Gibson Custom Shop MURPHY AGED 1957 Les Paul Custom
Click To Enlarge

Here is an extremely rare, very early Custom Shop Murphy Aged Les Paul Custom. Over the past 2 decades, Tom Murphy has become widely known as Gibson's top "aging" expert. He has consistently produced the most realistic and eye-catching pieces featuring top-notch finish checking, well placed wear, small dings, and aging of the metal parts. This piece is a fantastic example of Tom's finest work, showcasing his unmatched attention to detail. The weather-checking is absolutely stunning on the classic ebony nitro finish. Also worth mentioning is the fact that Murphy typically works on Goldtop Standards, which along with its age & condition makes this a "needle in the haystack" find. The last Limited Edition Murphy Aged Black Beauties retailed for over $7500.
