Gibson Slash Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar

A comfy rosewood-capped ’50s vintage neck provides incredible playability. Because of the two Custom Burstbucker Alnico II pickups, you’ll get a mid-forward sustain and crunch that any Slash fan will recognize when you connect into your British stack.
Hand-wired electronics, color-coordinated hardware, and a slew of Slash-approved extras distinguish the Slash Les Paul Standard.
Classic construction with Slash’s personal touches
The Gibson Slash Les Paul Standard is inspired by the influential Gibson guitars that Slash has utilized throughout his career. It has a solid mahogany body, AAA figured maple top, and a comfortable ’50s Vintage neck. A hand-wired harness with Orange Drop capacitors serves as the electronics.
Color-coordinated hardware components are also included, as is Slash’s “Scully” signature drawing on the back of the headstock and Slash’s signature on the truss rod cover. Sweetwater’s guitarists are true Les Paul fans, and they adore the sound, beauty, and feel of this instrument.
Twin Custom Burstbucker Alnico II humbuckers deliver scorching rock tones
If you want Slash’s distinctive sustain, crunch, and midrange, it all starts with the pickups. The Gibson Slash Les Paul Standard’s zebra-colored Custom Burstbucker Alnico II humbuckers mimic the tone of his renowned AFD Derrig Les Paul, showcasing a warm, moderate output that’s ideal for anything from classic rock to blues to jazz.
These pickups have the perfect amount of enhanced output to make your guitar sing. Hand-wired electronics with Orange Drop capacitors offer accurate vintage tone on the Gibson Slash Les Paul Standard.
