2010 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 to Gibson’s attention to detail, from the script Gibson headstock logo and the rectangular bridge, to the tortoiseshell pickguard, and a simply stunning sunburst, 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 a 10 year old guitar it’s in very good condition, with no cracks or repairs, just some wear on the corners of the headstock. The guitar has an active under saddle pickup fitted with volume control mounted inside the soundhole, and comes in it’s original Gibson embossed deluxe gig bag.
