|Comments||This is a very fun little 2005 Gibson Blues King. The Blues King is based on the L-00 body style, and is very well suited to fingerstyle blues and ragtime playing styles.
Built with a Sitka spruce top and African Bubinga back and sides, it has a warm, even tone with a surprising amount of projected volume.
This example from 2005 is in great playing condition with some honest play wear marks on the top, and a small ding at the edge of the lower treble bout. It was built in the Gibson Acoustic plant in the very scenic town of Bozeman, Montana, under the eye of Ren Ferguson.
