Featuring a AAA Flame Maple top and Seymour Duncan “Slash” Open Coil Humbuckers

Premium Outfit limited to 100 guitars worldwide, each hand-signed and numbered by Slash! The Premium Outfit also includes a hard case and custom leather strap.

The Ltd. Ed. Slash Firebird Options: The Ltd. Ed. Slash Firebird Premium Outfit will be limited to only 100 guitars worldwide, each hand-signed and numbered on the back of the headstock by Slash. The Premium Outfit includes a Hard Case with Slash’s “Skull & Tophat” logo in gold, a custom-designed leather guitar strap, and a Certificate of Authenticity. The Ltd. Ed. Slash Firebird guitar will be limited 900 pieces worldwide.

AAA Flame Maple Top: Both the Ltd. Ed. Slash Firebird and Slash Firebird Premium Outfit feature the classic Firebird profile that has gone virtually unchanged since its debut in 1963 with a AAA Flame Maple top and a 3-piece Mahogany body in a Translucent Black finish chosen by Slash. The traditional Firebird style pickguard is layered white and black and has Slash’s “Skull & Top Hat” logo in red. The Mahogany neck is glued to the body with a deep-set neck tenon and has a standard 24.75″ scale and a rounded custom “Slash” profile. The Pau Ferro fingerboard has single-ply cream binding with Pearl trapezoid inlays, a nylon nut, and 22 medium jumbo frets along with a 2-way adjustable truss rod. The back of the Firebird’s traditional reverse headstock has Slash’s Snakepit logo in gold along with his signature. For the Ltd. Ed. Premium Outfit, Slash has signed numbered by-hand the back of the headstock 1-through-100.

Seymour Duncan Humbuckers: Slash is a longtime fan of legend Seymour Duncan’s hand-wound pickups, and for his new Signature Firebirds, Slash choose custom Seymour Duncan “Slash” open coil-humbuckers for the rhythm (APH-1) and lead positions (APH-2). These were Slash’s first custom pickups made with Seymour Duncan and feature Alnico II magnets and are slightly overwound for a boosted output. Each pickup has a single conductor cable, a long-legged bottom plate, and a wooden spacer. Controls include individual Volume and Tone pots with traditional Black Top Hat knobs with metal inserts and pointers along with a Switchcraft® 3-way Toggle switch. Tone controls for both pickups also feature Sprague “Orange Drop” capacitors (0.022uF, 600V, 5%), the same capacitors Slash uses on his custom designed Les Pauls.
