I wonder.... are the ones that used to be marked factory seconds now all ML's?
Now you've just given Pete an idea. Play a Murphy lab at each show and smash it to shit afterwards. Take a leaf out of Gene Simmons' book and arrange a presale for the remains.
May be just me but you would think that Gibson could make a better repair that that. It’s like they are proud of it or something.Apologies, I was just being daft suggesting it’s a new model. What it actually appears to be is a Murphy Lab SG/Les Paul custom that suffered a break at the factory and was then subsequently repaired, had a stinger added to it, and is now listed for sale... for too much money!
The weirdest thing about the situation is that Gibson is even selling a repaired headstock guitar instead of just declaring it a write-off.
Exactly my thought...Gibson would re-neck this guitar if a repair was the way to go......otherwise to the bandsaw.May be just me but you would think that Gibson could make a better repair that that. It’s like they are proud of it or something.
Of course, I appreciate that the Demo Shop is essentially an outlet for guitars that would in the past have been considered ‘seconds’, so maybe it’s a good thing that a perfectly serviceable instrument has been repaired instead of being run through the bandsaw and junked.
I’m just surprised Gibson is actually selling a guitar with a repaired headstock break instead of simply destroying it. I could be wrong, but I don’t think this has ever happened before in the company’s history.
