Gibson Custom 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue Limited Edition Brazilian Rosewood w/ Bigsby Murphy Lab Heavy Aged Electric Guitar - Tri-Burst


The Gibson Custom Shop and Murphy Lab are proud to introduce a new limited run incorporating Tom Murphy's deep knowledge of vintage guitars, passion for his craft, and inspired creativity to bring his vision of the ultimate 1959 Les Paul™ Standard reissues to life. These extraordinary guitars utilize handpicked materials of the highest quality, including Brazilian rosewood fretboards, super lightweight mahogany bodies, and AAAA-figured maple tops that were cherry-picked and set aside specifically for this release. Their Murphy Lab aging is unique and distinct from other Murphy Lab offerings and completely exclusive to this distinguished limited run, with a heavy treatment and notable touches like custom-aged plated and plastic parts. Each finish option was developed and selected by Tom Murphy as well. A total of six colors, with 50 guitars in each color, will be a part of this very special limited run, and a leather-bound certificate of authenticity and an aged Lifton™ hardshell case are also included with each one of these exceptional instruments.
