2016 Gibson Keb Mo – £2299
NEW ARRIVAL Gibson’s Custom Shop teamed up with three-time Grammy Award Winner Keb’ Mo’ to produce a modern blues guitar that references the Delta blues music that is the heart of his inspiration. The guitar features a scalloped-X-braced Adirondack Red Spruce top with Mahogany back and sides, quarter-sawn Mahogany neck, bone nut and saddle, and East Indian Rosewood fingerboard and bridge. The guitar packs all the tonal nuance and sweetness you could hope for in a high-end, hand-crafted acoustic guitar. Vintage-spec touches, such as its 12th-fret neck-to-body joint-which positions the bridge right in the body’s “sweet spot” for optimum resonance-put it on par with the best of Gibson’s acoustics from the late ’20s and early ’30s. Finished with a Vintage Sunburst nitrocellulose finish (with double antiquing), cream top, back, and fingerboard binding, herringbone trim, mother of pearl inlays, and double-ring soundhole rosette, the guitar looks as sweet as it sounds. The guitar’s in excellent condition, features an L.R. Baggs Element pickup with soundhole mounted volume and tone controls, and comes in it’s original hard case.
