The Gibson Slash Les Paul Standard Limited Edition Electric Guitar in Vermillion Burst represents all the influential Gibson guitars played by rock legend Slash in his incredible career, inspiring multiple generations of players around the world. With a wealth of premium features, impeccable form and unrivaled functionality, the Slash Les Paul Standard look and sounds worthy of any guitar hero.
AAA Flame Maple Top
The Slash Les Paul Standard has a AAA flamed maple top with a solid mahogany body, a classic tonewood combination. Alongside the characteristic Les Paul depth and fullness of tone you get a fantastic bite in the high registers, making this guitar great for a variety of styles, whether its big blues bends or hard rock riffs. Due to its density mahogany naturally sustains better, so you'll find this guitar great for those epic Slash-style guitar solos.
Matched to the body you get a Mahogany neck shaped to the 50s Vintage profile. This profile ensures a comfortable playing experience whether fretting chords or during single note playing. The Rosewood fretboard feels fantastic under your fingers and is marked by Acrylic Trapezoid Inlays to ensure you never miss a note. Slash's 'Scully' signature drawing appears on the back of the headstock with the guitar legend's signature adorning the truss rod cover, a subtle touch that makes this guitar stand out from your typical Les Paul Standard.
Custom 'BurstBucker' Pickups
The Slash Les Paul Standard has a pair of Custom Burstbucker Alnico II pickups to ensure the full width and breadth of tone are translated to the amplifier. All the electronics are hand-wired with orange drop capacitors to ensure a minimum of hum and buzz and maximum rock guitar tone. Two volumes knobs and two tone knobs alongside a three-way toggle switch give you plentiful options to sculpt your sound, so whether it's the smooth lead of the neck pickup or the gritty bite of the bridge, you're completely covered no matter which situation you find yourself in.
