GJ2 Guitars Releases the Triple M Mick Murphy Signature Model

GJ2 Guitars Releases the Triple M Mick Murphy Signature Model

Created by Grover Jackson the GJ2 Triple M features dual humbuckers and a hardtail bridge.

Anaheim, CA (March 19, 2014) -- Guitars debuts its new “Triple M” guitar (aka the “Mick Murphy Model”) in honor of heavy metal guitarist Mick Murphy (of My Ruin and Chevy Metal).

The new GJ2 Mick Murphy Model is a stripped-down, straight-ahead rock machine that looks and plays like a rocket. Specially created by Grover Jackson for the “Master of Heaviosity,” the guitar bears Mick’s trademark =MM= signature and features two humbuckers with a hard-tail bridge, making it ideal for high-octane tuned-down riffing. The Triple M will be offered in new colors exclusive to the model. The design traces its roots back to the dawn of the ‘80s with the iconic collaboration between Grover Jackson and Randy Rhoads that became the original “RR” model (later evolving into the GJ2 Concorde), and first inspired Mick Murphy to take up the guitar.

The veteran fingerstylist and songwriter—who’s had his songs covered by Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, and others—ponders the existential while celebrating the earthly. He also talks about the trajectory of his six-decades-long career, and how he learned to stop doing what’s unnecessary.

Now well into his sixth decade as a performer, with more than 20 albums behind him, singer-songwriter Chris Smither is doing some of his finest work. His vivid lyrics and resonant baritone on his new recording, All About the Bones, are elevated by his inimitable guitar style.
