    That thing is ridiculous, I'd prefer it without the relicing but either way, its stunning

    I doubt it lasts very long... :doh:

    That's the best of the bunch AFAIC. :dude:

    But what is with the serial number?

    this is a total departure from all previous Historics. :hmm:

    He still paints a beautiful guitar, thats for sure.

    However after feasting on Historic Makeovers "distressing" over the years with some of your guys' guitars, I really don't like the aging on the Murphy's as much.

    Looks nice but for the price just for the Murphy name, no thanks. I'll keep what I have and love.

    #9 looks good also. Probably more historically accurate than #10 overall. Color wise they are close.

    Don't get the serial # system for these. 10?? Not sure what the first 2 digits, after the "9" of this run stand for ,"10", since this is 2017.

    The aging adds to the look also but IMO I've seen as good or better "in house" aged models over the years also for way less. Murphy did train Gibsons in house aging staff after all.

    The Murphy name will sell these one way or the other though, even if it takes a while for them to sell.

    Definitely sweet guitars! However the serial numbers were the reason for the thread. If these followed previous and current convention they'd be numbered 9 7XXX. Instead they are numbered 9 1XXX which would make them '01s or '11s.

    Must be the year of confusion at Gibson...

    I read somewhere that they come with their own special Serial Numbers, so i was expecting them to have a TM or something similar at the beginning...but i don't like what they have chosen to do.

    I wish I had $9.4K to drop on a LP.

    If I did I'd spend it on something else. :D

    Agree , he paints a nice looking Burst ... But 10K nice ??? . 10K today , sell it tomorrow 8.5k ... Pass
    IMO it's a sure way to lose $$$$ ...
    IMO ,unless you're a collector planning to keep it locked in a glass case to put on display ....
    I'd prefer a closer to real spec. guitar , Buy a 2017 (if you pay MAP you're nuts) send it to HM and walk away with about 1K in my pocket .

    They posted a video today (the sold #10 in action - sweet top):



    Looks and sounds great, IMO! The finish is more red than the Wildwood pics make them look. I dig the finish even more after watching the video.
