OVERVIEW

An exact recreation of the first standard in all its vintage gloss glory.

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 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.”

Includes hardshell case.
