Yes! I don't know what it is, but I'd guess it's a National.

I saw him a couple years ago at the House of Blues. Just him and a guy that
accompanied him on guitar and a few other instruments. He was fantastic, a
natural live performer. Played great and really knew how to work the crowd.

You should try to rent or otherwise obtain this DVD by Keb Mo:

A great performance both with a full band and some stuff he does solo. He
can play some mean blues on a standard tuned electric in addition to his
acoustic Delta blues style stuff.

Sorry G:, I caught that info in a post I read later. As it happens, I think
you're spot on. If you're going to keep it, then a value reduction means
absolutely nothing and it looks very beautiful in its new suit of clothes.
