FollowingHey Mat, just picked up a Murphy Lab extra heavy relic 59 LP new from Fullers here in Houston. He custom ordered a batch in Bourbon burst. It weighs right at 8 lbs and is so loud and resonant unplugged! I have 3 questions:
1. Does the Murphy lab select its own wood or do they just use whatever is sent to them? The heavy and extra heavy relics in particular seem to have light and resonant bodies.
2. Does Murphy himself work on or inspect the extra heavy relic? It’s so damn good and i can’t help but wonder. I’ve competed the checking, etc to my 1955 LP jr and the ML is right on the money!
3. What wood is used for the body? Is Fiji the same as Honduran and is it new or old?
Thanks in advance!
