Gibson Slash 1958 Les Paul First Standard Aged #63

Gibson Custom's Slash 1958 Les Paul "First Standard" is a replica of one of the most noteworthy instruments in Slash's collection. And considering that he owns more than 100 guitars, that's saying a lot! A meticulous re-creation of one of the first sunburst Les Pauls ever made, this guitar formed the basis for every 'burst that followed. From its maple-capped mahogany body to its dual humbuckers, the Slash 1958 Les Paul "First Standard" captures the magic of one of the most collectable electric guitars of all time. These Slash 1958 Les Paul "First Standard" guitars are a limited run of 100....In May of 1958, a worker at the Gibson factory pulled two Les Pauls — serial numbers 8 3087 and 8 3096 — off the line for an experiment. Instead of painting the guitars a solid color, the worker created an eye-catching design with a yellow center framed by a red border. The sunburst Les Paul was born!.....Number 8 3087 recently sold for $625,000.00 at a vintage guitar shop in Nashville. Number 8 3096, which is the basis for the Slash 1958 Les Paul "First Standard," is in the hands of legendary rock guitarist, Slash. Both guitars were verified by Gibson to be the first two sunburst models ever made, marked in their ledger books as "2 LP Spec finish." Although Slash's '58 Les Paul is one of two original sunbursts, it was the first to feature a two-piece center-seamed maple top — a key feature of the Les Paul Standard. This makes Slash's '58 the first production Les Paul Standard!........Known primarily for his work with the hard rock band Guns N' Roses during the late 1980s, Slash has garnered a well-earned reputation as one of rock's preeminent guitarists. Named the runner-up on Time magazine's list of "The 10 Best Electric Guitar Players" in 2009, and No. 65 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of "The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" in 2011, Slash continues to receive accolades from critics and music fans alike. Aside from his enormous success with Guns N' Roses, Slash has also achieved acclaim with his side project, Slash's Snakepit, and as a member of the supergroup Velvet Revolver. He's recorded three solo albums, two of those with his band, Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators.
