The gear of Slash, Duff McKagan, and Richard Fortus finally revealed.
Fortus has a rack full of customized guitars built specifically for him by famed luthier Leo Scala. All Scalas are one-offs and feature Arcane pickups. Fortus’ Scala signature model, the 445, has a 335-style body, but thinner, featuring a solid 1-piece maple top on a 1-piece mahogany body that’s been chambered and vented all the way around. The maple cap is the same thickness as a Les Paul at the bridge.
Special thanks to Slash's tech Adam Day and Duff's tech Mike “Mcbob” Mayhue who have both been with the band since Appetite for Destruction.
