Ex-demo - Artist played - Factory finish imperfections

A huge number of customers have inquired regarding Gibson's Demo Shop on Reverb for American customers only.
We decided to push for Aussie guitarists to get a similar opportunity for bargains so we've worked closely with Australia's Gibson distribution partner to present an exclusive opportunity to snap up bargain-priced Gibson B-stock instruments.

All Gibson B-stock guitars are priced 35-50% off RRP!

Gibson SG Standard HP-II - Mojave Fade (B-Stock Special) #B21

SKU 8000016-B21

Retail price: $4999 | Our current sale price for new stock: $3890

This is by far the best SG we've ever had come through our shop! Everything about this Gibson SG Standard HP-II in Mojave Fade finish is just amazing - The feel, the tone, the look - It's truly exceptional and having the crazy discount applied to it makes it even more amazing.

Cosmetic issue that led to this being a B-stock instrument: There's some binding that has been over-sanded on the treble side from roughly the 17th to 20th frets. It's a minor thing and won't stop you from rocking out, that's for sure!

* Checked over by our team and set up ready to play with 10-46 strings.

* Includes genuine Gibson hardcase, factory paperwork and case candy.


Gibson Demo Shop - Gibson USA B-Stock guitars - ex-demo, artist played etc

Exclusive Gibson USA B-Stock Bargains

B-stock guitars can include instruments used by Gibson endorsed artists for a gig or recording session, some might be ex-demo from trade shows etc while the rest are simply designated B-stock because of minor finishing issues from the factory.

The world LOVES Gibson guitars (we sure do!) but if there's one knock on them it's the common knowledge that the lacquer finishing isn't always spot on. In fact most of us Gibson lovers often joke about the fact there's not really any such thing as a perfectly finished Gibson guitar 😆

Gibson's factory quality control team tries its best to maintain a standard when shipping out guitars but sometimes instruments do make their way out of the factory with finish imperfections that would be categorized as a blemish which gets in the way of selling the guitar as a brand spankin' new Gibson.

Gibson's Australian distribution partner Australis Music has an exceptional team carefully inspecting each Gibson guitar that ships to Australia. Sometimes the team encounters these minor cosmetic blemishes on a guitar and they set it aside for the guitar to be assessed further.

Once the Australis team of guitar techs has confirmed the guitar plays right/sounds right and simply just has a cosmetic imperfection, the guitar is designated as B-Stock and made available to stores for purchase to offer B-Stock bargains to their customers with heavily discounted prices and three-month warranties for customer piece of mind.

And they really are bargains!

The cosmetic blemishes are no worse than any scratches/dings etc a player will end up inflicting on their guitar anyway through playing them, running into things on stage, bumping the corner of a desk in the studio, knocking over a stand in the lounge etc.
