We just cannot seem to keep these Murphy Les Pauls in house for very long and one look at this R9 will tell you why; They are simply one of the finest guitars to be produced by Gibson's Historic Division, period. This particular R9 weighs in at 8 lbs, 10 oz- an outstanding weight by any measure and the neck has a perfect '59 profile. In fact, it's one of the first things you will notice when you hold the guitar and as for the tone department, have no fears. The guitar sounds as you would expect from one of the better examples of the marriage of mahogany and maple and I wonder if the guitars designated to be aged today are still hand- picked? It certainly seems to us that this R9 is a cut above the standard reissue you might find in one of the many shops across this great land. The seller is a well- known guitarist from North Carolina, so the pedigree is established- seems he too has great taste when it comes to a fine Les Paul! The aging on this one is typical of Murphy's early work and is a fine example of his dedication to his craft. The color is intense and shows signs of the late 90's, double- stained "Flame Wars" guitars. Quite pleasing to the eyes from any angle! It's a top- shelf, above the norm Les Paul, so give us a shout on this beast today! As always, 'Elk operators are standing by and ready to be of service!
