Solidbody Electric Guitar with Mahogany Body, Maple Top, Mahogany Neck, Rosewood Fretboard, Dual CustomBuckers and Heavy Aged Finish
Let's Start With the FinishThis LP Standard gets a Heavy aging from the Murphy Lab, showing significant signs of wear and tear. Looking like a "player's grade" vintage instrument, the back has lots of buckle rash; light arm and neck wear decorate the front, with prominent checking patterns throughout. The hardware gets the Heavy aging treatment as well.
Historically Authentic ConstructionThe Custom Shop doesn't fool around when it comes to construction. From laser-scanned dimensions to chemically recreated plastics, their attention to detail makes all the difference. The mahogany body has a 2-piece maple top assembled with hot hide glue. The mahogany neck gets ’59 specs with a C-shaped profile. A long tenon will keep the neck to body joint stable for decades to come. Your fretting hand will find instant comfort in the rosewood fretboard—the extra-rolled binding makes it feel like a worn-in Gibson.
A Tone Like No OtherThe most alluring aspect of a late ’50s Les Paul is the almighty PAF pickup. From ZZ Top's "Tush" to the Stones' "Satisfaction," Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" to Fleetwood Mac's "Oh Well," the PAF humbucker is sweet and musical, complex and biting, warm and wonderful. Gibson nailed the tone with these Alnico III CustomBuckers. A hand-wired harness with paper-in-oil capacitors and 500K CTS pots gives you more sonic space to explore.
If you want an absolutely authentic Les Paul, get this Gibson.The waiting list for a Murphy Lab guitar can take up to two years, so if vintage style and sounds are your game, grab this Gibson while you can. It comes with a certificate of authenticity, and a brown and pink reissue 5-latch hardshell case.
- Mahogany body for warmth and mid-range punch with a 2-piece maple top for snap and sustain
- Mahogany neck with C-profile and rosewood fretboard for the look and feel of the ’50s
- Dual CustomBuckers and hand-wired harness that provide all flavors of vintage PAF pickups
- Tune-o-matic bridge, stopbar tailpiece and Kluson tuners for historically accurate, rock-solid stability
