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.

"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
