Gibson Custom Murphy Lab Kirk Hammett “Greeny” 1959 Les Paul Standard

For those looking for an unforgettable experience that celebrates the legacy of one of the most iconic guitars in the history of music, along with its owner, one of rock’s most legendary guitarists, Gibson is offering a once-in-a-lifetime package. Included is a Collector’s Edition Kirk Hammett “Greeny” 1959 Les Paul Standard guitar hand-made by the expert luthiers of the Gibson Custom Shop and artfully aged to match the original by the Murphy Lab, an evening with Kirk Hammett, and a visit to Gibson’s World Headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee.

Three Legendary Guitarists, One Legendary Guitar
Gibson Custom Shop is the pinnacle of craftsmanship, quality, and sound excellence. Each instrument celebrates Gibson's legacy through accuracy, authenticity, and attention to detail.
The story of “Greeny” is shrouded in mystery, but few guitars are as illustrious. Greeny is one of the most iconic original Les Paul Standards ever made, with a unique sound as recognizable as the guitar itself. Previously owned by Peter Green, it was used throughout his time with Fleetwood Mac and later sold to Gary Moore, who used it for three decades with Thin Lizzy and as a solo artist. Now owned by Kirk Hammett, Greeny has passed through the hands of three legendary guitarists. Its distinctive sound is partly from the out-of-phase middle switch position due to the neck pickup’s reversed magnetic polarity. The Kirk Hammett "Greeny" 1959 Les Paul Standard from the Gibson Custom Shop is artfully aged to match the original by the Murphy Lab and was inspired by this legendary guitar. With its Indian rosewood fretboard, it gives players around the world the opportunity to experience some of the magic of "Greeny" for themselves. A brown/pink Lifton™ reissue 5-latch case is also included.
