• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Hey it's Mat from Gibson Product Development - AMA

Where did you get that info?
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 an actual lab to reverse engineer the nitro. Tom probably told them to do this. So he actually has a part in it. Tom ain’t no scientist. Much less an engineer.

Where did you get that in

i am telling you

Tom worked with Kim at HMO

and I am sure Kim wacked Tom about the back of his phat head and said

dude, real nitro cracks with temp change, why the F are using a razor blade

Tom says, how you be make a be that stuff be

KIm says F off

tom cries to Gibson and finally they throw money at it

what do they end up with

some lame butt shattered glass look

at least that is my view

probably wrong

but until proven wrong i'm stricken with my version of the story

by the way, you see some of the ultra heavy aged LPs and the bare mahogany is pristine , hardware not aged ...

I didn’t guess. Article I posted stated Tom AND Gibson reverse engineered it. Where’s your facts Tom reverse engineered it himself?
You are saying Tom had nothing to do with it ("I'm betting he didn't"). I'm not the one making the claim. You are.

first and foremost, i must warn PAT, don't watch this video until you do the old school "i have a tooth ache" head wrap, cause your jaw is going to drop so fast the only hairs you have left on your face are going to porcupine launch right duck out of your chin

people, you need to check this chit out

why the DUCK are we paying a premium when this is what COULD be going on behind that Murphy Lab door

and what's ducking crazy is there's no garbage smashed crack glass chit, just pure age cracks



disclaimer: i meant no disrespect towards Pat

Mat, what finish was used in 94?

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 microscopes and beakers and chemicals to reverse engineer anything. And he developed Tom Murphy nitrocellulose lacquer. LOL 😂

If putting heat to a guitar and blasting it with keyboard cleaner is reverse engineering? Then they’ve lied. And this is pretty much what he does now from his razor method. Maybe not that exact way? But heat and cold will crack pretty much all custom shop Les paul lacquer. Doesn’t have to be a Murphy lab

You really have no room criticizing my reading compression. Jesus.

You really know nothing about the process. You are pulling shit out of your ass.

Again, you used the words "probably" and "betting". Look those words up. You are pretty much making shit up without any knowledge. Then you use a link that doesn't prove anything. Calling me stupid is funny when you have no clue. Go get your stepmother's checkbook and stick with Squiers.

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 reverse engineer it. A child could interpret this much. YOU misread what I stated. Period. I re-read what I wrote and it there is no holes in it. YOU decided to interpret it you’re way and start an argument. Tom Murphy is no engineer nor scientist. He’s a guitar painter. Period. And THEN decided to try and age guitars which he obviously has done as a Gibson markets it. Tom Murphy is no different than you or I. His skills were in painting. Then aging. Which pretty much ANYONE can do.

You are pulling it out of your ass, forming an opinion than parading it as fact. You and I can do the same thing Tom is doing? LMAO That just proves you have no idea of Tom's past or experience. PERIOD

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…

Lol, should I have to? Can’t this “measurement session” be handled in private messages? You guys could exchange phone numbers, and send each other pics to get this taken care REAL quick. Then the rest of us can continue talking about guitars. Idk, just a thought!
