In related news, Guitar Center (www.guitarcenter.com), the world’s largest musical instrument retailer, along with Gibson Custom Shop guitars, today announced the new Gibson Custom “Appetite” Les Paul Guitar, a limited-edition guitar made to honor Slash, and the same model that he used to record his recent chart-topping solo album SLASH. Guitar Center will carry both the hand-aged and signed model along with the VOS (Vintage Original Spec) version.
The Custom Shop Slash “Appetite” Les Paul is crafted in the image of an original 1958-’60 Les Paul Standard, and available in strictly limited numbers. The guitar was crafted to honor Slash and his devotion to the Les Paul Standard guitar since 1987 with the debut of Guns N’ Roses’ album, Appetite for Destruction. All Custom Shop Slash “Appetite” Les Pauls come with a lined hardshell case, a Certificate of Authenticity, an Owner’s Manual and adjustment literature, and a rare bonus of a deluxe vinyl LP edition of Guns N’ Roses’ Appetite for Destruction. The VOS model went on sale Friday, May 7th at 1pm EST, while the hand-aged and signed model will go on sale Friday, May 14th at 1pm EST.
“This guitar plays and sounds very unique,” said Slash. “It is a beautiful piece of work.”
Slash, as well as representatives from Guitar Center, announced the guitar’s debut at Guitar Center Hollywood.
