Welcome to the Murph Guitars tribute site.

Dec 2015 – Welcome to the ‘on again / off again’ Murph Guitars site!

Once again ( and because of a number of reasons ) I have been AWOL from the site and letting it flow along by itself.

I promised months and months ago that there was going to be a For Sale section. After 10 years with the Murph, my collection of guitars and spare parts will be up for sale this coming year. I should have the relevant pages loaded in a few weeks ( before the working year starts again and I get snowed under once more )

The Murph guitar was the brainchild of the late Pat Murphy, an entrepreneurial man who in 1965 – 67 established a company to design & build a quality instrument for the youth of America.

It was a dream that this small company did not realise – the heavyweights of the great guitar market share battles of the sixties saw to that and the Murph was relegated to history, to be forgotten by most players & collectors.

This website was created to change that!  On the following pages I have collated all I can on this obscure brand of guitar, pictures, facts, illustrations, instructions etc… anything to help owners maintain or restore their MURPHS.

All I ask is that if any photos are used that due credit is given – it took a lot of time & money to amass all this information!

The man may be gone, but his creation lives on ……. “hail the MURPH”


NOT just another guitar site!
