A very rare sighting of a Murph Squire 12-string electric guitar!
As seen on Ebay, this Squire 12-string is in pretty good shape for its age. The Murph Squire 6 and 12-string guitars were built by Murphy Music Industries – a company started by WWII veteran Patrick Murphy – in the San Fernando, California in the mid-1960s.
Check out this extremely rare Murph electric guitar being offered on eBay. These guitars were built in Southern California in the mid-1960’s by Patrick Murphy, a World War II Navy vet turned guitar luthier and entrepreneur.
Just one day after we reported the #AlmostFamous story of Murph Guitars, one of the rarest 1960′s guitar shows up on eBay. Interestingly, the seller has misnamed the Squire II-T as the Squire 11-T. Same naming mistake that Michael Wright made in his article.
Here’s the story of Murph Guitars. It’s the story of how Patrick Murphy, a WWII Navy pilot from Detroit, who moved to California in the 1960′s – and for a brief period – became a designer and manufacturer of some groovy electric guitars.
