What we say:

At A Glance:

This Gibson Custom Shop Murphy Lab 1957 Les Paul Custom Reissue 3-Pickup Bigsby Light Aged, is as authentic as it gets. Crafted under the supervision of master artisan Tom Murphy, who has a long history with Gibson and a star studded history with creating vintage looking instruments. Each instrument is crafted in the Gibson Custom Shop by expert luthiers, then the Murphy Lab takes over. With Tom Murphy's innovative and unique aging process what you end up with is a guitar that looks accurately aged, but also feels and plays like the guitar you've been playing your whole life.

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. and it'll feel like a guitar you've played your entire life.

Bigsby Vibrato

Always a welcome inclusion on any instrument, but with this Les Paul the Bigsby just ties it all together. Used by countless artists young and old, big and small, the Bigsby has a characteristic sound which can add colour to your chords and lead lines. Complete with the same level of aging from the Murphy Lab this Bigsby looks and feels right at home in your hand.
