• 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!

How long did it take Tom Murphy to age a guitar?

I've tried a search but it's hard to set the parameters to what may have given me an answer.

Does anyone know how long it took TM to age a guitar? From lite aging to heavy?

I could see a master doing a lite in an hour or so, and a heavy take 6+... maybe I'm way off.

Depends how busy or responsive the subcontractors are.

Yeah, I'm talking about before Labs. I don't blame him for teaching others how to do his thing. There will be some shining stars coming out of that. Gibson is taking a page out of Fender's Master Built book...

But that doesn't answer the question.

that's not nice

Why?

It was even less nice for Gibson not to have paid those same subcontractors for work done under the Murphy banner when it went bust.

I guess our definitions of “nice” differ.

All that aside, I’m curious as to how long something like that might take.
