    NGD , R8 Murphy Lab ultra light aging

    What’s Up, I’ve been not active on here for a long time, I’ve been lurking 👀 here and there over the years. I came around in 2006 and started a journey of buying and selling and chasing the perfect Flame Top which I found out does not exist, Atleast for me any way. It was unhealthy for me and my...

    Will this be a slow year around here.

    I cant help but wonder if 2014 will be kind of slow for us around here. 2013 was a GREAT year for Historic"s and lots of members bought great Les pauls. I think the C.C Run will do good and as always Big tops will sell. One of the big dealers still has a lot of 2013 stock left, 21 R9s 27 R8s and...

    Greg Martin C.C #15

    Greg Martin #15 Number 63 came yesterday and So far I really like her. I was worried about the neck being to small for me as I like chunky 50s necks and this run have all been in the .890 to .910 Im not sure the measurement of this one but it feels good. I have never felt a real 59 neck so not...

    new 2014 FireBird

    Picked up this 2014 FireBird yesterday, Went looking for an SG and this flew home with me instead. Has the high set as the birds in other thread but plays ok needs some tweaking to stop the buzzing. Not sure of weight but it feels really light.

    Price difference between CC#13 and CC#15??

    I am looking at buying a CC#15 they are asking 6,322.00 and the CC#13 is 7,998.00 there both pretty much plain tops. Is T.M still doing some or are they all in house now. Wondering why a 1,676.00 difference in price between these models.

    Warren Haynes Playing a 2013 R9

    Warren Haynes Playing a 2013 R9 ??? Went to see the ABB at the Beacon in NYC on 3-15-13 and Warren played a 2013 R9 with a killer top. He played it the whole night except for one song he used a 335. He sounded better than ever and played lead most of the night. I guess he just had to have one!!!!!!

    Historic 59 ES335,,, The Rat,,,,,

    I picked up this 07 Historic 59 335 this week or maybe it found me? I think its kind of funny because i am very anal when it comes to buying used guitars. I like every thing clean and close to mint as possible. So a pic of the case was not in the add. I open the box and see it had a few glue...

    Dave made me do it. Get this new 2012 R8 that is. I saw all the new R8"S they got and kept checking and every day they got a few more than I saw this one and called my guy and was hoping it would not have a chunky neck. I was told out of the bunch this one was one of the best sounding and...
