Question for the forum: I'm interested in either a regular Gibson Custom Shop ‘59 reissue ES-335 or a Murphy Lab version. The Murphy Lab is about $2k more than the regular Custom Shop model. Should I save the money and go with the regular CS or pony up and get the Murphy? Both guitars are at shops far from home so I cannot do a sound comparison. Both guitars have the same specs minus the Murphy Lab treatment.
