This "Greeny" reproduction of the iconic 1959 Les Paul Standard owned by Peter Green, Gary Moore, and now Kirk Hammett is available in new condition from our TRM Reserve Collection.  See this exact guitar in action on our YouTube channel here.  The guitar plays beautifully and really sounds great, being in general the closest in sound to a real 1950s Les Paul that I've heard from the Gibson Custom Shop in the 30 years of its existence.  Plus, this has the added bonus of the custom pickups and wiring to recreate the sound of the original "Greeny".  In addition to the Murphy Lab finish and aging of the guitar, they have also done light aging of the Lifton case.

From Gibson: 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.
