THE BLUESMASTER, the original St. Blues model, a unique body shape so perfect it seems to always have existed. The body is select-grain, double bound with string through body, custom single coils (can be tapped or untapped) and a 25.5 inch scale.
This is a 1986 Tom Keckler built and owned St. Blues guitar. This is a true vintage guitar. This guitar shreds and is in good condition. It features a rosewood fingerboard, Kahler locking tremolo, and all the Memphis mojo. Get this rare beauty before it is gone.
All though this guitar is not a St. Blues, it is a Strings & Things Custom, made here in Memphis,TN. We believe this guitar was made in the early 1980's. It is all original except the pin striping on the body.

When we set out to build these instruments, we took what we knew about manufacturing high quality boutique guitars and put that into our Roots instruments. Using the same Rock Maple we use on our custom guitars, so the neck doesn't warp like many less expensive models, an oversized piezo pickup and a real bone nut are just a few of the upgrade that make our cigar box guitars some of the best built. The tuning of the 4 string low to high is G,D,G,B.
