Can someone point me to some good pics (or post good pics) of the finish checking on the new ML's? I want to compare it to my CC.
I was surprised when I got the photos that the hardware was all new looking, my 2013 aged R9 has ageing to body and hardware, it looks great, this is just odd what they are doing now.You‘d think so. Especially for the price. And maybe some parts that are aged to go with the aging level of the guitar. Standard VOS parts on all of them is pretty lame.
Really?? That shattered glass checking from compressed air looks nothing like any vintage guitar I've ever had.I was surprised when I got the photos that the hardware was all new looking, my 2013 aged R9 has ageing to body and hardware, it looks great, this is just odd what they are doing now.
I like the new treatment, as I have too much time on my hands I been looking at old guitars and the checking is consistent with what I am seeing.
My assumption on the Murphy labs is that they are going after the final piece of the hysteric pie, the brittle lacquer refinish. But it’s half arsed without the same effort applied to the hardware, it means some will still go and source some area’59/vintage haven/creamtone/etc etc etc, Gibson! add aged vintage correct hardware! The round thing under the pickup selector for one! Roller marks on the trc for another.
that’s a good point. When you look at the guitars in the promo video, they are a lot better in terms of aging and checking. Makes me think they did those a bit diff than many of the ones I’m now seeing photos of.That is a nice example....Thanx for sharing ...
So maybe they are just inconsistent....
wut?because you have cat shit in your sand box, do you think this makes the sand more fun to play in ??
the only positive that I see is it has kept murphy in a job those guitars look like they were wadded up and wrung out to
dry would you take a chain and beat your brand new car with it ! for the life of me I just can't get on with trying to make a new guitar look old , if that is what you want then go buy yourself an old battle axe and get cozy with it !
