The finest ’60 you'll ever find. Order this Gibson Murphy Lab Les Paul today.
Let's Start With the FinishTom Murphy was instrumental in creating the Gibson Custom Shop; he's also a pioneer in the art of aging guitars. This 1960 Les Paul features his reverse-engineered lacquer formula with unique checking patterns. The finish flakes to reflect 50-plus years of light play wear, with softened edges, dings and pick trails all over.
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. This mahogany body has a 2-piece figured maple top assembled with hot hide glue. The mahogany neck has less "meat" than a ’59 Les Paul—Gibson calls it a 1960 Slim Taper profile. Extra-rolled binding makes the rosewood fretboard as comfortable as a well-oiled baseball glove.
A Tone Like No OtherGibson loaded this guitar with a set of CustomBuckers. Alnico III magnets supply the warmth; leaving them unpotted adds clarity. A hand-wired harness with paper-in-oil capacitors and 500K CTS pots gives you more sonic space to explore. The "reflector" volume and tone knobs and wider "double ring" tuner tips match original specs.
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 includes hardware aged to match the finish, 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 1960 Slim Taper profile and rosewood fretboard for the look and feel of the ’60s
- Dual alnico III CustomBuckers (unpotted) 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
