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.

Guitars are the best. We love them. It’s fun to fall in love with a guitar at a store, buy it, and proudly bring it home. But we’ve all been there … where after a month that new guitar is just not playing as good as it was before. As guitar players, we know what feels good and what feels bad when it comes to playability. Maybe you have setup preferences that you like on all your guitars, or maybe you want to experiment with changes to your setup?
