    Something about it really annoys me. The green is cool but maybe the cream plastic and knobs just dont sit right. Some black in their place would look much better, in my head anyway

    Have to say I think the plain tops, in this color, look much better than the flame tops IMO.

    I appreciate they are not putting the Slash logo in place of the Les Paul signature. It looks cheesy on the GT's they did awhile back, but to each their own.

    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.”

    I'm a slash fan, and even I don't want this one...The history behind the real deal is cool, but not 8K cool, and I don't think slash's signature adds 4K to the price.

    I think it's hideous. Also a fan, and also no interest.
