mo' Bluesmaster Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I was shopping for a parlor sized guitar and played at least 150 different guitars in the LA area while shopping. I ended up at Sam Ash in Hollywood and found the perfect instrument thanks to Scotty who was helping me out with the best customer service that I had experienced in a long time.

    The Gibson is pricey but you get something special when you get a good Gibson. The guitar was set-up properly right out of the box. (The action could be a tad lower but it's not something I need to run out and get down.) The guitar sounds like angels playing. The vibration against my chest and the sustain makes me excited to play. The guitar is light and easy to handle. The smaller scale makes it fun to play on the couch when hanging out. The Keb Mo is one of those guitars that feel like they play themselves. This one is a keeper and I've had many guitars that weren't.

    If you are looking for a small scale guitar then try one of these. Treat yourself to a special instrument. You'll be glad you did.
