    So What Is Your Opinion On The 59 Greeny Coming In 2023

    Well the $50k will have a braz board. I’m almost positive they’re using Brandonwound pups as opposed to custombuckers. Other than that? Murphy Lab I believe will age them. Idk if TM was involved with the 2010s? The “VOS” or whatever light aged will come about next yr will just basically be a...

    So What Is Your Opinion On The 59 Greeny Coming In 2023

    Well obviously they KNOW they can’t sell 300 otherwise they’d make them. Why didn’t they make purely 2015 True Historic Models for that yr and offer nothing else? Because they knew they wouldn’t sell them all if more than 300 a piece for each yr model 58-60. At $50k I’d prefer a vintage over...

    So What Is Your Opinion On The 59 Greeny Coming In 2023

    Takes away the prestige of owning 1 of 50 rather than 1 of 300 I don’t see how Gibson could ever top this guitar as in selling ANYTHING more expensive. Even a Jimmy Page with a meet n greet would cost the same. Though they’d probably upcharge since he’s considered one of the most iconic. So say...

    So What Is Your Opinion On The 59 Greeny Coming In 2023

    No shit? They’re only making what? 50 in the ENTIRE WORLD??? Of course they’ll sell all 50. If that was 300? Price would probably drop a bit as that’d be difficult to sell 300 at $50k a pop.

    T Thats no doubt. It’ll be a limited item. Limited items always sells out.

    So What Is Your Opinion On The 59 Greeny Coming In 2023

    The ML undoubtedly. I agree they’ll probably sell around 200 of them. At $15-20k a pop? They’ll sell but probably won’t make more than 2-300 of them as a $15k guitar isn’t exactly something to throw that much income at. Especially with inflation and world collapsing. The ML isn’t going to be...

    10 is NOT a shit ton now is it? Pat acts like he KNOWS everything. But can’t prove what anyone knows. But he said Gibson will sell a shit ton. I’m betting they won’t. But let’s let Pat tell us how much a shit ton is. Since he KNOWS so much?

    Stfu! You don’t know shit! Let me see your proof they’ll sell a shit ton at $50k. One person said they’re only making 50. I assure you they won’t sell 1000 of these guitar at $50k. I’ll put money where my mouth is.

    So What Is Your Opinion On The 59 Greeny Coming In 2023

    I may buy a ML of it IF I can play it first. $50k for a replica? You’re an idiot with money to throw. Why not sell them for $20k and skip the fly over, meet n greet with Kirk and the photo op? That’s where the $30k is. Cause a braz board ML is what? 18-20k MSRP? Not like it’ll sound like Greeny...

    Hey it's Mat from Gibson Product Development - AMA

    Since you live with Tom, please explain his past experiences. An opinion? My opinion is that Tom didn’t reverse engineer nitro. However you have not provided one piece of evidence that states otherwise. But of course you KNOW? yea, you stated what you know. Which is nothing…

    Hey it's Mat from Gibson Product Development - AMA

    Obviously you misread what I stated. I said he himself did NOT reverse engineer it. That he probably threw the idea to Gibson to do that cause he himself CANNOT re-engineer it. Just as YOU could not re-engineer it. Gibson has the money. He doesn’t, case closed. I said I’m betting He didn’t...

    Hey it's Mat from Gibson Product Development - AMA

    Your comprehension is pathetic at best. I didn’t say he had nothing to do with it. I said he didn’t reverse engineer it himself. He doesn’t have the capacity to do so. Neither do you! It’d take an actual laboratory to do the yr for you. But by your thinking, Tom has particle accelerators and...

    Hey it's Mat from Gibson Product Development - AMA

    I didn’t guess. Article I posted stated Tom AND Gibson reverse engineered it. Where’s your facts Tom reverse engineered it himself?

    Hey it's Mat from Gibson Product Development - AMA

    Ummm let’s see here, Gibson hired Murphy and created a lab when he brought them an aged guitar. You’re telling me that Tom Murphy reverse engineered the nitro? I’m betting he didn’t. If you simply google it, it says Murphy and Gibson reverse engineered it. I’m betting Gibson fronted the money to...

    Hey it's Mat from Gibson Product Development - AMA

    I said they SHOULD be using both the same nitro. Gibson reverse engineered it. So why not use it on ALL Custom shop reissues? You’re charging for it regardless. Murphy didn’t reverse engineer it. Gibson did. So it’s kinds a dumb to just use it on MLs. They’re already making an immense profit on...

    Murphy Lab Nitro vs. Custom Shop Plasticized Nitro

    I seriously doubt it’ll all fall off. Parts of it will flake off. But my white 1974 LPC has nitro that flaked off on the bottom. Who cares? The guitar is still a guitar. I’d prefer a beat up 1959 Les Paul than one in pristine condition. Because if it’s played to hell? You know it was good. My...
