Chevron Right Icon

A painstakingly accurate recreation of an all-gold, holy grail guitar.

The Gibson Custom Murphy Lab ’57 Les Paul All-Gold Light Aged Gold Top is a painstakingly accurate recreation of one of the most iconic guitars of all time. The all-gold finish has been lightly aged, reflecting an instrument that has been played and cherished. Classic solid mahogany/maple construction and versatile humbucking pickups will make you wonder, "What else could I possibly need in a guitar?" The answer? Nothing. This is it.

Thousands of hours of research went into this Les Paul—even the chemical composition of the parts was scientifically examined and re-engineered. If you've ever dreamed of going back to '57 to pull a Les Paul off the wall of your local mom and pop, this instrument will make you believe that time travel is real.

Gibson used hot hide glue construction throughout the guitar. The mahogany neck has a period-accurate medium-chunky profile. Trapezoid inlays line the rosewood fretboard. Narrow-tall frets bring the playability closer to the character of a vintage original.

Dual CustomBuckers provide holy grail Gibson tones and pack plenty of PAF punch. Made with Alnico III magnets, these pickups are rich and warm, and only available on Custom Shop instruments. The Gibson Custom Murphy Lab ’57 All-Gold Les Paul Gold Top comes with a hardshell case and a certificate of authenticity.


  • Maple top on lightweight mahogany body with lightly aged nitrocellulose lacquer
  • 24.75"-scale mahogany neck, 22-fret hide glue-fit rosewood fingerboard
  • Dual CustomBucker pickups, 3-way switch
  • ABR-1 tune-o-matic bridge, stopbar tailpiece, Kluson Deluxe tuners

Travel back to 1957 for this historic Murphy Lab instrument from Gibson Custom.
