Overview

The Gibson Custom Les Paul Reissue 1959 Murphy Electric Guitar is an opportunity to own an exceptional reproduction of this epic model, aged to perfection by Gibson Custom's time-machine master Tom Murphy. The mahogany body is routed just as in 1959 and features a beautiful, hand-picked flame maple top. The neck respects the shape and profile of a 59er and has a Gibson Custom reissue fingerboard for authentic feel. Creme binding underscores the natural woodgrain of the top and continues the length of the neck. Close inspection reveals finish wear in just the right places to give this guitar the familiarity of an old friend. Even the nickel hardware is lovingly aged and perfectly consistent with that of an original 1959 Les Paul. Sonically, this reissue sports dual BurstBucker pickups that are wired to a 3-way switch with Push/Pull coil-splitting on each pickup's Volume control and Phase switching via the Push/Pull mechanism on the Rhythm Tone control. This adds up to a lot of sound shaping and makes this Les Paul worthy of any stage in addition to being a highly-desirable collector's piece. A Gibson hardshell case included.
