Slash Signature Epiphone Les Paul
The man in the black top hat himself teamed up with Epiphone to design a signature guitar that captures the rock and roll essence of his own prized Les Paul. The Epiphone Slash Les Paul Standard Pro is that guitar. This custom guitar is made with a mahogany body topped by a AAA flame maple veneer in a beautiful Anaconda Burst green. Powered by two Seymour Duncan Slash Alnico II Pro humbuckers, this gorgeous axe puts out all the warm, thick rock and roll tone and soaring sustain that Slash's own Les Paul is known for. And with Sprague Orange Drop capacitors, you have even more options for tone control, bringing that added sparkle to the high end when you want it. A mahogany custom Slash "D" neck profile gives you a comfortable, playable feel that Slash fell in love with and that has kept this guitar in his hands through nearly every recording he has ever done as well as live shows.
Handbuilt in Santa Barbara, California, the Alnico II Pro humbuckers on this Epiphone Les Paul are known for their soft treble attack as well as low string pull thanks to an Alnico 2 bar magnet and vintage output coil wind. Taken together, these translate to a warm, sweet tone that is as smooth as it is full, plus a sustain that is truly legendary. Singing highs, buttery lows — the tonal combination and sonic styling that has defined decades of straight-ahead rock and roll and made these pickups Slash's choice for over 25 years.
Other Slash-approved features on this Les Paul Standard Pro include a LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece that not only add more sustain but also make string changing easier. A beautiful ebony fingerboard with pearloid trapezoid inlays exudes that classic Les Paul vibe and style and makes playing even more comfortable. In addition, vintage-style 18:1 ratio tulip button machine heads look great and keep this killer axe in tune.
