Maudie Moore was hired by Gibson Guitars in 1962 to do small piece work and soon branched out to engraving, which became a specialty for her over the next several decades.  In fact, she opened her own shop called Moore’s Engraving in Kalamazoo in 1972, which allowed her to work with several other companies over the years including C. F. Martin and Heritage Guitars.  Her special projects included the Gibson anniversary series with Les Paul and the BB King signature models known as “Lucille.”  Maudie’s great passion for her craft was clear in each and everyone of her projects.
