Gibson Keb’ Mo’ Signature Bluesmaster

Today, we are proud to feature the new Gibson Keb’ Mo’ Signature Bluesmaster. Built in a limited run of 300, this guitar is built in the tradition of the classic small body Gibsons of the 1920s and ’30s. As a Grammy Award winner, Keb’ Mo’s musical range demands a guitar that is as expressive and versatile as he is. After spending some time with the guitar, I must say how pleasantly surprised I am with the responsiveness of the Keb’ Mo’ Bluesmaster. Gibson has made all the right design choices to bring as much sound out of a small bodied guitar as possible.

The Adirondack Red Spruce top brings the Keb’ Mo’ Bluesmaster to life, with a clear note fundamental and full projection. The Mahogany back, sides, and neck all bring sweetness to the midrange and a full sustain to the lower frequencies. The 12th fret neck joint position also adds to the lower registers, giving the guitar a lot more power than one would expect. Overall, this guitar is a mean little blues machine!
