Gibson have created a fantastic new acoustic Blues guitar called the “Bluesmaster” to honor the great Keb’ Mo’.
Here’s the celebration of Keb’ Mo’ (aka Kevin Moore) from Gibson.com:
The blues was born as an acoustic music, and its roots still run deep in that direction today. No artist embraces this ethos more than Keb’ Mo’, whose post-modern blues stylings stretch to fully electric blues, jazz, and R&B, while constantly referencing the Delta-fried, acoustic-fueled music that forms the beating heart of his inspiration.
Now Gibson Acoustic honors this three-time Grammy Award Winner with the Keb’ Mo’ Bluesmaster, a flat-top acoustic guitar made in the tradition of the great small-bodied Gibson blues boxes, with the added versatility of a built-in L.R. Baggs Element pickup with soundhole-mounted volume control, and available in a strictly Limited Edition of 300 guitars.
The Bluesmaster is a celebratory guitar and it is a delight that Gibson is so forwardly honoring the great Blues tradition in the acoustic form.
The Bluesmaster lists for $4,000.00USD, but will we be lucky enough to find one for a street price under $3,000.00USD? We can only keep hoping!
