Features We Love:
Gibson Custom Shop Quality
Before ever reaching the final stages of finishing, the guitars are built in the Gibson Custom Shop. Some of the best luthiers in the business build each Murphy Lab guitar with as much passion and attention to detail as any other. There's no better place for the Murphy Lab to start than with an exceptionally built instrument from the Custom Shop.
Murphy Lab Finish
Each Murphy Lab guitar is painstakingly aged to look and feel like a guitar you've owned for years. The aging process under Tom Murphy's guidance has taken a leap forward, with the new nitrocellulose lacquer recreating the look of a guitar that has spent years in and out of it's case with it's wood moving to create that authentic checking. The Murphy Lab doesn't stop at giving you an authentically aged finish though, they know exactly how a vintage guitar should feel too. When you pick up this Les Paul you'll notice the rolled fingerboard edges, the rolled binding on the guitar and it'll feel like a guitar you've played your entire life.
Authentic Neck Shape
A 1959 Les Paul is hard to come by and not many will ever get to play one. This guitar features a period correct, authentic medium "C" neck shape. Few in the world have the access to vintage instruments that Gibson do, this means the Custom Shop can recreate in excruciating detail exactly how a '59 neck should feel. Combined with the Murphy Lab aging it feels exactly like an old '59 Les Paul should after years and years of playing. All together this means that the experience of a '59 Les Paul is no longer a dream, it's a reality with this Custom Shop Murphy Lab guitar.
