The Epiphone Limited Edition Slash Firebird Electric Guitar is an outstanding model borne from a unique collaboration between Epiphone and Gibson Brands Global Brand Ambassador - and a true living legend of the guitar - Slash. Designed to suit Slash's uncompromising playing style, his signature Firebird features unique appointments and touches throughout to make this a remarkable rendition of the timeless model. Limited to a maximum of 900 worldwide, this Firebird would make an outstanding addition to any guitarist's arsenal.
Classic Firebird style
The Limited-Edition Slash Firebird adheres to the same ground-breaking offset design that we've all come to know and love. Slash has opted for a three-piece mahogany body to establish a deep and resounding mid-range tonal foundation with plenty of clout behind it. Paired with the mahogany is a AAA flame maple top, which has been finished in a brooding translucent black paint job. A traditional Firebird style pickguard in layered white and black has been applied to the upper bout of the body, complete with Slash's "Skull & Top Hat" logo in eye catching red.
Sturdy mahogany neck
Joined to the body via a deep-set neck tenon joint with glued-in reinforcement is a stable mahogany neck for maximum support. The neck extends along a standard 24.75-inch scale length and has been carved to a rounded custom "Slash" profile to suit the playing feel favoured by the man himself.
Paired with the neck is a sumptuous pau ferro fingerboard, which is home to 22 medium-jumbo frets that are lavished with pearl trapezoid position inlays to guide your way in style. Single-ply cream binding supports seamless transition between frets for a lightning fast feel in the hand. The 12-inch fingerboard radius accommodates smooth string bends and rapid switching so that you can sail through licks and riffs with abandon.
Slash's Seymour Duncan humbuckers
For many years Slash has favoured Seymour Duncan's hand-wound pickups, so it is rather fitting that his signature Firebird should be equipped with a pair of his signature open-coil humbuckers. In the neck position you'll find the APH-1 and in the bridge position the APH-2, an expressive pairing that delivers everything from crystal clear high-end clarity to raucous chunky mids. Each one has been overwound for increased output, and feature Alnico II magnets with a design that matches Slash's first custom pickups from Seymour Duncan. Black Top Hat control knobs afford control over the volume and tone, whilst Sprague "Orange Drop" capacitors feature on both tone controls (as used by Slash on his custom-designed Les Pauls).
The body is home to Epiphone's ever-faithful solid nickel hardware including a classic ABR tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, a partnership that creates a seamless connection between strings and body for flawless intonation and epic sustain. The headstock is fitted with Kluson Reissue Firebird Banjo-style machine head with an impressive 12:1 ratio for improved stability as you rock out.
