Inefficient Quality Control but the sound is amazing
lcesario78 15.02.2021
The toggle switch on brand new, US$ 3k guitar turned out to be faulty, fresh out of the box.

1. If you try to switch to the bridge or neck pickups, the switch gets pulled right back to the middle, without interference. Seems like the toggle is not sticking out of the cavity enough to lock in place when you switch positions. It astonishes how this was overlooked at inspection. A pretty basic thing to notice.

2. Another thing that bothered me was some irregularity on the 2nd fret of the G string that makes the note almost bend if you move your finger slightly.

Now this is how a Les Paul should sound like. If you, like me, wanted an upgrade from your Epiphone or other generic Les Paul, this instrument is on another level in terms of tone. And my Epiphone was completely modded. It had Gibson pickups, CTS pots, Gotoh bridge and Schaller locking tuners. And it never stood a chance against this Gibson. The Gibson Les Paul seems to unlock tones you never though your instrument could give. The difference is like listening to a song in a compressed mp3 and then listening to it again in a Wave format. I'm not sure way that is, as I'm not a professional, but for me the only explanation is the wood (even though a lot of people claim that wood doesn't affect tone as we like to believe). But I can't find any other explanation.

Regarding the issues above, I'm in talks with Thomman to try to get the instrument replaced. I'll give Gibson a vote of confidence and stick with the same model, hoping that I'll have better luck next time.

There are problems with the neatness of the fingerboard lining, traces of some glue and something like that. The case is of poor quality, not made in Canada, which is certainly strange... But the sound of the guitar is just great!! It is quite different from the classic Les Paul 50" Standard models.. The guitar is simply excellent.

Salut à tous,
Avant toute chose : j'ai eu la chance de posséder le modèle AFD 2010, j'ai actuellement la Vermillion de 2013, et je viens de revendre la Tobacco Burst de 2008. J'ai donc quelques points de comparaison en terme de Gibson SLASH (j'ai eu aussi entre les mains la goldtop de 2008 pendant quelques jours)

Lutherie :
Parfaite, rien à dire, finition exemplaire. Un sustain de dingue, le meilleur que j'ai eu sur une Les Paul (et j'en ai eu bien plus que les modèles mentionnés plus haut). Le manche est un pur 50', donc assez épais (plus que la Vermillion et l'AFD de 2010), mais hyper confortable bien que j'ai de petites mains.

Electronique / accastillage :
je n'aime pas les potards de volume, pas assez progressifs à mon goût, je les ai changé pour des 300K bien plus fonctionnels. Le chevalet et le cordier sont assez fins/vintage, j'aurais aimé retrouvé les tune-o-matic de la Vermillion, mais ils font le job. Rien à dire sur les mécaniques, parfaites.

Le son :
Alors ces Slashbuckers ?! Franchement excellents, pour ne pas dire identiques aux Seymour Duncan APH2S (un poil plus gras). D'origine ils sont réglés beaucoup trop près des cordes, mais une fois bien réglés on retrouve le fabuleux son Slash que nous aimons tous.. le micro manche est une tuerie. Avec un Silver Jubilee on ne fait pas mieux.
En son clair c'est très propre, bien défini aussi. Ces micros sont hyper polyvalents.

Case :
le case fait un peu plastique d'extérieur, ceux des années 90 étaient mieux finis, et je préfère les noirs actuels. Mais bon, ça fait le job, on ne le met pas sur scène de toute façon.

Synthèse :
Excellente Les Paul, lutherie et finition au top, un son Slash sans aucune contestation possible. Avec un changement de potards de volume et un bon réglage micros, elle est parfaite pour moi.
Merci Gibson ! God Bless You Slash..
Rock n' Fuckin' Roll !!!
