What we say:

At A Glance:

This 1963 Firebird V with Maestro Vibrola Ultra Light Aged Ember Red, is as authentic as it gets. Crafted under the supervision of master artisan Tom Murphy, who has a long history with Gibson and star-studded history of 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 its case with its 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 Firebird you'll notice the rolled fingerboard edges, and the rolled binding. and it'll feel like a guitar you've played your entire life.

Authentic Neck Shape

A 1963 Firebird is hard to come by and not many will ever get to play one. This Firebird features a period-correct, authentic medium "C" neck shape. Few in the world have the access to vintage instruments that Gibson does, this means the Custom Shop can recreate in excruciating detail exactly how a '63 neck should feel. Combined with the Murphy Lab aging it feels exactly like an old '63 Firebird should after years and years of playing. Altogether this means that the experience of a '63 Firebird is no longer a dream, it's a reality with this Custom Shop Murphy Lab guitar.
