The Murphy Lab is named after renowned luthier and Master Artisan at Gibson Custom Shop Tom Murphy. It is an elite division of Gibson Custom Shop that strives to deliver classic Gibson models that are historically accurate and realistically aged, with all the mojo and vintage Gibson guitar! Thanks to Tom's expertise, these Gibson Custom Shop Murphy Lab models are the pinnacle of "relic'd" guitars, with a dedication to quality craftsmanship and period-accuracy in aesthetics, tone, and playability that is truly unmatched.

With its iconic ebony/gold look, the Les Paul Custom is one of the most easily recognizable and venerable Gibson electrics. This Black Beauty features a two-pickup configuration, one-piece mahogany body, and an Ultra Light Aged finish treatment. The '57 Les Paul Custom was particularly unique due to it being the first LP Custom Model with humbuckers, as well as it having a one-piece solid mahogany body. With this Custom Shop reissue, you get loads of sustain and a real full-bodied tone from this Les Paul, bolstered by period-accurate specs, but especially thanks to the one-piece body and pickups. The pair of Custombucker Alnio 3 pickups deliver the vintage humbucking tone that fifties LP aficionados know and love. In particular, this Les Paul Custom Black Beauty is a great one for fans of lighter relic packages and big, bold PAF tones, and a picking attack that's unemcumbered by a third middle pickup. Plus, it weighs in at just under 9 pounds! This Gibson Custom Shop Murphy Lab 1957 Les Paul Custom Reissue is the culmination of decades of rich history and attention to detail, and will exceed the expectations of even the most demanding vintage Les Paul players.

The photos in this ad are of the exact Gibson Custom Shop guitar you will receive: serial number 71078. The ebony/gold aesthetic on this LP Custom really pops, and it has a hefty, but not too heavy feel to it. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions about this guitar!
