Interesting finding.
It’s a 2018 Murphy’s painted/aged. Came out of Gibson in 2019.
It is not a 60th anniversary yet it has all the new electronics, aged inlays, nes les Paul logo placement and gold color. But it still has the 18 Gibson logo angle and seems to have the 18 dye color in the back

That fretboard looks mighty dark, too. Braz?

Backorders or low serial numbers often have previous year's specs.

in this case what’s interesting is it’s partially 18 and 19 specs
Yes same with my early '18 R8. It's got both 2017 (washed cherry, R9 neck, jumbo frets) and 2018 (serial, 2 step truss rod cover, untinted lacquer) specs.

That’s one beautiful guitar right there. The pic without the pick guard had me drooling on my iPad.
