1958 Gibson Les Paul Special - Tom Murphy Refin


images via this auction

"Here's an original 1958 Gibson Les Paul Special electric guitar. This instrument is totally original except for the following:

* The guitar was professionally finished and mildly relic'd by Tom Murphy. The lower back plate is signed "Burst Wishes, Tom Murphy".
* Both back plates are reproductions, not original.
* The tailpiece is not original. (Originals are readily available for sale on eBay).
* The guitar has been professionally refretted with larger 59 type frets - plays MUCH better than an original model with thin small frets.
* The case is a late 70's Gibson hardshell case with red interior."
