8 lbs 5 oz's !!!

A real tone monster.


You will have a hard time finding an R-9 to compete with this one... She is a collector's gem, hand-aged by the legendary Tom Murphy and with a beautiful truly authentic vintage looking  AAAA Flame-top. It also has some beautiful super light weight mahogany paired with it. The result is a work of playable art. Gibson's legendary aging expert has truly perfected his craft, producing some of his most valued works in our era. The aging is mainly focused on delicate finish-checking, fading of the plastic & metal parts, minor dings on the front and back and patina of the binding; Basically a recreation of a 1959 "Burst", that was played for a while, and then spent most its life safely tucked in the case. The results are stunningly realistic, and will make you feel like you are easily playing $350,000 worth of Les Paul history.


While the aging is amazing, another thing that pops out is the top. It is a true beauty and will look amazing in any collection.The performance of this guitar is everything you'd expect from the Gibson Custom Shop, with top-shelf craftsmanship & sweet legendary tone. Make this Murphy Aged 1959 Reissue Les Paul yours and add some unique "mojo" to your collection.
