Gibson has unveiled the new Gibson Slash Collection - a range of all-new Slash signature Gibson guitars officially launching at NAMM 2020
Gibson has finally unveiled a range of Slash signature guitars - the Gibson Slash Collection, dropping when NAMM 2020 kicks off.
The Gibson Slash Signature Collection includes 6 guitars designed to replicate key moments in the Guns N' Roses guitarists' history.
The line includes two signature J-45 acoustic guitars and four Les Paul Standard electric guitars. Let's take a closer look.
Gibson Slash Collection Les Paul Standard Guitars
Each Gibson Slash Collection Les Paul Standard has been built with a AAA Maple top and solid Mahogany body - typical of a Les Paul Standard.
However, Slash has personally requested a C-shape neck profile and has ensured each electric guitar has been loaded with his signature Gibson SlashBucker pickups.
Each guitar has been painstakingly put together with hand-wired electronics and Orange Drop capacitors for smooth sound transition.
Fortunately, each guitar also comes with a vintage-style brown hardshell case to keep your guitar safe.
Slash has also added some signature flair that makes these guitars stand out from his previous signature models. Slash’s 'Scully' signature drawing has been included on the back of the headstock and his signature adorns the truss rod cover. However, Gibson has included a blank truss rod cover in the case should you want to switch it up.
You get a set of Slash’s new Ernie Ball strings and Slash Jim Dunlop Tortex picks included, too!
The Slash Signature Gibson Les Pauls come in 4 different finishes: November Burst, Appetite Burst, Vermillion Burst and Anaconda Burst.
Gibson Slash Collection J45 Acoustic Guitars
The new Gibson Slash Collection J45 Standards are actually the first Slash signature acoustic guitars Gibson have ever produced.
Each of these Gibson Slash Collection J-45 acoustic guitars feature a custom Slash requested rounded C-neck profile as well as a 16-inch fingerboard radius - so it's totally comfortable to play. An LR Baggs VTC pickup system has also been installed so the guitar sounds as good plugged in as it does acoustically.
Speaking of the guitars, Slash says; "Developing my new Collection with the new team at Gibson has been really exciting. The quality and attention to detail is next level, and these guitars truly reflect what I play live and in the studio. I think guitarists will be inspired by what we've put together.”
We can't wait to see the Gibson Slash signature guitar collection guitars when they're officially announced at NAMM 2020.
