I purchased my Gibson Blues King back in 2003, it didn't seem to sound real good back then but it is sounding better and better as the years go by, WOW, I can't imagine how well this baby will be sounding after another 10 years,but I know I'll love it and so would you. It's so easy to chord, all strings ring out with over the board volume that is second to none. My Blues King is an Acoustic,vintage sunburst no pickups but I love it and wouldn't trade it for a new acoustic/electric today. Sometimes I play it an hour or so today about the same the next day, etc. and I rarely have to tune this guitar, I've owned dozens of guitars and I still do but the only guitar I'm picking on today is the Gibson Blues King. The only gripe I have with this purchase, Gibson put it in a gig-bag, very nice bag at that but buy a hard shell case when you purchase the Blues King. You can't go wrong on this Gibson Blues King, try one on for size, you'll love it, I guarantee.
I myself have several guitars (mostly classical and acoustic), but none of them can quite outweigh the punch of this Bluesking. (BluesQueen in my case, I called her Ella) This baby has a sweet small body, thin neck and great handling, which made it easier to for me to learn new techniques and play on it for hours at a time writing songs. My sweetheart is a vintage guitar, seeing she's had her twentieth birthday quite a while ago! (keeps getting better and better) I can honestly say it's a worthy investment. Although some people would call me rather young and unexperienced, I've been playing since I was six years old, and I have tried out numerous guitars. On this note, let me tell you this: I was saving up to buy a beautiful Gibson Hummingbird. But when I got to the shop, I tried it, and eventually decided not to buy this alltime classic. It just doesn't have the same punch! I think this is a great way to express just how great this guitar is. So please, do not hesitate: the Bluesking is an absolute must-have.
