Slash & Burn: A new Attitude axe from Gibson

At Winter NAMM 2010, Gibson gave attendees a sneak peak at the Slash 2010 “Appetite” Les Paul, modeled after the one the Guns 'n' Roses guitarist played on the band's "Appetite for Destruction" album. If you remember, this was the album that really launched the band from nobody to somebody and contained hit tracks like Welcome to The Jungle, Sweet Child O' Mine, Mr. Brownstone, It's So Easy, Nightrain, Out Ta Get Me, Paradise City, My Michelle, Think About You, You're Crazy, Anything Goes, and Rocket Queen.


* Traditional style weight-relief Mahogany body with AAA Figured Maple top
* Unique neck profile made for Slash features rounded 60’s shape
* Rosewood fingerboard with trapezoid inlays
* Un-burst top with faded cherry back lacquer finish
* Slash signature smoking skull with top hat artwork for peghead face
* New Seymour Duncan Slash Signature Alnico II pickups
* Special capacitors selected by Slash for vintage tone
* Tone Pro hardware with historic machine heads, locking bridge and tailpiece
