Gibson Murphy Lab R9 Les Paul, Ultra Light Aged, COA, OHSC, New!

Brand new Left Handed Gibson Murphy Lab 1959 Reissue Les Paul, Ultra Light Aged, COA, OHSC, and all accessories. Special ordered in the Believer Burst finish, based on Vic Dapra’s 1959 Les Paul Standard (9-0850).

DESCRIPTION:
Gibson Custom Shop’s 1959 Les Paul™ Standard Reissue is not just a tribute to the priceless original models — it’s a clone of them. From laser-scanned dimensions to chemically-recreated plastics to color-matched shades of sunburst, every element has been rendered in unbelievable detail.

It represents the culmination of decades of work by Custom Shop’s expert team — a tireless quest to bring accuracy and authenticity to the hands of fans. It’s the definition of cool, and it’s the best representation of the 1959 Les Paul Standard since the Gibson Custom Shop began making Historic Reissues over twenty-five years ago.

It features Ultra Light Aging by the skilled artisans of the Murphy Lab. The Murphy Lab Ultra Light Aged finish treatment, paired with lightly aged hardware, simulates decades of light play wear, giving it the unique character, vibe, and feel of an original example from the Gibson Golden Era.
