There are few names so synonymous with the Les Paul than Saul "Slash" Hudson. The top hat wearing axe slinger has earned multiple platinum albums in a career spanning more than three decades with Guns 'N Roses, Velvet Revolver and most recently, his solo project with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. It's fair to say to then, that Slash has earned his reputation as a true guitar hero and the new "Inspired by Gibson" Slash Collection celebrates some of his most influential guitars.
The Epiphone Slash Les Paul Standard boasts all of the classic features you'd expect to find on a Les Paul, with a few of Slash's personal touches thrown in for good measure. The Slash Les Paul features the tried and trusted combination of a Mahogany Body with a AAA flame Maple veneer cap, and a Mahogany neck with Indian Laurel fretboard. Together, they deliver a comfortable playing experience with sustain for days! An Epiphone LockTone™ Tune-O-Matic™ bridge and Stop Bar tailpiece ensure rock solid tuning stability.
Some of Slash's personal specs include a Slash Custom C-shape neck, Epiphone Custom ProBucker™ pickups, CTS® potentiometers with Orange Drop® capacitors and Epiphone Strap Locks. Each and every guitar in the Slash Collection features Slash’s “Skully” signature drawing on the back of the headstock and his signature on the truss rod cover. The "Victoria" Les Paul Standard is beautifully presented in a road ready, custom hardshell case, ensuring it'll be safe and sound no matter how raucous the after party gets!
