Limited-edition Les Paul modeled on the instrument Slash used to record “Sweet Child O’ Mine” now available for preorder
Online music gear dealer Musician’s Friend is featuring rock icon Slash on the cover of its April Guitar Buyer’s Guide catalog and is taking pre-orders for the Gibson Slash “Appetite for Destruction” Les Paul Electric Guitar, due to ship in early April.
Gibson honors Slash’s lifetime achievements with an extremely limited-edition guitar patterned after the guitar Slash played on the platinum-selling Guns ’N‘ Roses album, Appetite For Destruction—with features found on original 1958-1960 Les Paul Standards. Updates include Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro Slash humbuckers.
In conjunction with the release of this historic instrument, Musician’s Friend has posted an interview with Slash in which he talks about his signal chain and most recent music projects. Fans can watch it at the Musician’s Friend catalog cover page.
