The Gibson Custom Murphy Lab is a series of Gibson Custom Shop guitars aged by Tom Murphy. Tom’s guitars are world renowned for their historical accuracy. The range features ‘relic’ Les Paul, SG, ES and Firebird models.

Each guitar comes in a series of distress options; Ultra Light, Light, Heavy, Ultra Heavy, to match Tom’s “blue jean” analogy (some like ‘em torn, others worn and broken in).

The guitars aren't simply given an aged appearance, but engineered and crafted especially by Tom so that they feel well played and broken in. This is achieved through many precise methods, such as careful and detailed distressing on the neck binding; an effect usually only achieved by the wear of a hand sliding up and down the fretboard over a course of years.
