The Gibson Custom Slash "Appetite for Destruction" Les Paul is a guitar based on an original 1958-’60 Les Paul Standard and built to the specifications of Slash himself. It is available in limited numbers, with 100 guitars hand-aged and signed by Slash himself. The maple top comes with a nitrocellulose Butterscotch finish to give it a classic look, and the Grade A mahogany neck is cut in a slim 1960's style profile making it easy to work with. The Rosewood fingerboard is cut in a 12 inch radius, and features mother-of-pearl trapezoid inlays. Medium sized frets are used to help bending notes over the pickups. Slash specifically requested Seymour Duncan Signature Series Alnico II Pro humbucking pickups to add extra punch to the sound. The knobs are amber top-hat shaped, and the bridge is a Tune-o-matic in an aged-nickel finish. This guitar comes with a deluxe LP of the Guns N' Roses album "Appetite for Destruction".
