The new Keb’ Mo’ J-45 is the follow-up to Keb’s popular original L-00 signature guitars, and it offers a rich, bright tone and full, and tight bass.
The guitar features a thermally aged Sitka spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and a 25” scale mahogany neck with a rosewood fretboard, custom Keb’ Mo’ profile, and open-back Grover tuners. The neck joins the body at the 12th fret, giving this guitar the rounder, more full-bodied tone, and exceptional playing comfort that only a 12-fret neck can provide. Equipped with L.R. Baggs electronics, it’s studio and stage-ready, the moment you take it out of the included hardshell case.
“This J-45 guitar is a great acoustic workhorse which offers a richer, brighter, sound that delivers tight bass tones that record beautifully with a microphone, or a pick-up,” says Keb’ Mo’. “The Gibson team has worked hard to make this guitar great and I’m out on the road now playing it every night. This is a quality guitar from Gibson, a brand you can trust.”
With five GRAMMYs, 14 Blues Foundation Awards, and a groundbreaking career spanning nearly 50 years under his belt, Keb’ Mo’s soulful vocals and masterful guitar-playing never fail to inspire. A respected guitarist, songwriter, and arranger, Keb has topped the Billboard Blues Chart seven times. His most recent album, Good To Be, is available everywhere.
