Gibson Unveils Slash Signature Rosso Corsa Les Paul

Slash and Gibson team up for a special version of his signature Les Paul.

Nashville, TN (August 8, 2013) -- Gibson recently announced the release of the Slash Signature Rosso Corsa Les Paul. Here are the details from their website:

After saving big rock riffs from the electronic mainstream with Guns N’ Roses, and tearing it up big time with Snakepit, Velvet Revolver, and numerous solo and side projects, Slash truly needs no introduction. His new Gibson Les Paul, though, is something you do want to hear about.

The Slash Signature Rosso Corsa Les Paul blends timeless specs with Slash-approved features and fine points all dressed in a brand new finish from Gibson USA: Rosso Corsa—or “racing red.” This luscious, deep-reed transparent finish in hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer beautifully shows off the guitar’s Grade-AAA flamed maple top, while letting the tonewood breath to enhance a rich, deep, resonant tone. Commemorative details include a distinctive 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 Rosso Corsa Les Paul sounds every bit as killer as it looks.

MSRP $4,998
