A new collection of Slash signature Epiphone guitars was released Tuesday, featuring multiple acoustic and electric models, as part of a partnership between Epiphone and the Gibson company.
The Epiphone Slash Collection features guitars inspired by Gibson models that the Guns N' Roses legend has played throughout his career. The electric models are the Epiphone Slash Les Paul Standard finished in Appetite Burst, November Burst, Anaconda Burst and Vermillion Burst, and the Slash "Victoria" Les Paul Standard Goldtop, which is gold. The collection's acoustic model is called the Epiphone Slash J-45, which is available in Vermillion Burst and November Burst finish.
All of the guitars in Epiphone Slash Collection feature Slash's "Skully" signature drawing on the back of the headstock, the guitarist's signature on the truss rod cover, and a hardshell case that also includes the "Skully" logo.
Speaking about his signature collection in a new Epiphone promo video, Slash notes, "It's a huge honor to be able to have a guitar that's got your name on it…representing you…These are really well put together, all the best materials, all the best components. Everything I could want in an electric guitar is all in this. And so for…a reasonable amount of money, you can get a really great guitar that will last your whole career."
All of the new Slash Epiphone models are available at a list price of $899. For more information about the instruments, visit Epiphone.com.
The Epiphone models were inspired by the pricier guitars released last year as part of the Gibson Slash Collection.
