2003 Gibson Blues King – £1399
NEW ARRIVAL The Gibson Blues King is a reissue of one of the most iconic blues guitars ever – the Gibson L-00. A great example of Gibson’s attention to detail, from the script Gibson headstock logo and the rectangular bridge, to the tortoiseshell pickguard, and a particularly rare black finish, this guitar really looks the part. With Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides, plus the old style narrow shouldered 00 size body, this guitar is made to play the blues, although the X bracing adds to the guitar’s versatility. The guitar has a warm, mellow tone, suited for both fingerstyle and soloing, as well as light strumming. As an 18 year old guitar it’s in good, played condition, with no cracks or repairs, just some lacquer checking on the headstock. The guitar comes with an EMG soundhole pickup (which I’ve removed for the photos), and comes in it’s original Gibson embossed deluxe gig bag.
