Gibson Les Paul 1959 Standard Reissue Murphy Lab Ultra Heavy Aged Lemon Burst #911636


Is that an old original or a reissue after all? Indeed, this is a question that one might ask himself when looking at the pics of this stunning 1959 Les Paul Reissue from the Gibson Custom Shop. Thanks to an elaborate "Ultra Heavy Aging" that mastermind Tom Murphy gave this extraordinary "Paula", it is practically impossible to distinguish this masterpiece from an old original. Check out this fantastic 2 Pc. "Figured Maple" top with its fine hairline cracks and absolutely authentic dings and dongs! In addition, the typical rocked out wear on the neck and back of the body, just like they come from years of use on stage and in the studio. And wow – look at this impressive hardware aging, in which the Murphy Lab was not afraid to recreate the typical rust spots that occur after 60 years. More authenticity is truly impossible!

The '59 Les Paul Standard has long since achieved cult status, not least because of its famous users. It is considered the "Holy Grail" of the electric guitar. Greetings from Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and others. That is why the bar in the Gibson Custom Shop was set extremely high in order to come as close as possible to the legendary sound of the old originals. To ensure this, only strictly selected tone woods were used in the Gibson Custom Shop. A "1-pc. solid lightweight" body made of mahogany, plus a 1-pc. mahogany neck with a dark rosewood fingerboard forms the wood basis for an authentic '59 sound. Together with the unpotted Custombucker Alnico III pickups, which clearly carry the coveted P.A.F. genes, this 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue is perfect for classic Vintage Blues and Rock sounds. Sustainable, singing and fat in tone! An absolute killer sound!

You now have a choice. You can purchase one of the 643 originals for the price of a detached house, or you can grab one here and receive an absolutely high-quality reissue from the Gibson Custom Shop, which, in cooperation with the Murphy Lab, comes damn close to the best originals of that time in terms of look, feel and sound.
