Gibson M2 Comes in Strawberry Milk (pictured) or Bright Cherry.
But thank you for posting.
I was reading the specs, it seems to be a plywood body. It's funny that it has a Nitro paint job, I've heard so many times that Nitro is what drives the price up on Gibsons compared to the cheap poly everyone else uses.
I love Gibsons but this is what most no name companies would put out for $99.
It looks like a $99 guitar. I personally would have chosen a far different sales strategy. Who knows, stranger things have happened I guess.
The ad says solid poplar body. But it wouldn't be the first time that someone made a mistake (maybe "plywood" is not in the drop-down menu and "poplar" is the nearest word). I have the same reservations that everyone has about a $299 MIA guitar, just thought I'd mention it in case someone wanted a "real" guitar.
Or this for 1/3 of the price.
In which to me is a far better looking guitar.
I'd say ... less bad looking.
lol well said
This is where I got that info from, GC's website:
I don't disagree with the above, but if these were a junior, with, say, a bridge P90, I'd be tempted.
I really wanted to hate these homage to Norlin models, but I've played a couple and they are pretty good. Hardware is cheap but functional, controls feel cheap but worked fine. The pickups are a little hotter than I like, but not unlike 490s. The aesthetics kill the deal for me, but for you, who knows.
Looks like a GC error. The Gibson website says solid poplar. Maybe someone will buy one, open the cavity, and report back.
From my experience GC isn't known for attention to detail! I ordered an amp from them, online stated it was a DSL 100, what I got was a DSL 50, they said it was "incorrectly spec'd" lol!
The body and neck are made of "tree product"
I love guitars made "tree products" except the fact that it sheds its strings once a year and that pisses me off.
Maybe next year Gibson will put out a guitar made of MDL
King Henry, onward with innovation!
Just make a mold, add a truss rod and inject plastic.
You could cast it with frets in place, now there is innovation.
