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.


Hear the Custom Shop Greeny in our exclusive demo:


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 Gibson Custom Kirk Hammett Greeny 1959 Les Paul Standard is a remarkable recreation of this legendary guitar, and artfully aged to match the original by the Murphy Lab.
