    Love it! Great top and finish! What are the pickups? BB 3's?

    I have a 2004 Murphy aged that looks just like this and has killer tone or I'd be calling you now! Have been thinking about a M2M but a result like this one makes me think otherwise.

    Have to be a killer top and different finish - not sure but maybe an iced tea, bourbon burst, etc and mid 8's on the weight.
    This guitar is very nice Kim!

    Thanks landguitar. We sometimes trade for later model R8's (2013 through 2017) that are under 9lbs with vintage style Eastern maple tops.
