2017 Gibson Custom Shop Slash Les Paul 1958 Reissue “First Standard” #8 3096 Aged by Historic Makeovers
Gibson於1958年在博覽會上首次展出了兩支擁有楓木Top與Cherry Burst配色的新款Les Paul，其序號為#8 3096與#8 3087，並命名為Les Paul Standard。直到現今，50年代Les Paul Standard的造型與規格成為了經典，吉他歷史上不可獲缺的一幕。而其中序號#8 3096為Slash本人於80年代一直保留到至今的珍藏，直到近期才證實Slash手中這支#8 3096 Les Paul Standard是當年改變吉他歷史的首款Les Paul Standard之一。
True Historic是Custom Shop產線中等級最高的系列，從最頂級的木料、色漆、黏膠、配件等都和以往普通的Reissue系列完全不同，原廠給True Historic的定義是一把接近完美的Gibson復刻琴，不接音箱光是空弦就能感受到最真實的木頭共鳴回饋，而這也是眾多收藏家們公認Slash一系列復刻琴中音色最好的一款，特選的3.7KG輕量桃花心木琴身，琴頸為特規'58 C-Shape Profile，手感相當舒適。原廠搭配一組複製原琴音色的CustomBucker拾音器，這組特製的拾音器能讓音色更接近原琴上的PAF，前段音色非常甜，顆粒飽滿，後段出力大，擁有著Les Paul濃厚又帶有粘膩的獨特鼻音。
此琴原為全球限量150支的Slash Les Paul 1958 Reissue “First Standard” #8 3096 Replica Vintage Gloss版本，經由Historic Makeovers的專業又精細的舊化做工後，賦予了它更接近原琴的外觀，並在琴頭後方重新蓋上了全新的元年序號(因版權關係，序號與原琴不同)。Historic Makeovers是美國知名舊化工廠，擁有相當多50年代元年Les Paul的維修經驗與技術，原始較厚的漆面已經被完全刨除並重新上了更接近原琴的色漆與較薄的Nitrocellulose Lacquer透明漆，這樣能使顏色與漆面的質感更正確。琴身舊化方式也與Gibson Custom原廠刀刻不同，大部分是利用熱破壞方式讓表面透明漆自然龜裂，整體舊化呈現的更加自然，更像是因為時間所造成的磨損，而護板貼紙殘膠的痕跡、琴身與Binding裂紋的舊化細膩度，包括Pickup Cover、Jack Plate、Truss Rod Cover等，也都更換成最接近元年Les Paul的樣式，甚至連琴盒都加以舊化，所有舊化的細節都是Gibson Custom原廠無法比擬的。Slash Les Paul 1958 Reissue “First Standard” #8 3096 Replica是Gibson一系列復刻琴中非常經典又受歡迎的頂尖琴款，舊化與舊化簽名板在市場上相當稀有，價格也持續上漲中，舊化簽名板甚至在歐美市場上的價格已經超過台幣一百萬。近全新收藏琴，有興趣的玩家們把握收藏機會。

From Gibson Custom:
The original Les Paul Model featured a gold finish from its introduction in 1952 until it received a new cherry sunburst in 1958 along with a new name, "Les Paul Standard." It debuted at the July 1958 Music Industry Trade Show in Chicago but it didn't catch on until its beautiful appearance and resonant properties inspired the likes of Keith Richards, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Mike Bloomfield, Duane Allman, Peter Green, Joe Walsh, Joe Perry -- and eventually Slash -- to perform with one. And although Slash uses his beat-up 1958 Les Paul Standard regularly in the studio, he didn't know until a recent discovery that it was a hugely important piece of guitar history. Shipping records confirm that Slash's guitar (serial #8 3096) was actually sent to that historic 1958 Music Industry Trade Show as 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. It was perhaps the most advantageous and laborious guitar recreation project Custom Shop has ever undertaken given the extreme finish checking, wear and corrosion of the original, not to mention the exact replication of the neck dimensions, colors and construction. 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 this instantly-collectible, playable work of art which pays homage to both a legendary player and legendary Gibson model -- a perfect replica of Slash's First Standard.
