Gibson True Historic Tom Murphy PAINTED & AGED 1959 Les Paul GOLDIE!

Here is an absolutely killer Gibson Murphy Masterpiece from 2016! True Historic with updated specs to resemble the Collector's Choice #2 (CC2) Goldie '59 Les Paul. This is basically a higher-spec'd Goldie with all the updated vintage-correct parts, aged & painted by Tom Murphy.

This is a truly great-playing and sounding Burst reissue! The guitar looks to be in excellent condition but there is some fading on the aniline dye-finished back and neck. It really adds to the vintage vibe of this guitar. One of the better reissue Les Paul's we've had of late. It's a good one! Comes with all the paperwork and case candy as shown. This was a Japan-Only guitar so only the highest quality was acceptable and it shows!
