Hi!
I've always liked the looks of the Murray with the HSH configuration, so when one popped up in Germany, I couldn't resist very long...

The other excuse is that the other guitarist in my band always plays a single coil Strat, meaning I don't get to use mine much, and this one does the thicker sounds that I usually cater for :thumb:
The neck bucker is a DiMarzio PAF, the middle a Fender SC and the bridge bucker a DiMarzio Super Distortion - and they are all surprisingly well balanced!
The neck is a bit less V-shaped than the Eric Johnson but still quite chunky. Fretboard is a 9.5" radius which is also comfortable.
The lacquer on the body, apparently nitro, is very brittle, and it got a quite a few chips and some scratches too.

I like it so far!

Cheers
