The holy grail among the Les Paul Reissues, with rugged Murphy Lab Ultra Heavy Aging!

According to countless Les Paul enthusiasts, 1959 is the perfect year for a Les Paul. The neck shape is just right: not too thick, not too thin. This example from Gibson's Murphy Lab collection feels and looks like an actual example from 1959 that has been on tour with you for decades!

It never ceases to amaze us how well Gibson's Murphy Lab guitars capture the feel, look and sound of decades-old guitars. Because this 1959 Reissue really feels like a '59er: played completely open and loose, even though it is a brand new instrument! The neck is also completely vintage correct with its authentic '59 medium C profile and Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The 2 hand-wound Custombuckers are packed with dynamics and make this Les Paul perfectly at home in any genre, whether it is smooth rock, fresh funk or dynamic blues.

And we haven't even talked about the looks yet! What immediately stands out is that amazing flame maple top. You can really watch that for hours without getting bored! And of course there is the Ultra Heavy Murphy Aging: applied by hand by Tom Murphy and his team. This unique Les Paul comes in a luxurious hardshell case.
