Introducing the "Triple M" (Mick Murphy Model) Signature Guitar!

(Photo by Gary Bandfield | Tour Bus Live)
Introducing the "Triple M" (Mick Murphy Model) signature guitar

 specially created by legendary guitar designer Grover Jackson for GJ2 Guitars!

“My GJ2 guitars are so awesome that I no longer want to play anything else. The rock-solid tone, relentless sustain, singing clarity, and amazing feel of instruments crafted with pride by the master (Grover Jackson) make them the best guitars I’ve ever had the pleasure of playing. I’m proud to be a part of the GJ2 family.” – Mick Murphy 

 The new GJ2 Mick Murphy model is a stripped-down, straight-ahead rock machine that looks and plays like a rocket. Made for the “Master of Heaviosity” and bearing a likeness of his trademark =MM= signature, it features a single humbucker with a hard-tail bridge, making it ideal for high-octane, tuned-down riffing. The =MM= will be offered in new colors exclusive to the model. The design is based on the iconic collaboration between Grover Jackson and Randy Rhoads from the dawn of the ‘80s that became the original “RR” model (later evolving into the GJ2 Concorde, which first inspired Mick Murphy to take up the guitar. A longtime favorite in Mick’s guitar collection has been his vintage 1980s-era “RR” Jackson model made by Grover Jackson. Now he’s excited to play this updated version—bearing his own initials—made using modern production methods by the original designer himself.

 The new signature guitar was unveiled at the 2014 NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) convention during the Media Preview Day event at the Anaheim Convention Center. Mick Murphy and GJ2 co-founder Jon Gold presented the guitar on stage for the assembled press and Mick demonstrated it at the  GJ2  booth. Check it out: 

Audio Fanzine also posted some cool footage from the NAMM Preview event:

"There are not too many true guitar heroes around these days but Mick Murphy is one of the few. We love his work with My Ruin and Chevy Metal and we are really proud to have him playing our guitars." - Grover Jackson | GJ2 Guitars
"There are a few reasons that we have welcomed Mick into the GJ2 team. When you hear him play, the first reason is obvious, he rocks! Then there is the simple fact that we like him. It is refreshing to get the chance to work with someone who is totally committed to, and passionate about his craft and yet is down to earth and easy to get on with. He gives us great “real world” feedback about our guitars. We know that our work together will be long term and mutually fruitful.” – Jon Gold | GJ2 Guitars
"Even after the fevered buildup from friends about this guitarist Mick Murphy, he still managed to wildly surpass expectations. Mick blends a sense of rock musicality with precision, raw power, and riveting showmanship. Prepare to be blown away."
-Mitch Devine | GJ2 Guitars
"I've seen & heard Mick Murphy play the guitar, and seriously he's freaking incredible. It makes perfect sense that he plays a GJ2. Dude shreds.”Tom Dumont | No Doubt

Happy Birthday to The King of Rock & Roll! 

In honor of today, 
here is a little teaser from our soon to be released hard cover book about the making of 
"The Sacred Mood".

Since we covered "Trouble" by Elvis on our new album, I wanted to recreate a classic photograph from his infamous "68 Comeback Special" as an art piece for our new book so I asked the talented Miss Kayleigh Brookes (who designed our album cover with me) to work her magic once again and together we came up with this red lipstick twist!

New BGD Collection Coming Soon!

(Self Portrait)

 For those who have written asking...

Yes, I have closed my online store for the moment. I am currently busy putting the finishing touches on my new Blasphemous Girl Designs collection which I will be debuting very soon, so stay tuned for the big re-launch because you do not want to miss this one!
I have spent the past 2 months quietly creating the last of my dark magic for the year in the form of custom sacred adornments for your fingers, neck and soul along with 4 new and invoking signature oil & solid perfume limited edition sets with scents inspired by songs on our new album  'Heretic Dreams', 'Moriendo Renascor', 'Hour Of The Wolf' & 'Insomniac Moon'. I have also brought back to life a blood red personal favorite scent of mine 'Sacred Mood' which has been requested by many who missed out on it last time.

NOTE: Many of my custom pieces and perfumes sell out very fast and sometimes within hours of my launch. If you would like to be a part of the inner circle, which means 1 hour advance notice via Facebook and/or email of my collection live, prior to it going public, please drop me a personal message with your name, email and page link to and you will be notified.

Thank you again to all of you who have continued to support and inspire me creatively from the music of
My Ruin to the art of BGD.

Love, Mrs M

Mick Murphy with Chevy Metal - On The Road Video!

Click the link below and check out this killer new video featuring Mick with Chevy Metal via Rolling Stone Magazine documenting their time spent in Chile back in April of this year. Also, learn about the rad new project Mick has recently recorded with Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters called Birds of Satan coming soon!

Video & Interview:
Rolling Stone Magazine

When Dave Grohl started playing with Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins needed a way to keep busy, so he teamed up with longtime friends Wiley Hodgden and Mick Murphy for the cover band Chevy Metal. Started, in Hawkins' words, "as a goof," Chevy Metal has evolved to become first a regular live act, and now, Hawkins and his Chevy Metal mates have written and recorded new material as the Birds of Satan, a new project that features a nine and a half-minute title track co-written with Grohl and Murphy.
