One for the Slash or Velvet Revolver fanatic… Epiphone today announced the release of their new Slash Signature Les Paul Standard Plus Top––basically a lower-cost, and of course fully-sanctioned remake of Gibson’s Custom Shop Slash Signature LP.
While not quite as staggeringly good looking as its much more expensive Gibson counterpart, the Epiphone Slash LP still looks to be a handsome instrument with a number of nice “signature” touches.
Built on a mahogany body, the Slash Les Paul sports a flamed maple top decked out in Tobacco Sunburst finish, a gloss-finished mahogany neck with Signature Slash-Profile, glued set-neck construction, and long neck tendon.
Other features will include a 12“ radius rosewood fretboard, 22 Medium Jumbo frets, a pair of real Seymour Duncan Alnico Pro-II Humbuckers, dual volume and tone controls, 3-way pickup switching, and a LockTone tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece.
No word yet on pricing, but the guitar is due at dealers on December 14th, so you know it’s going to be priced to sell.
