Here we have Gibson Custom Shop Collector's Choice #1 Melvyn Franks/Gary Moore, and the later iteration Murphy Lab Kirk Hammett Greeny! Both guitars are #13 of their limited runs and will not be sold separately! You wont find a matching serial set like this anywhere else!


If you're on this page, you more than likely know the story behind "Greeny" and its place in rock history. In 2010, the Gibson Custom Shop started the Collector's Choice series to pay tribute to iconic Les Pauls that had earned their place in history. Fittingly, Collector's Choice #1 paid tribute to the 1959 Les Paul Standard formerly owned by Peter Green of Fleetwood Mac then later, Thin Lizzy guitarist Gary Moore.

Not only is this a stunning, aged example of Collector's Choice 01 with a moderately figured top and a beautiful, faded "unburst" finish, it's a guitar with a fascinating wiring configuration. The orientation of the neck pickup reversed to create a unique "out of phase" middle position tone. 


Several years later, "Greeny" was purchased for Kirk Hammett for an undisclosed amount of money (somewhere betweeen 500k and 2 million). It has since become his go-to both in the studio and in live settings. In 2022, the Gibson Murphy Lab and Tom Murphy produced another painstaking limited run of 50 Greeny tribute guitars based off of Kirk Hammett's current iteration of Greeny. 


Both guitars come with their original hardshell cases. CC 01 comes with the COA and case candy. Kirk Hammett includes the COA signed by Kirk Hammett, a strap, its warranty info, and its original hangtags. Both guitars are in factory-new condition. Cases may show minor signs of wear.


Please call before purchasing. Due to shipping and insurance restrictions, we would prefer to hand-deliver or arrange pick up of these guitars. For any additional photos and video, please email us.
