Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Standard Murphy Lab Light Aged Electric Guitar, Royal Tea Burst
The Custom Shop Gibson 1959 Les Paul Standard Murphy Lab Light Aged is not just a tribute to the priceless original model — it's a clone of it. From laser-scanned dimensions to chemically-recreated plastics to color-matched shades of sunburst, every element has been rendered in unbelievable detail. It features a gorgeous Royal Tea Burst nitro lacquer with a Murphy Lab light aged finish, paired with lightly aged hardware, to simulate decades of natural play-wear that gives it a unique character, vibe and feel.
Masterfully-built in America, this Les Paul shows off a two-piece figured maple top on a one-piece lightweight mahogany solidbody, bound by a one-ply royalite binding and decorated with nickel hardware. It's the definition of comfort and power — where a stunning playability meets classic vintage style. The authentic '59 medium C-profile solid mahogany neck will instantly pull you in, letting you peruse the Indian rosewood fingerboard with ease — of which is adorned with twenty-two authentic medium jumbo-sized frets and cellulose nitrate trapezoid inlays.
Shoving a powerful late-fifties rock 'n' roll sound in your face, this Les Paul powers up with the dual Custombucker Alnico 3 unpotted humbuckers, which are controlled by two volume, two tone controls and a three-way toggle switch. The CTS 500K audio taper potentiometers and paper-in-oil capacitors ensure that your tone has the legendary Gibson voice that you crave. Rounded off by the ABR-1 bridge and the lightweight aluminum stopbar along with the Kluson tuning machines, you have an instrument that brings back the best of the Gibson golden era.
