Made for a legend. Gibson's Slash Collection includes guitars which honour the legacy of one of the most prolific guitarists in the world: Slash. Designed to replicate the same tone and feel of the man himself, they gleam with beauty and sing with tone. Indeed, they represent the best of the best of the guitars which he used over the years, and share many features. With one of these at your side, it's simply impossible not to rock out hour after hour, day after day, and year after year. They're guitars for life.
Many people would kill for his tone. Luckily, you won't need to resort to murder. The Custom Burstbucker Alnico II pickups on this guitar beam out Slash's original guitar tone with precision, letting you create flowing, saturated lead licks and tight, crunchy rhythm riffs. Being humbuckers, they offer more than enough output to blow the roof off, but just enough balance to make any amp setting sound sublime.
Whether using tonnes of gain or none at all, you'll get a clear, clean, articulate sound every time you hit the strings. The bridge pickup is perfect for bold, powerful riffs, whilst the neck pickup will make the guitar sing to the stars when you're sailing through some lead. Just like Slash and Axl, they're the perfect duo.
It's not all about Slash. You'll be writing your own riffs and forging your own path to guitar greatness. Good thing this signature features the best craftsmanship in the business. A C-shaped mahogany neck not only feels comfortable, but plays exceptionally well. You'll be able to get as creative as you like, with each riff feeling natural and fluid.
Then there's the rosewood fretboard. Refined, sleek, and sustain-friendly, it's a real pleasure to play. Fret transitions will flow, and you'll feel more than comfortable playing in any situation, be it live shows or studio sessions. And the cutaway body shape combined with a set neck joint ensures easy upper fret access. This is what perfection looks like.
Rule the Stage. Slash demands the very best performance from his guitars, which is why this model has an exceptional array of hardware. An ABR-1 tune-o-matic bridge holds your tuning steady, whilst the vintage keystone tuners and a Graphtech nut support your strings perfectly. The Slash Les Paul also comes with a sturdy hardshell case for easy transportation, signature Slash Ernie Ball strings, and four of his Jim Dunlop Tortex picks. Not to mention his classic 'Scully' signature on the back of the headstock. In this guitar, you'll find a world of creativity awaits you.
