The Gibson Blues Master guitars are a line of Gibson Custom Made 2 Measure instruments that have been carefully spec’d by our very own Lee Anderton and Danish Pete. In a nutshell, they’re Andertons spec Gibson Custom Shop instruments.

These guitars have been spec’d by using the new Made 2 Measure ordering system which allows you to do things like – have a medium flame top (Ala 1958 Les Pauls) with a regular neck shape (Which would be akin to a 59 Les Paul neck).

This particular guitar has got a fat 58 neck with a heavy flame 59 Maple top in the stunning Lemon Burst finish. Though these guitars have no weight relief – just like the Les Pauls of old, they are made from lightweight Mahogany.

Pickups & Electronics

The pickups are the voice of an electric guitar and this was possibly the most important choice for us to make when spec’ing these guitars. We asked Danish Pete which pickups were his favourite from the Gibson Custom Shop and his choice was from their Collectors Choice #46. The Scott Bradoka pickups are fat and warm sounding PAFs with a top-mid harmonic sweet spot that just separated them from the rest.

We also decided to include a coil tap on the neck pickup volume control which reverses the neck pickup polarity. This gives you the famous ‘out-of-phase’ Peter Green Les Paul tone.

A touch of Gibson Custom Shop Class

The Blues Master range shows off Gibson’s constant strive to make the best quality guitars available today, through the use of numerous historically-accurate features to give you the best recreation of their guitars from the golden era. These include the following:

  • Aniline Dye
  • Full Hide Glue Construction
  • True Historic Parts & Plastics
  • Hand Sanded
  • Long Neck Tenon
  • Custom Shop Certificate of Authenticity

The Blues Master is the result of our love for Gibson Les Pauls, the blues, and the quest for the perfect tone. If you want to know more about this guitar, Gibson's Custom shop, or even the build processes involved, do not hesitate to get in touch!
