Product Description

Never before did Gibson make a guitar so close to the original. I know they said this every year, but this time it is for real. The True Historic line incorporates the most desirable Les Pauls ever captured with unprecedented accuracy, with wet-sanded extremely thin nitro finish, all joints glued with animal hide glue for a harder, thinner and more resonant joint, double-carved tops and hand-sanded top and neck, reverse engineered plastics (replica’s of the orginals) rolled binding and more. and then within this series Tom Murphy only ages the very best instruments, the cream of the crop.

It all results in this Stunning True Historic Les Paul 1958 Standard.

  • True Historic Plastics: Molecular level analysis delivers authentic vintage design
  • True Historic Pickup Covers: Designed and engineered based on the originals
  • Double-Carved Top: Authentic vintage dish profile
