The guitar is a flat-top acoustic made in the tradition of the great small-bodied Gibson blues boxes. Gibson’s “L” series acoustic guitars were there at the very birth of the 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. Vintage specs include the 12th fret neck/body joint that positions the bridge right in the body’s “sweet spot” for optimum resonance. The guitar features the added versatility of a built-in L.R. Baggs Element pickup with soundhole-mounted volume control.

Finishes include Antique Natural or Vintage Sunburst with double antiquing. The guitar has cream top, back and fingerboard binding, herringbone trim, mother-of-pearl inlays and double-ring soundhole rosettes. It comes with a Gibson hardshell case, an interior label personally signed by Keb Mo himself, an owner’s manual and Gibson Acoustic’s Gold Warranty. The Keb Mo Signature model is available in a limited edition of 300. MSRP is $3,868 USD.

No other musician today embraces the blues like the legendary Keb Mo. His post-modern 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 Gibson Acoustic Keb Mo Blues Master model honors the three-time Grammy Award winner.
