(Item#839) 2000 Historic Collection Tom Murphy aged 1957 Goldtop reissue, 2000 was thr first year that all dealers could order Murphy aged guitars, I sold this guitar to a local friend about 20 years ago and just bought it back.

Guitar has mostly all stock parts, another set of tuners were installed w/ reissue Kluson buttons and there's a lightweight aluminum tailpiece on it(original parts in case), comes with hang tags, warranty paper, "The Aged 1957 Goldtop Reissue" pamphlet and reissue brown Lifton case.

  Gibson 2001 Custom Shop Dave Johnson - Historic Makeovers Peter Green - Gary Moore Burst Replica
(Item#797) This was a very special project that I did with Dave Johnson that was completed back in 2008 and it's been in the Frank Pine collection since. It is now back with me and is for sale. I bought this as a 2001 '58 figured top reissue specifically for this project. I had been waiting for a reissue with the right maple top. I got the guitar, pulled it apart, and off it went to Dave for the full makeover including complete body, top carve, neck and headstock re-shaping, Brazilian rosewood fingerboard w/ aged celluloid inlays and vintage style truss rod, complete refinish with vintage style nitro lacquer. Then many hours were spent on the aging process. transparencies were made from pictures of the original guitar that were then used to lay out all of the dings, dents, scratches and repairs in the correct spots, even the headstock break and repair was replicated. Guitar has the correct Greenburst serial number on the back of the headstock and the original Historic serial number is stamped inside the control cavity. Dave also aged many of the parts to look correct, I bought a set of vintage nickel Grover tuners for the guitar, also has a set of ThroBak Peter Green pickups that were wound for the guitar in 2009, it's been many years so I really can't recall what the rest of the plastic parts are, the harness is 500K CTS pots and some kind of BumbleBee caps, guitar has been played very little and has no wear other than the intended aging, frets are still perfect. Frank went all out and put together a replica display set-up just like Maverick Music was using for the original guitar when displayed at guitar shows. So an Anvil case and a board with copies of all of the pictures that were displayed with the guitar as seen in the last 2 pictures I've posted. Guitar comes with the original black Custom Shop case, paperwork and Historic Makeovers certificate as seen in picture along with the Anvil case and display set-up. NOTE: There are 2 sets of pictures, when you click on the thumbnail you will see "Image 1" & "Image 2". "Image 1" will load right away and then to see the 2nd set of pictures, click on "Image 2". Serious buyers feel free to call me to discuss in more detail if you'd like. (There are rumors of a new Murphy Lab run of Greenbursts in the works with an estimate price range of 30-50K. If true, that makes this guitar a deal)

  Gibson 2003 Historic Collection Tom Murphy Aged 1959 Les Paul Reissue(Re-Purposed BOTB Replica)
(Item#849)(Consignment) 2003 Historic Tom Murphy aged '59 reissue in Stanley Burst finish. This a very rare guitar that was re-purposed and here's the history: In 2003 Gibson launched a "Beauty of the Burst" replica limited run aged by Tom Murphy, I believe the idea was from Dave Carpenter of Music Machine, the dealer would pick a guitar from the book, Gibson would then try to find a similar maple top, match the burst color and then have Tom Murphy match the aging, these also had the correct original Burst serial number on the back of the headstock and the new Historic serial nunber was stamped on the shelf of the control cavity. Guitars came with 2 certificates, one being a special Beauty of the Burst and the other, the standard Custom Shop Murphy aged. Once the guitar starting being produced, the owners of the original Bursts being copied got wind of the run and that the original serials numbers were being used on the headstocks without their approval, a group of them threatened Gibson with a law suit. Production of the guitars was quickly halted and the program ended abruptly. Only around 20 replicas were actually sold. Around 13 of them were of the "Stanley Burst", 3 of the Joe Perry Burst and 3-4 others. This guitar I have listed was to be one of the Stanley Burst replicas. It has the original warranty - checklist that shows it's serial number as: 91876-931019. 91876 is the serial number for the real Stanley Burst, on the control cavity shelf of this guitar it can be clearly seen that the stamped serial number was scraped off and the stock Historic serial number was then applied to the back of the headstock where it would have had 91876. Also has aged double line Kluson tuners which were on the Stanley Burst replicas. So basically this guitar was then sold as a regular Murphy aged '59 thru Music Machine. Last piece of proof showing that this guitar was originally part of the replica run is how it is still listed in the Gibson system. The serial number 91876-93109 was recenty run and it comes back as "LP59REPLICASB" - LP 59 Reissue Replica 9/27/2003. A copy of this email is included with the guitar. One last thing, the finish date on the warranty paper shows 2/10/2004 which is 5 months after the original finish date. So the delay in time for it to go back thru finish and have the serial numbers changed. I have never run across or seen one of these re-purposed BOTB replicas listed anywhere. Poossibly the only one? I don't know, but even more rare than the actually 20 of them that were done! Here are the specs on the guitar: Guitar weighs 8 lbs 11 ounces, Fairly fat neck that measures: 1st fret - .929", 12th fret - 1.016", good looking Madigascar rosewood fingerboard, I'm not sure but my guess is that the pickups are Burstbucker 2 & 3, 3 in the bridge that reads 8.32K, and 2 in the neck that reads 7.94K, guitar is 100% original and still in the condition that it left Gibson in and comes with case candy, reissue strap, warranty paper, certificate and brown reissue Lifton case.

  Gibson 2018 Custom Shop Tom Murphy Painted Brazilian 1959 Les Paul Reissue
(Item#684)(as new condition) 2018 Tom Murphy painted Brazilian '59 reissue. This guitar is from a run of 20 that were done for a Japanese dealer in 2018 and then sat at Gibson for over a year due to the Japanese dealers not being able to get the CITES approval for import into Japan, so in August of 2019 the guitars were offered to the top US dealers. This run of R9's had "Handpicked" woods, Tom Murphy painted including a more faded and very vintage accurate back color and Brazilian rosewood fingerboads. The burst finish on this guitar is Tom's "Weak Tea Burst" over a real vintage looking eastern maple top, guitar weighs 8 lbs 12 ounces, super comfortable "C" shape neck that measures: 1st fret - .870", 12th fret - .971", super dark and just about black Brazilian board, Custombucker pickups that read: bridge - 7.84K, neck - 7.77K, the control cavity and hang tag are both initialed by Tom. This is a killer looking, sounding and playing guitar! (detailed tone report coming). Guitar comes with hang tags, warranty paper, Murphy certificate and reissue Lifton case. I'm in no rush to sell this guitar and the price is firm. The asking price on a new Murphy Lab painted and aged R9 is 13-14K and IMO this guitar much more desireable and collectable.

  Gibson 2021 Custom Shop VOS 1959 Les Paul Reissue - MGL HotRod Series
(Item#723) A number of years ago I had the MGL HotRod Series which were guitars that I would customize with parts and pickups to fine tune them tonally & aesthestically, I would first listen to them stock and then choose pickups that would work best with the natural voice of the guitars, So I've decided to bring them back as I enjoy tweaking the guitars to get a little more out of them. Here's the next one that I just finished, 2021 '59 reissue in Royal Teaburst VOS finish with a beautiful vintage looking maple top, guitar weighs 8 lbs 7 ounces, "C" shape neck with small shoulders and very comfortable to play, neck measurements: 1st fret - .883", 12th fret - .974", dark chocolate brown Indian rosewood fingerboard that has a very smooth feel to it. Here's the list of parts and work done on the guitar: First off I removed the nickel parts and aged some of them more so that they all had a better match(most of the time the stock VOS parts are a mix, some too shiny still and some more aged), I tried a few sets and combinations of pickups in this guitar and settled on a set of unpotted Duncan Seth Lover PAF's that read: bridge - 7.97K, neck - 7.43K, I removed the shiny covers and installed a lightly aged set of Area59' nickel covers, I also removed and aged the pole pieces, A set of aged reissue "milk bottle" Grover tuners have been installed, TruVintage aged amber bonnet knobs, replica poker chip, ABR-1 aged thumbwheels and more accurate aged aluminum tailpiece, set-up has been gone over and guitar is strung with Ernie Ball 10-46 strings. Really great vintage vibe and tones from this guitar, just enough punchy bottom end without getting muddy, low single notes have good definition, mids are fat with some good nasal honk which makes for a great bridge pickup lead tone, top end has some good sparkle and bite without getting harsh, the Seth Lover pickups really add to the vintage tone. Guitar is in unplayed condition and comes with all paperwork, certificate and reissue Lifton case. (replaced original parts also included)
