Gibson / '58 Reissue Les Paul Std - Murphy Aged / 1998 / Cherry Sunburst / Guitar
We are proud to offer for sale a fantastic example of Tom Murphy’s best and earliest work. This is a Gibson plaintop ’58 Reissue hand picked by Tom when he set up his company Guitar Preservation in 1997/8. During this time he was producing his first aged reissue’s. These guitars arguably kicked the whole relic/ageing craze off, and this example is the quality you would expect from Tom Murphy during a period where he was keen to develop a reputation.
The weather checking to the body, neck and headstock is incredibly detailed, along with the light dings, scrapes and aged hardware; it looks like the real deal!
Weighs in at a very comfortable 8.10lbs, comes fully documented, and is a stunning guitar both to look at and play. It is the 32nd guitar aged by Tom, completed in December of ’98, and comes with his Guitar Preservation certificate, Tags, polish cloth and case. An exceptionally cool, rare guitar!
