Introducing the Gibson Murphy Lab! These guitars are aged by Gibson’s own Tom Murphy and have been described as a sort of custom shop “greatest hits album.” The guitar is crafted with a maple top and back, poplar sides, mahogany neck, and has a solid maple centerblock. Finished in with a nitro sixties cherry lacquer, the guitar has some light checking–hence the Ultra Light Aged title. The “Authentic ’61 Skinny C-Shape” neck has an Indian rosewood fretboard and a 12″ fingerboard radius. The instrument comes equipped with CTS 500k pots and has the CustomBucker Alnico 3 pickups. If you have any questions, shoot us a message or give us a call!
