I took the plunge and got a Murphy Lab R-9. I haven't bought a new Custom Shop Lester in 11 years.
How do you upload photos now? It says insert photos..https://hosting.photobucket.com/images/i168/LPCustom/body.webphttps://hosting.photobucket.com/images/i168/LPCustom/angle.webp
Haha! My R8 is the opposite, It’s not a Murphy lab, but the hardware looks very aged.. Very nice looking and well done but the finish of the guitar is new and shiny, it looks bizarre. I can’t understand why they do half of the guitar aged, either way.Well, it's a really nice sounding, nice playing guitar! I'm pretty impressed as I've played alot of old ones and this one is right up there with those. It doesn't have a "New" feel or sound to it!
But what strikes me a very odd is the hardware is all new looking, but the body, neck, etc is aged. It's like they got 1/2 way through aging it and quit.. WTF?
