GIBSON Releases The Guitar Of Slash’s Dreams

This very special instrument is the result of a collaboration between Slash and the skilled artisans at Gibson Custom Shop to create the ultimate Les Paul Standard based on Slash’s favorite Historic specifications and appointments, including a genuine solid Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard. The coveted sonic and visual appeal of this species of Rosewood, along with the fact that it has not been widely available for over 50 years, helps ensure that this Les Paul is both an accurate replica of a priceless golden-era instrument and a timeless collectible as well. It is, using Slash’s words, a “Brazilian Dream.” Each will be hand-signed and numbered by the man himself, and each includes an exclusive green-lined Lifton™ lacquered case and a variety of fun Slash collateral items. Limited to just 150 instruments available to purchase in the United States only.

Cost: $ 12,999
