Overview

The Gibson Custom Murphy Lab 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue is a startling recreation of the original holy grail guitar. Built in the Custom Shop with period-correct appointments and superior attention to detail, its journey continued in the Murphy Lab. Utilizing aging techniques created by Master Artisan Tom Murphy, this reissue emerged looking like a vintage Gibson with very little playing wear. Loaded with a set of CustomBuckers, the Ultra Light Aged ’59 Standard sets a new one for historical authenticity, and will become the centerpiece of your collection. It is available now at Guitar Center.

Main Features

  • Lightweight mahogany body with 2-piece figured maple top
  • Mahogany neck with 1959 medium C-profile, Indian rosewood fretboard
  • Dual Gibson CustomBucker pickups, 3-way switch
  • Tune-o-matic bridge, stopbar tailpiece, Kluson tuners
  • Murphy Lab Ultra Light Aged finish

Mahogany and Maple Construction

There's no reason to mess with perfection—this Murphy Lab Les Paul has a lightweight mahogany body and figured maple top, just like in 1959. Marrying two unique woods proves that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

Solid Neck Specs

The mahogany neck has an authentic '59 medium C-shape. The fretboard is rosewood; extra-rolled binding mimics the feel of a broken-in Gibson. It also disrupts the evenness of the yellowed lacquer with a wear pattern that matches a naturally aged instrument.

Powerful Pickups

Nailing the tone of a PAF pickup on a late ’50s Les Paul has sent some on the biggest fool's quest since Coronado searched for the cities of gold. Fortunately, the Custom Shop is stocked with the type of folk that rise to the occasion. The resulting CustomBuckers sound so authentically 1959, you'll swear Eisenhower is still president. A hand-wired harness with paper-in-oil capacitors and 500K CTS pots supplies sonic variations; the rest is up to you.

Historic Hardware

The Murphy Lab LP Standard has a stopbar tailpiece, tune-o-matic bridge and Kluson tuners that match original ’59 specs. The hardware shines, but has a patina that can't hide its age

Ultra Light Aged Finish

The Murphy Lab puts this guitar through its Ultra Light aging process, showing slight lacquer checking, but very little playing wear. The nitrocellulose lacquer was reverse-engineered for historical authenticity. The end result is a Les Paul that looks like it has spent the bulk of its life in a case.

The Gibson Custom Murphy Lab 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue comes with a certificate of authenticity and a brown and pink reissue 5-latch hardshell case.
