Pre Owned '00 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Standard R9 Murphy Aged/Signed w/ OHSC
Tom Murphy is a legend in our industry. Over the years, Tom’s relentless dedication to replicating the magic of vintage instruments has made him an authority in the guitar world, and all you need to do is look at his list of clients to see proof of his skills. Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, Joe Perry of Aerosmith, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Gary Rossington of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Joe Walsh of the Eagles, Dickey Betts of The Allman Brothers, Eric Clapton and Peter Frampton have all called on Tom to apply his signature magic to their guitars.
This Tom Murphy aged Les Paul R9 is simply a joy to play and it’s absolutely beautiful to boot. The tone from the Duncan Antiquity pickups is outstanding, very dynamic and rich. You will be surprised and impressed with just how good this guitar sounds. It comes with the original lifton case. One particularly nice thing about this guitar is the neck profile. Very comfortable, not too thick or wide, just right, a very vintage feel.
Another incredible part of this one is the absolutely stunning looking flame top. It has the classic nice even tight flame maple top these legendary instruments are known for. The top coupled with the masterful aging job of Tom Murphy makes this one a real special piece.
The guitar was recently set up in our repair shop and plays almost effortlessly. There is no certificate with this guitar, as we understand they didn’t issue certificates when they started this series, and it is signed "Burst Wishes" on the back plate by Tom Murphy and Edwin Wilson, the Historic Program Manager at Gibson at the time this guitar was built.
