2020 Gibson Les Paul Standard 1959 R9 Reissue M2M Lemon "Derring" Burst Slash Duncan APH-2S
Here's a really sweet child for the Slash fans out there this R9 looks just like Slash's Derring '59 replica. This 2020 R9 finished in custom M2M Lemon Burst was just traded into the shop and is outfitted with a set of Seymour Duncan Slash Signature APH-2S pickups. Our customer went through great lengths to find the right donor R9 with the color & flame top to then add the Slash Sig zebra pickups, and 60s LP knobs. It comes really come close to replicating that famous instrument of Slash's. This guitar has it all the killer top, tone, and weight. She's free of any major player wear and I'd rate a solid 9.5 out of 10 condition wise. The pick guard was removed and the holes filled. The guitar ships with all of its case candy, COA, and its OHSC. Don't wait on this one as it won't be here for long.

As per Seymour Duncan:
The classic tone of Appetite for Destruction in a pickup.
When Slash was given the honor of having a Gibson Les Paul Signature model built, we sent over the same Alnico 2 Pro humbuckers that he has used for decades. Turns out, the new guitars sounded noticeably different than the original. So we accepted the challenge to make him a new pickup that would make all of his new signature guitars sound just like the original AFD Les Paul. The result is the Slash Signature Model humbucker. We used a different mag wire and winding spec, that, when combined with the alnico 2 bar magnet, provided exactly what was needed to push a stock Les Paul toward that familiar sustain, crunch, and midrange that was so characteristic of the tone of Slash’s original Derrig Les Paul copy.The Slash humbucker set is hand built in Santa Barbara the same way we built his originals in the 80s, using a nickel silver bottom plate with long mounting legs, single conductor braided lead wire, maple spacer, paper tape, and wax potting.
