br /> Velvet Revolver axeman Slash has revealed that he only used one guitar when recording the majority of the tracks for his upcoming solo album.

Writing on his MySpace blog, the former Guns N' Roses musician stated that he will give a full rundown of what equipment he utilised as soon as his new LP is out, but gave a few clues as to what his fans can expect.

"I plan on posting what gear was used on what songs - although most of it was done with one guitar and two amps," he remarked, adding that there were "a lot of interesting mike set-ups".

Slash is most commonly associated with the Gibson Les Paul, but he has experimented with a range of music gear through his career, including a BC Rich Mockingbird, a Fender Stratocaster and a Gibson Flying V.

He has also been known to use a range of amplifiers, utilising a Vox AC30 alongside Fender tube amps when recording Velvet Revolver's debut album Contraband in 2004.
