You're looking at a 2012 Gibson Les Paul 1960 Historic Murphy Aged, with a Lemon Burst finish on a gorgeous flamed maple top, nickel hardware… and if that’s not enough for you, this one also has a gorgeous Madagascar Rosewood fretboard. The grain on this fretboard looks like top grade brazilian rosewood… just spectacular! If you like the authentic vintage vibe of this guitar, you’re going to flip when you hear it… The tone is off the charts. I should also mention; the neck profile is more like an R9. This is more of a medium C profile… not too slim and not too fat.. It’s just perfect. If you’re looking for “one of the good ones”, stop looking.. This is the one! She's 100% original and ready to rock your world!

She was just born on September 7th, 2012 and has been totally babied. I just picked this up from the original owner, who only played the guitar gently and sparingly in a smoke-free home. The finish checking, nicks, dings and scratches were all done artfully by the great Tom Murphy. There is no actual play-wear to report here. The neck is straight, with no cracks or repairs… the frets are excellent, with their entire life ahead of them… and she sounds like a great R0 should! Also included is the original Lifton Gibson custom shop hard shell case, and even includes the case candy and Murphy signed certificate, just as shown in the last picture! Whoever brings this baby home is gonna be completely STOKED!!
