The allure of the 1954 Les Paul Goldtop, with its distinctive "wraparound" tailpiece, has mesmerised guitar virtuosos from Freddie King to Jeff Beck. This timeless design feature has sparked fervent debates amongst musicians and enthusiasts alike.

In their pursuit of perfection, the Gibson Custom Shop has meticulously recreated the '54 Reissue, meticulously capturing the essence of the original instruments' look, feel, and tone.

The Gibson Custom Murphy Lab '54 Les Paul Goldtop boasts the exquisite artistry of the skilled artisans at the Murphy Lab, renowned for their unparalleled expertise in ageing techniques.
