Tom Murphy, the namesake of the Murphy Lab, was central in the creation of the Gibson Custom Shop and personally developed the process of aging guitars, refining his own set of tools and techniques to age guitars with more accuracy and attention to detail than had ever been done before at Gibson.

Now, this first-ever Murphy Lab-aged Brazilian Rosewood run of 1959 Reissue Les Paul Standards features super lightweight mahogany bodies, AAAA-figured maple tops that were cherry-picked and set aside specifically for this release, and (of course) Brazilian Rosewood fingerboards. The Murphy Lab aging is distinct from other Murphy Lab offerings and completely exclusive to this very special run, with a heavy treatment and notable touches, like custom-aged plated and plastic parts.

Carrying on Orville Gibson’s historic pursuit of sonic excellence and aesthetic perfection, the Gibson Custom Shop combines traditional instrument-making techniques, innovative methods, and meticulous attention to detail to craft instruments worthy of its banner-era slogan, “Only a Gibson is Good Enough.”

This instrument exclusively features woods hand-picked by CME’s expert guitar-buying team at the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville, paired with one of our favorite finishes, plus a thoughtful combination of preferred fingerboards, neck profiles, pickups, and hardware, to make this customized Gibson guitar.  

Following decades of research for the Gibson Custom, Art, and Historic Division founded in 1993, Gibson Custom Shop established the Murphy Labs Division in 2017 to take Tom Murphy’s proprietary techniques to the next level.

Sporting a scientifically reverse-engineered nitrocellulose lacquer identical what was used on Gibson guitars of the ‘50s and ‘60s, this Custom Shop instrument has been meticulously aged by hand at Murphy Labs—with all the wear-and-tear of a well-played original, including an extra-rolled fingerboard binding for a broken-in feel and true-to-life look.  

This Limited Edition 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue Murphy Lab Aged w/ Brazilian Rosewood features a super lightweight mahogany body, an AAAA-figured maple top cherry-picked and set aside specifically for this limited run, and (of course) a Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard. The Murphy Lab aging on this guitar is distinct from other Murphy Lab offerings and completely exclusive to this very special run, with a heavy treatment and notable touches, like custom-aged plated and plastic parts.

Since Tom’s well-earned legacy as a Master Luthier and pioneer at Gibson Custom is a testament to his dedication to the art of guitar making, every limited edition Murphy Lab-aged Brazilian Rosewood 1959 Les Paul Standard reissue model includes a leather-wrapped COA book, an insert mentioning the limited quantities, and an aged Lifton hardshell case.

Only 50 guitars will be made for each of the five colors available from CME as part of this very special run, so order yours from CME today before all have been spoken for!
