Gibson Les Paul Custom Silverburst Murphy Lab Lightly Aged #CS200109


When we first contacted Thom Fowle, head of the Gibson Custom Shop, about this Les Paul Custom, we already knew pretty much what Gibson should build for us. We had already received a very similar example in "Aged Classic White" in 2019. As is typical for Gibson, a "limited run" was built in very manageable numbers and one of these models found its way to us. This custom sounded just great and last but not least, it looked breathtakingly good in its subtle aging and in its color Aged Classic White! It was clear that it should not stay with this one model and so we ordered 5 more models in this color and an additional run of 5 Customs in Silverburst as part of the M2M (Made to Measure) program. All models were to be built along the lines of the 2019 Custom that we were so enthusiastic about. Also on our wish list were a little more intensive aging and the lightest possible mahogany.
What nobody knew at the time: the M2M program was already history. The option of having instruments manufactured by the Custom Shop even in very small numbers within the "Made 2 Measure" program was canceled at the end of 2019. The reason was actually positive: Gibson had brought the legendary Tom Murphy back in order to produce a fixed program of Les Paul's, SG's, ES models, Firebirds etc. at the highest level and with various ages with a small team. Since it was foreseeable that this task would tie up all resources, the end of the M2M program was decided at the same time. Fowle, one of the nicest people on this planet, had already prepared the construction of our desired 10 Customs despite all the uncertainties.
In May 2020 the final OK came from Nashville - the instruments would be built for us and Tom Murphy and his team would take care of the desired aging!

Update: the first order of 5 Customs in Classic White and 5 Customs in Silverburst was delivered in 2021 and the guitars were just great! Sound, aging, weight... everything was really right!
Accordingly, this delivery was sold out quickly!
We ordered more and basically we only had one wish: Please build us instruments of the same quality again. Here is the first Silverburst of the latest delivery. Deep black ebony fretboard, a weight of 4038 grams and great aging... well done! This time we have ordered some more custom colors that will arrive in the near future. There are still models in these colours: Frost Blue Light Aged, Graffiti Yellow Light Aged, Heritage Cherry Sunburst Light Aged, Heritage Cherry Sunburst Heavy Aged, Pelham Blue Light Aged, Pelham Blue Heavy Aged.
