These extraordinary guitars utilize handpicked materials of the highest quality. including Brazilian rosewood fretboards, super lightweight mahogany bodies, and AAAA-figured maple tops that were cherry-picked and set aside specifically for this release. Their Murphy Lab aging is unique and distinct from other Murphy Lab offerings and completely exclusive to this distinguished limited run, with a heavy treatment and notable touches like custom-aged plated and plastic parts. Each finish option was developed and selected by Tom Murphy as well.
