The image of Slash wielding a Les Paul is one that has more or less defined rock ‘n’ roll for decades. Gibson have honoured this legacy with the Slash Collection, a range of instruments based on his most recognisable guitars – including his iconic Les Paul Standard. You’ve got two classic Slash finishes to choose from: Appetite Burst and November Burst.
Body & Neck
The guitar is made with the winning formula that the Les Paul is known for. The single Mahogany back with AAA Figured Maple top is the classic combo, playing a huge part in Slash’s legendary Appetite For Destruction sound.
A chunkier, more rounded ’50s Vintage C profile gives the neck a hefty feel, with a Mahogany and Rosewood construction that adds to that sought-after warmth and sustain. Cream binding is used throughout, with acrylic tap inlays polishing off that old-school ‘50s Les Paul aesthetic.
Electronics & Hardware
It wouldn’t be a Slash Collection Les Paul without a set of SlashBucker pickups. These dual uncovered pickups squeeze every last drop of sustain out of the Mahogany/Maple/Rosewood combo, with a healthy layer of sizzle that responds beautifully to the right amount of gain.
The colour co-ordinated hardware has been designed to match each finish, with a subtle Nickel finish. Vintage Keystone tuners and the ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge keep your tuning in check while looking the part. Final appointments include Slash’s signature on the back of the headstock and truss road cover, as well as an optional cream scratchplate in the case. A guaranteed winner.
