Body
Species
The top of the Keb’ Mo’ Bluesmaster is made from two pieces of solid Adirondack red spruce, a rare and highly prized tonewood that featured in the tops of many instruments from the golden age of the flat-top acoustic guitar. The instrument’s back and sides are made from solid mahogany. Body Species
Tonal Characteristics
Despite its small body dimensions, the Keb’ Mo’ Bluesmaster has a deep, rich, multi-dimensional tone, and a volume that belies its size. Its thin, lightly braced top aids its superb projection, while its solid mahogany back and sides add excellent definition and a velvety high-end shimmer to its tone.  
Design
The Keb’ Mo’ Bluesmaster is made in the image of Gibson’s small-bodied L-series guitars, such as the L-00. Its solid spruce top is custom sanded to its final thickness and supported by an X-brace pattern formed of scalloped spruce braces, all of which optimize its resonance and tonal richness. In the tradition of many small-bodied finger-style guitars, the Keb’ Mo’ Bluesmaster carries no pickguard, a feature which also further enhances the top’s resonance. Body Design

Process
The Keb Mo' Signature Blues Master gets it finish by hand in a process that demands several coats and many hours. Unlike many other manufacturers who settle for a polyurethane finish, Gibson opts for a nitrocellulose finish that will encourage the natural vibration of the instrument for a purer tone. In addition, a nitro finish is very porous and actually gets thinner over time. That way your guitar’s wood can breathe and age beautifully.
