i was on musiciansfriend and i saw a bunch of b stock and blem epi les pauls and SGs for a lot cheape. By blem do they mean a few nicks and scratches or the pickups dont work and the neck is broken. Is it safe to by a blem guitar or is it a risk?
as far as i know its fairly safe...usually a blem guitar is just a blem in the finish and is often barely noticeable, but it should affect the playability of the guitar whatsoever

they all work. and come usually can be returned anyway.
usually it's a return that's been fixed or a cosmetic problem.

A few people I know (I wouldn't call them friends... heh) have bought "blemeshied" guitars online and we couldn't find a single thing wrong with them. You might get unlucky and get one with a scratch or a small crack somewhere, but it almost never affects the sound or playablity of the guitar, It's purley cosmetic. So if you're on a budget and are gonna smash the guitar up anywway; or you just don't care buy one, by all means.

And hey with the money you save, you might even be able to get the blemish repaired.

Edit: And like he said above if it's too dramatic, send it back and you SHOULD get all your money back, possibly less a shipping fee.
