Gibson Keb' Mo' Bluesmaster Acoustic-Electric GuitarThe Keb' Mo' Bluesmaster Acoustic Guitar has a classic Gibson L-00 body and custom herringbone top trim, recalling the instruments played by some of the first blues artists in the Deep South of the United States. The custom neck shape and wider nut width give the Bluesmaster guitar easy playability. Tonal enhancements are created by a customized thinner top made of Adirondack red spruce for singing tone and sustain.The Keb' Mo' acoustic guitar's carved French heel neck shape means easy finger reaching up the neck for those high notes and vibrato. The 12th fret is joined to the guitar body for a warmer resonant tone and added playing comfort. Gibson gives the Keb' Mo' Bluesmaster guitar a special darker vintage antiquing of its authentic nitro-lacquer finish. Other embellishments include a Keb' Mo' Signature truss cover and L.R. Baggs Element pickup with soundhole volume control. Includes case.Body WoodThe top of the Keb' Mo' Bluesmaster is made from 2 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 flattop acoustic guitar. The instrument's back and sides are made from solid mahogany.DesignThe Keb' Mo' Bluesmaster is made in the image of Gibson's small-bodied L-series guitars, such as the L-00. Its solid spruce top is sanded to a custom thickness and is supported by an X-brace pattern formed of scalloped spruce braces, all of which optimize its resonance and tonal richness. In the tradition of many small-bodied finger-style guitars, the Keb' Mo' Bluesmaster carries no pickguard, a feature which also further enhances the top's resonance.Tonal CharacteristicsDespite its small body dimensions, the Keb' Mo' Bluesmaster has a deep, rich, multidimensional tone, and a volume that belies its size. Its thin, lightly braced top aids its superb projection, while its solid mahogany back and sides add excellent definition and a velvety high-end shimmer to its tone.FinishThe Keb' Mo' Bluesmaster is available in either antique natural or vintage sunburst.ProcessThe Keb' Mo' Signature Bluesmaster is hand-finished in a process that demands several coats and many hours. Unlike many other manufacturers who settle for a polyurethane finish, Gibson opts for a nitrocellulose finish that will encourage the natural vibration of the instrument for a purer tone. In addition, a nitro finish is very porous and actually gets thinner over time. That way your guitar's wood can breathe and age beautifully.Neck WoodThe neck is made from quartersawn solid mahogany. The quartersawn grain orientation produces superior strength and resonance, and is preferred in the necks of high-end acoustic guitars.Truss RodGibson's traditional truss rod, found in most all of their guitars, is highly responsive to the individual adjustments you'll want to make to personalize and optimize string action and sustain.ProfileThe guitar's neck is carved to a custom Keb' Mo'-designed sculpted V profile.Headstock Shape and AngleThe headstock is carved in the style of Gibson's Advanced Jumbo with tapered edge, and is pitched at the vintage-correct 17-degree back angle.LogoThe Gibson logo is inlaid in mother of pearl across the top of the Keb' Mo' Bluesmaster's headstock, which also carries the traditional mother-of-pearl crown inlay. The truss rod cover is further engraved with Keb' Mo's signature.JointThe Keb' Mo' Bluesmaster's glued-in neck is attached with a compound dovetail joint, positioned at the 12th fret. This neck/body joint results in a bridge placement further into the center of the guitar's rounded lower bout, which perfectly hits the top's "sweet spot" for improved resonance and sustain.Tonal CharacteristicsThe angled, classical-style peg head and mahogany neck work together to provide exceptional tonal richness and sustain from the neck, while the deeper bridge placement—a result of the 12th fret neck/body joint—increases the guitar's overall sonic depth.Fingerboard SpeciesThe neck carries a fingerboard of East Indian rosewood. Rosewood is both hard wearing and sonically superlative, adding sweetness and depth to the guitar's overall sound.DimensionsThe Keb' Mo' Bluesmaster is built to a 25" scale length, and its fingerboard has a 12" radius. Combined with its 1.805" nut width, these dimensions offer plenty of room for popular traditional and contemporary blues styles with a string spacing that finger-style players in particular will appreciate, and no "dead' or "choked" strings during blues bends.FretsThe fingerboard carries 18 narrow, vintage-style frets in total, with 12 frets clear of the body.InlaysThe fingerboard is inlaid with vintage-style 1/4" mother-of-pearl dot position markers.Nut MaterialThe Keb' Mo' Bluesmaster has a genuine bone nut for optimum resonance and sustain.WidthThe width of the nut is approximately 1.805", the preferred width for flattop blues guitars.ElectronicsThe Keb' Mo' Bluesmaster carries a built-in L.R. Baggs Element pickup with a single volume control mounted inconspicuously in the edge of the sound hole and a standard 1/4" end-pin jack. The Element is an advanced unit from one of the world's leading acoustic-guitar pickup manufacturers, and it offers a broad, natural projection of the guitar's natural tone without interfering with the vibration of the top and bridge when it is played unplugged.Tuning KeysThe headstock carries vintage-style, open-back nickel tuners with an efficient 14:1 ratio for excellent tuning stability.BridgeThe Keb' Mo' Bluesmaster carries a traditional "belly down" bridge made from solid East Indian rosewood with traditional bridge pins and a solid bone bridge for enhanced sustain and resonance.Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.
