Gibson Releases Slash Signature Vermillion Les Paul
Nashville, TN (October 8, 2013) -- With his monster riffs, unquestioned talent, and pure-rock attitude, Slash emerged in 1987 with Guns N’ Roses to almost single-handedly stave off the mainstream electronica that was overtaking the airwaves. From GNR to tearing it up big time with Snakepit, Velvet Revolver, and numerous solo and side projects, Slash has become not only a modern guitar legend, but synonymous with the Gibson Les Paul—and this new rendition of his Signature guitar might just be the most stunning version yet.
The Slash Signature Vermillion Les Paul blends timeless specs with Slash-approved features and details, all dressed in a luscious new finish from Gibson USA: Vermillion. This rich, deep-red transparent finish in hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer perfectly exhibits the guitar’s Grade-AAA flamed maple top, while letting the tonewood breathe to enhance an equally rich, deep, resonant tone.
Commemorative details include a Slash graphic on the headstock, echoed in a silkscreen on the included black Gibson USA hardshell case. Add a pair of Seymour Duncan Slash Signature humbucking pickups, a TonePros Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, and top it all off with unparalleled Gibson build quality, and the Slash Signature Vermillion Les Paul wails with a commanding tone that is fully equal to its breathtaking visual beauty. See, play, and most of all, enjoy this unique guitar now at your authorized Gibson USA dealer.
