good thing it didn't land on his feet, look at his toenails, that could be still edible
What carries more value in the used market, Murphy Aged/painted or the makeovers such as HM RDS or Dave Johnson?
Subject to actual run of guitar I would think DJ, then HM & then TM.
If the TM is a rare one then TM first; e.g. the 2001 Aged BRW R9 in a run of 38 or the original few he painted early '90's.
IMHO, as long as it's an official TM run from Gibson it should hold better value in the long run.
HM and DJ are both "aftermarket modifications", nothing wrong with them but as with most "collectible", "modifications" are usually flown upon.
ps. the market is flooded with LPs now, unless it's a really special/rare one; resale ain't going to be good.
Agree with you.
The best way to find out is to have each one lined up to pick from.
To me the tone and playability would be the winner. Neck shape, feel, weight,
type of tone you are after, does it fit into your set up for amps, etc.
Top and finish is very personal, along with who did the work.
It boils down to flavor of the day.
As far as value? it depends on who is willing to pay for what it is worth
in market value and how long you decide to keep it.
