Introducing the Gibson Custom Murphy Lab '59 Les Paul Standard, a masterpiece born out of unparalleled dedication and craftsmanship. Prepare to be mesmerised by the painstaking attention to detail that went into creating this extraordinary guitar. The Gibson Custom Shop's 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue goes beyond being a mere tribute to the iconic original models; it is an exact clone of those legendary instruments that defined an era. No stone has been left unturned in the pursuit of perfection.

Imagine a meticulously crafted instrument that captures the essence of the priceless 1959 Les Paul Standard in every way imaginable. Through the use of state-of-the-art laser-scanning technology, every dimension of the original has been faithfully replicated. Even the minutest details, such as chemically-recreated plastics and colour-matched shades of sunburst, have been meticulously studied and recreated with astonishing accuracy. The result is a guitar that transcends the boundaries of authenticity.

This awe-inspiring achievement is the culmination of decades of relentless work by the expert team at the Custom Shop. Their unwavering commitment to precision and their deep reverence for the iconic Les Paul Standard shine through in every aspect of this instrument. For over twenty-five years, the Gibson Custom Shop has been perfecting the art of creating Historic Reissues, and the '59 Les Paul Standard stands as their magnum opus.

One of the most striking features of the Gibson Custom Murphy Lab '59 Les Paul Standard is the Light Ageing treatment applied by the skilled artisans at the Murphy Lab. This exquisite finish, combined with subtly aged hardware, flawlessly emulates the natural wear and tear that comes with decades of passionate playing. Each scratch, ding, and mark tells a story, lending this instrument an unmistakable character, vibe, and feel reminiscent of an original Les Paul from the coveted Gibson Golden Era.

The construction of this guitar is a testament to the exceptional quality that defines Gibson's legacy. A two-piece figured Maple top adorns the body, complemented by a lightweight Mahogany body for enhanced resonance and sustain. The 50s Rounded Medium C neck profile provides a comfortable and familiar playing experience, while the Indian Rosewood fretboard showcases the meticulous craftsmanship that goes into every Gibson instrument.

The attention to detail extends to every component of the guitar. With 22 Authentic Medium-Jumbo frets, a nylon nut, and Cellulose Nitrate Trapezoid inlays, this instrument exhibits the utmost precision and craftsmanship. The ABR-1 bridge with Nickel-plated Brass saddles and the lightweight Alluminum Stop Bar contribute to the guitar's exceptional tone and sustain. The Kluson tuners ensure precise and reliable tuning stability, allowing you to explore the full potential of this extraordinary instrument.

Completing the sonic package are the Custombucker Alnico 3 (Unpotted) humbucker pickups. These pickups faithfully reproduce the legendary PAF tones that made the original '59 Les Paul Standard a true icon. The CTS 500K Audio Taper potentiometers and Paper-in-Oil capacitors further enhance the sonic capabilities, delivering a wide range of rich and nuanced tones. The Switchcraft 3-way switch and output jack provide reliable and noise-free operation.

The Gibson Custom Murphy Lab '59 Les Paul Standard is a triumph of craftsmanship and dedication. It is the ultimate realisations of a decades-long quest for accuracy and authenticity. Whether you're a collector, a professional musician, or an avid enthusiast, this guitar represents the pinnacle of coolness and the definitive embodiment of the iconic 1959 Les Paul Standard.
