Gibson Marauder

I just rescued this poor little Gibson Marauder from the Cincinnati Guitar Center. This is one ugly mutt as you can see but it is a tremendous player. The serial number on this indicates a 1976 Marauder but the pickguard, pickups etc indicate a 1979 model. Check out the gnarly finish:

She could win an ugly dog contest. The stars are stickers that glow in the dark. Tons of personality on this.

No accounting for taste huh. Those glow in the dark stars are a hoot, and then the back of the neck being a red color really blends perfectly with the black body and the stars [confused]

 

Glad it's a player though - enjoy.

 

Sometimes you don't rescue the pretty ones. I have no idea what the previous owner thought when they modified this thing. It has a neck from a 76 but the rest (except the stickers) is a 1979. It is a great player and I do like it inspite of how ugly she is. The new one is slightly modified and well used. No funky paint on it. Pictures coming soon.
