The Gibson USA 2018 Limited Edition Slash Les Paul Electric Guitar in Anaconda Burst is the culmination of two years' worth of tour-tested brilliance, poured into a model that is worthy of bearing the legendary guitarist's name. Equipped with appointments that Slash himself has given the thumbs up to, this limited edition Les Paul also comes with a unique Slash Snakeskin hardshell case, and Gibson's accessory kit, to get you from practise room to the gig in style. Limited to just 450 models worldwide, you'll have to move fast if you want to get your hands on one of these exclusive guitars.
Classic Les Paul design
The Les Paul and Slash have been an unstoppable partnership throughout the guitar legend's career. With his trusty axe in his hands, he has travelled the world, written some of the most memorable solos that have been the part of the soundtrack to many people's lives, and been a part of one of the biggest rock bands of all time.
The Gibson USA 2018 Slash Les Paul is built to the same pedigree as his touring model, with a classic tonewood combination on hand to generate his powerful tones. The body is crafted using mahogany, which establishes a stirring mid-range tonal foundation. The top is crafted using grade AA flamed maple, which doesn't just look beautiful with its green Anaconda Burst paint job, but accentuates the upper-mid to high frequency range to lavish attention of your lead work with sparkling clarity.
Sturdy yet supple neck
Joined to the body is a durable and highly playable mahogany neck, which is shaped to Slash's custom thick profile for a substantial yet manageable feel in the hand. The comfortable 24.75-inch scale length eases tension whilst enhancing tonal warmth, offering you the best of both world's when executing speedy licks.
Paired with the neck is a divine rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are adorned with acrylic trapezoid inlays. Shaped to a classic 12-inch radius, smooth string bends are assured without unwanted choking, allowing you to sail through solos with ease. Rolled-over-fret binding ensures that transitions between frets couldn't be smoother.
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-2N and APH-2B 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 image. These beauties offer a true reflection of Slash's playing style, allowing a subtle output to be pulled when the controls are dialled back, and leaping forth with a searing heat when cranked.
The body is home to a nickel-finished lightweight aluminium ABR bridge and stop bar tailpiece, which anchor each string to optimise intonation and sustain. The headstock is home to vintage-style keystone tuners that uphold tuning integrity dutifully throughout the most energetic of performances. Gold top hat control knobs afford smooth attenuation from the slightest to the most dramatic of adjustments.
If you have ever wanted to follow in his footsteps - or just fancy adding an exceptional guitar to your arsenal -, the Gibson USA 2018 Limited Edition Slash Les Paul Guitar in Anaconda Burst is your dream model.
