oh, I get it....you dumped a massive pile of cash on some ridiculous fake so now you're trying to defend it. LOL.Maybe I am biased because I own a WW Select 2017 R0 BUT i likely will never sell it so I wont benefit from their promotion. Based on my experience and in certain cases they DO actually select superior woods like PRS Private Stock. This back pic of my R0 doesn't do it justice. In the flesh it's really amazing looking and rings like a bell. The guitar posted here in question looks like it has select mahogany too. I worked as a luthier for a few years and wood selection DOES make a difference to tone as well as looks. I like the lower wind ordered custombuckers too as they have more definition and I can easily boost them with a clean boost to hit an amp hard. So they are worth an upcharge I don't need to go to boutiques...... like private stock in PRS imo. How much is fair is questionable but obviously Gibbo are going for what the market will bear. So arguably the whole $4600 extra isn't just the Murphy paint job. The sourness of this deal is that it is not at all an exceptionally good or out standing paint job.
Hey it's all good buddy. You love it, that's all that matters.
