    Anyone actually happy with their Murphy Lab?

    Used to be my feeling too. I just had a hard time paying for a pre-damaged guitar. And I've seen quite a number of guitars that aren't very well done. However, in the past 10 years or so I've owned quite a number of Fender CS aged in variety of levels, plus some other boutique builds. When...

    NGD: Dream R8 with a Ding!

    love the burst - beauty guitar man! Ding isn't in a really obvious spot that you'll see while playing too, so that's a bonus :)

    My new 2020 60th Anniversary 1960 V2 VOS Tomato Soup

    beauty I recently picked one up, but was a little disappointed in a few issues. Company I got it from has been communicative and discussed some options. Decided to send it back and think I'm going with a Murphy Labs instead, but other than the QC issues, the guitar was great. The Tomato Soup...

    FS - *SOLD* 2019 Gibson 60th Anniversary '59 Les Paul Standard R9 VOS Green Lemon Fade

    I've actually shipped across the border a ton, but on the Canada side we often get charged tax on entry. I could end up paying another 15% on top of the guitar.

    NAD - Vintage Sound V20 (brief review)

    You mean flat on the floor? Yeah, when I gig it is. Just sitting on the stand in my music room. hard to gauge what the resale is around these parts. I don't have too much into it and likely not moving it anyway. For the cost of it, I certainly can't replace it.

    Help picking new amp

    I've really liked Tone Kings I've played through, but haven't tried the one you mention. The Vox AC15 handwired has precious little clean head room, and I found it rather meh, especially given the cost.

    NAD - Vintage Sound V20 (brief review)

    I've owned several mid/low watt amps. Blues Jr (owned several, and still have 1) Deluxe reverbs for some mid level amps, plus quite a few handwired builds from Dr Z, Two Rock, Victoria and others. All others, save for the Two Rock, disappoint in gig settings for me, and the tone I'm looking...

    FS/T Gibson Traditional Burst - GONE

    SOLD/TRADED 2016 Les Paul Traditional. Guitar plays great, and weighs in at a nice 9.2 lbs. Guitar has some player wear in the form of some very light buckle rash on the back, a few unfortunate dings near the jack plate, and small ding near the binding on the top. I've tried to photo them as...

    NGD - 2012 R8 (pic heavy)

    Pretty beefy - typical R8s I think. Lemon is slightly thinner I think, but not much.

    NGD - 2012 R8 (pic heavy)

    Did a deal and got a 2nd R8 - 8.4 lbs and a lighter burst than the pics show. Cool guitar, with sign Bonomassa pickups in it. Truss rod is quite stiff, but have the action down where I like it so no play issues. Guitar with it is an 07 R8
