My brother is considering buying an epiphone B-Stock Les Paul with either an Ebony or a Cherry Sunburst finish. He has asked me and my father both what B-Stock means, and we're not exactly sure, so does anyone here know why it's considered a B-Stock? We all just figured that there was some small defect that was hardly noticeable, but thats a guess. Any and all help is appreciated! Thanks.

Thanks a lot! I'm pretty sure it isn't second-hand, but I could be wrong. Besides, I think second-hand is called refurbished.

I think it means that it was the year beore's model. I'm not sure though, contact the dealer.

it just means that there is a small cosmetic flaw; usually like a little scratch.

Usually B-Stock Epiphones started life in the Gibson plant, but didn't meet the QC requirements and were sent across the street to Epiphone.

I wouldn't bother with the LP-100, and b stock simply means it has a cosmetic scratch.

These are products that have been completely refurbished and tested by their manufacturers to meet original factory specifications.

Give 10 UGers a rope and ask them to pull. 4 will push, 1 will ask for buttsecks, 2 will tell you get an Ibanez and the last 3 will start complaining about Line6 Spiders.

The last b-stock Epi LP Standard I saw had a paint smudge on the binding near the cutaway and the binding was crooked by a bit. Basically, it was wavy. It sounded AMAZING though.

And Colin617, could you tell me where you got that info? Because the B-stock Epi LP Standard I played sounded THAT amazing. It wouldn't shock me if what you said is true.

If it was a reliable source, I may just have to order a b-stock Epi LP Standard from Musician's Friend!

^Well I think he was joking, plus even the epi elitists lack the same laquer that gives gibsosns their shine and appealing look (well, for the middle and high end ones anyways).

^True...but that Epi I played sounded THAT good.

If only I hadn't been so concerned with the messed up binding...
