Description

This is the definition of cool, and is the best representation of the standard 1959 Les Paul since the Gibson custom shop began producing historic reissues over 25 years ago. It is characterised by light aging by the expert craftsmen of Murphy Lab. The Murphy Lab Light Aged finish treatment, combined with lightly aged hardware, simulates decades of natural playing use, giving it the unique character, charm and feel of the original Gibson Golden Era.
