Here's another installment in our recent run of Gibson R9s - this time a Murphy Lab Heavy Aged in Slow Iced Tea Fade.

This killer axe weighs in just under 8 pounds, 12 ounces.  The lighter weight is immediately apparent when you first pick it up, and whether it is the weight or just the Murphy Lab selected woods, this is a really resonant guitar as well.  

The guitar has been played very little - the frets show only the slightest wear.  We gave it a new set of 10-46 D'Addario strings and it set up perfectly.

I think we all know what is up with Murphy Lab Gibsons, so I'll spare you additional hype and just say that the guitar lives up to the reputation.

All original goodies and the COA are included in the original (aged) case.
