Nashville, TN
(March 12, 2010) -- It's a big year for Slash gear, with new Seymour Duncan pickups released and a Marshall amp on the way. Now, Gibson has officially released the Appetite for Destruction Les Paul, designed after the guitar Slash played on the album.

The neck is one-piece Grade A quarter-sawn mahogany with Slash's preferred slim ’60s profile,  12" fingerboard radius and 22 jumbo frets. The guitar is equipped with two Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro Slash humbuckers.

The guitar comes with a hardshell case with silkscreen Slash graphic. MSRP $4728.
