I'm not sure there was a Murphy finish in 1998. To be sure : look at the macanics on the back of the headstock : if it looks like a H your guitar is from 98, if it looks like a V it's from 2008. Another way to be sure : look inside the pots cavity, in 2008 gibson uses bumblebee capacitors and not in 98. These capacitors are brown with yellow and red stripes.
