Gibson’s shipping records confirm Slash’s original 1958 Les Paul guitar (serial #8 3096) was one of the first two sunburst Les Pauls ever made and the first ever to feature a two-piece center-seamed maple top, a key feature of the Les Paul Standard. That makes Slash’s guitar the first production Les Paul Standard model! So, this year Gibson Custom and Slash set out to capture the magic, vibe and history of #8-3096 for a special run of replicas. The resulting prototype was sent to Slash and his reaction made all the painstaking work worth it: “Mind-blowing. I couldn’t have possibly wanted anything more.” Now is your chance to own an instantly-collectible, playable work of art which pays homage to a legendary player and a legendary Gibson model -- a perfect replica of Slash’s “First Standard.”
This guitar has some scratches and nicks on the back and bottom sides; namely a lacquer burn line as result of leaning against a guitar stand's rubber insulation for too long. There are also chips as displayed in the photos above. Some presence of other light scratches on other areas of the back and front of the guitar are also evident. The back and bottom sides of this guitar are not perfect. If you would like more photos, please do not hesitate to request them from me.
