Blacktop Mojo guitarist Ryan Kiefer was presented with a special gift at SXSW - Gold Top Les Paul.
Blacktop Mojo is a band that carries a true spirit of rock n’ roll. As such, they deserve a classic rock n’ roll guitar. Ryan Kiefer, guitarist of the band was presented with a gold top Gibson Les Paul at the Sunset Room at South by Southwest.
Kiefer gave a following statement: “I didn’t own a Les Paul until probably a year-and-a-half / two years ago. My band, Blacktop Mojo, we were recording in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, at Fame Studios and we were getting all kinds of tones, testing out different guitars and stuff like that.” Naturally, this led the six-stringer to pick up one of the most iconic instruments in rock history as he said, “Yeah, I’m going to go ahead and go with the Les Paul.”
