For those discerning players and collectors who demand the authentic vibe of Slash’s own well-worn guitar, a separate series of 100 select Custom Shop Slash “Appetite” Les Paul guitars have been hand-aged by the expert craftsmen at the Gibson Custom Shop. To give these remarkable instruments the launch they deserve, we invited Slash to come down to our celebrated Hollywood Platinum Room where he personally signed dozens of the Custom Shop Slash Aged guitars. In fact, he was so impressed with them that he had a hard time choosing one to keep for himself. “This guitar plays and sounds very unique,” he said, “It is a beautiful piece of work.” The Aged/Signed Custom Shop Slash “Appetite” Les Paul guitars are available for purchase starting Friday, May 14th at 10AM PST. The Gibson Custom Shop Slash “Appetite for Destruction” Les Paul VOS and Aged/Signed guitars are available in very limited quantities and will be sold on a first come, first served basis.

AFD Info

The Axe That Launched a Thousand Riffs

From his groundbreaking work with Gn'R, to Slash's Snakepit, to Velvet Revolver and numerous acclaimed solo and side projects, Slash has continued to embody the ultimate rebel rocker, putting addictive licks and eviscerating tone above all else, and throughout he has continued to do it on a Les Paul. To honor this achievement, Gibson introduces the Slash Appetite Les Paul, a guitar equipped with the finest features of the original Les Paul Standards of 1958-’60, and the added punch of Seymour Duncan Signature Series Alnico II Pro Slash humbucking pickups. With looks to kill from a Grade AAA figured maple top with nitrocellulose "Unburst" finish, amber top-hat knobs, rosewood fingerboard with traditional trapezoid inlays, and Slash headstock graphic, and enhanced resonance from a TonePros Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece at one end and a high-density Corian nut at the other, the Slash Appetite Les Paul is as prime a piece of eye candy as it is ear candy.
