Limited-edition Slash Anaconda Burst Les Paul
If Gibson's Custom Slash Anaconda Burst Les Paul is a bit out of your price range, you're in luck. This limited-edition Les Paul features the same exclusive green finish as the Custom version, along with a gorgeous AA figured maple top and a plethora of Slash's personal touches, including a custom neck taper, signature Seymour Duncan pickups, and Sprague Orange Drop capacitors. This unforgettable guitar belongs in your collection, but don't delay — the Slash Anaconda Burst Les Paul is limited to 50 individually signed and numbered guitars.
Classic construction with Slash’s personal touches
Gibson based the Slash Anaconda Burst on classic Les Paul designs, including a non-weight-relieved mahogany body, a AA figured maple top, and a nitrocellulose lacquer finish, along with Slash's requested modifications. The electronics consist of a handwired harness with Sprague Orange Drop capacitors, 500K CTS volume and tone pots, and a Switchcraft toggle switch. Guitarists here at Guitar World are genuine Les Paul connoisseurs, and they love the sound, look, and feel of this guitar.
Twin Seymour Duncan humbuckers deliver scorching rock tones
If you covet the sustain, crunch, and midrange that are Slash's trademark, it all starts with the pickups. The signature Seymour Duncan humbuckers in the Slash Anaconda Burst Les Paul exhibit a warm, moderate output that's perfect for everything from classic rock to blues to jazz. These pickups are wound with just the right amount of boosted output to make your guitar sing. And like the originals in Slash's legendary AFD Derrig Les Paul, these Alnico II Pro pickups feature a nickel silver bottom plate with long mounting legs, single-conductor braided lead wire, maple spacer, paper tape, and wax potting.
Slash — a brief biography
Known primarily for his work with the hard rock band Guns N' Roses during the late 1980s, Slash has garnered a well-earned reputation as one of rock's preeminent guitarists. Named the runner-up on Time magazine's list of "The 10 Best Electric Guitar Players" in 2009, and No. 65 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of "The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" in 2011, Slash continues to receive accolades from critics and music fans alike. Aside from his enormous success with Guns N' Roses, Slash has also achieved acclaim with his side project, Slash's Snakepit, and as a member of the supergroup Velvet Revolver. He's recorded three solo albums, two with his band, Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. In 2012, Slash received one of rock music's highest honors, when he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside his Guns N' Roses bandmates.
