The king among electric guitars; The Gibson Les Paul 1959 Standard Royal Tea Murphy Lab Light Aged!

Together with Gibson we have joined forces for a unique selection of Murphy Lab guitars that are only available at Dijkmans Music. We kick off with a guitar that, according to many guitar enthusiasts, may be the holy grail; The 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard.

Together with Tom Fowle from Gibson, we selected each top and matched it with the most beautiful finishes in our opinion! For this recreation of the 1959 Les Paul we turn this guitar into a real "Royalty" with the "Royal Tea" finish with Light aging!
