2008 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Slash Signature Piezo Tobacco Sunburst
This Slash Signature Les Paul just arrived at the shop and she's in very good condition. Gibson made these for a handful of years and was Slash's main guitar during the Velvet Revolver years. I'd describe the condition as a solid 8.5 out of 10 and the guitar is all original. There's a mark here and there and a very light patch of worming on the back that's hard to even see unless at an angle. Ships in its OHSC with all the case candy and COA shown.

This one is more timeless, but bears all the hallmarks & features that get to the heart of the Slash sound: the weight and resonance of a combined mahogany neck and body, Slash's favoured Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro Humbuckers, and the addition of a Piezo Transducer Fishman Powerbridge. You won't believe it until you hear it, but this transforms the sound from everything Les Paul to everything acoustic, and, with the three-way toggle switch, can be blended with the more typical Les Paul tones.
If any guitarist deserves the inaugural designation of Gibson Global Brand Ambassador, then it's Slash. Les Paul for sure gets the ultimate name-check, but go to the News-Lifestyle section of Gibson's website to see no less than 8 signature models to his name over the years - and even that seems to be understating the actual number. Post first-run Guns N Roses, post-Snakepit, Slash joined up with Scott Weiland, Dave Kushner and former GnR bandmates Duff McCagan & Matt Sorum to form Velvet Revolver. Two mighty albums. One mighty guitar. To expand on Slash's words above: "That was the main guitar I used when I toured with Velvet Revolver. F**king killer sounding guitar, that one. It actually screams." Enough said.
