The Gibson Custom Slash Les Paul Flame Top Signed Guitar in Anaconda Burst is the outstanding culmination of considerable testing and touring of the artist's prototype models, which he used extensively during a hectic 2016 and 2017 schedule. The limited-edition model features an exclusive green Anaconda Burst finish, which accentuates the two-piece figured maple top beautifully. As one of a very limited number of models to be numbered and signed by Slash, you can rest assured that you are getting a truly unique addition to your collection.
Classic Les Paul design
As one might expect, the Gibson Custom Slash Les Paul adheres strictly to the traditional Les Paul body design, which has laid the foundation of Slash's tone for decades. The body is built using lightweight solid mahogany, which establishes a rich and warm foundation. As noted above, the top is crafted from two-piece figured maple, which ensures that the mid to high notes ring out with the utmost clarity. The heavenly Anaconda Burst finish is protected by a layer of nitrocellulose lacquer, to maintain its pristine condition for many years to come.
Sturdy yet supple neck
Fitted to the body is a solid mahogany neck, which is connected via a long tenon joint for improved sustain, and reinforced using a hide glue fit. The neck is shaped to a custom Slash taper, with a .910-inch depth at the 1st fret extending to a 1.05-inch depth at the 12th fret. No introduction need be made with regard to Slash's mastery of the guitar, but suffice it to say that if his own custom profile is good enough for him, it is good enough for the rest of us.
Fast and free fingerboard
Paired with the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are adorned with trapezoid inlays to guide your way in style. Thanks to the customary single-cutaway body profile of the Les Paul, every fret is within easy reach so that you can comfortably noodle your way to the highest reaches of the fingerboard. Binding guarantees that seamless transition between frets are the norm, removing unwanted obstacles to maximise that lightning fast playing feel.
Slash Signature Seymour Duncan pickups
It is only fitting that the Gibson Custom Slash Les Paul be equipped with Slash's Signature Seymour Duncan APH-1 and APH-2 pickups. Since the recording of the seminal Guns N' Roses' album "Appetite for Destruction", Slash has favoured the APH-1, with Seymour Duncan creating the APH-2 in its visage. The intensity of Slash's playing style is magnified when these pickups are cranked, but also retain a subtlety when rolled back during more intimate moments. Control over the pickups comes in the form of 500K CTS Volume and Tone pots, with hand-wired harness that feature Sprague Orange Drop capacitors, so that no matter how minor the attenuation, you have the smoothest of control with absolute precision. A Switchcraft toggle switch affords the same level of precision when changing between the bridge and neck pickups.
The body is home to a nickel-finished lightweight aluminium ABR-1 bridge, which creates a seamless transition between strings and body to optimise intonation and sustain. Every inch of the Gibson Custom Slash Les Paul has been pored over to ensure it is completed to the highest possible standard. A brown/pink Custom Shop case is supplied with every model to guarantee that your pride and joy is well protected for many years to come.
