Glad you've got it set up properly and plays like you want it too! I've never noticed any flaking on that guitar or an any or my ML LP's. I am getting it with my 335 though. I've had a bit come off the back of the neck at the bottom and a little on the side too.No problem, Paul! Appreciate the comments. I’ve since given it a proper setup, trussrod needed a tweak and fretboard needed some oil. It sings! Lovely guitar. I always like a back story so thanks for the reply. The guy I bought it off said he just always picked up his 59. He did have 24 guitars!
Another question if you don’t mind, for anyone, did you ever have concerns of the dreaded murphy flaking finish? I can see it looks pretty good but notice around the bottom strap button the checking does seem like there’s tiny gaps under the cracks, almost like moisture? Don’t know how to describe so have a pic. Have seen this on other guitars, feels smooth and doesn’t seem to want to go anywhere. Just curious if anyone has seen this on their murphy labs.
I got a little bit of discount on the 335 so I'm not bothered about it.I think it adds character to it! I didn't want to return it as its got something about it! It plays and sounds really good. And I've bonded with it now so I'm keeping it lol.
