The Gibson Blues King is a classic six-string acoustic guitar that has a unique look and sound because of the quality materials it's constructed with. A high-quality model, the guitar has a 14-fret body style and a Sitka spruce top and Mahogany neck that has an extremely comfortable feel to it. To go with the exotic African bubinga back and sides, the instrument has a Rosewood fingerboard and headplate. Based on older models from the early 1900s' and designed to represent the old blues and roots guitarists, the acoustic guitar also uses an L.R. Baggs Element Active Acoustic Pickup system.
