Not only is this a historically relevant instrument Now owned by legendary hard rock icon, Slash, this extremely desirable, storied vintage treasure has been put to good use on the road, featured prominently on the "Not in This Lifetime" tour and now replicated in painstaking detail through the magic of the Gibson Custom Shop. Every detail has been replicated to recreate the incredible vibe and magic that made Slash fall in love with the original. From the ultra accurate Replica '58 C-Shape Neck Profile to the replica plastics, mismatched Kluson tuners and phenomenal Custom Bucker pickups, this '58 replica will get you closer than ever to the real deal.
