COA personally signed by slash. Gibson and Slash have once again joined forces, this time to bring you a truly authentic, luxurious piece of rock n roll history. The number #8-3096 might not mean much at first glance, but this unassuming series of numbers helped define rock music as we know it - its the serial number of Slashs iconic Sunburst 1958 Les Paul Standard, the first ever production Les Paul Standard model!In 2017, Gibson and Slash set out to painstakingly recreate this invaluable, instantly recognisable instrument down to the finest detail. Back in the 1950s, Gibson set the standard for sustain. Slash has used this to his advantage for the entirety of his career, relying on their full-bodied, resonant sound to forge his trailblazing style. Gibson have aimed to capture this magic by using identical materials and build to the original. The neck is solid mahogany, featuring a long-tenon joint. This means a larger contact area between the neck and the body, giving you that famed never-ending sustain. The fretboard is solid rosewood with a traditional hide-glue fit, ensuring both a pronounced low-end and an unparalleled smooth playability. Believe us when we say you wont want to put it down!
The body again makes use of solid mahogany, adding to the typically chunky sound. Theyve opted for 2-piece maple for the top, adding just the right amount of snap to the Les Pauls smooth tone. Your chords will ring, your riffs will snarl and your leads will shimmer like never before. Again, authenticity is the aim of the game. Gibson have also made use of the famed bumblebee capacitors.
Named after their black and yellow stripes, theyre known for adding a healthy amount of mid-range emphasis, tightening up your lows and highs for velvety tonal smoothness. Make no mistake- this is a lovingly crafted work of art thatll have you spellbound at first sight!
