Gibson Les Paul Slash Appetite 2021 – Amberburst

$ 3063.99

Hi all,

I got this amazing beauty on a trade, and it is just not my cup of tea. Aside from the mods done by the original owner (Seymour Duncan Slash Alnico II pups (mk 1) & bone nut); it is 100% stock and has maybe six total hours of playing time between us. The previous owner bought it as a showpiece and only modded it to more “authentic”. Original pups are included as well. I would list this as mint, but the mods dictate otherwise.

From Gibson:

Gibson and Slash are proud to present the Slash Collection Gibson Les Paul Standard. It represents influential Gibson guitars Slash has used during his career, inspiring multiple generations of players around the world. The Slash Collection of Gibson guitars can be seen live on stage with Slash today.

Exclusive to the Slash Collection are Slash’s “Skully” signature drawing on the back of the headstock, Slash’s signature on the truss rod cover, a blank truss rod cover in the case, Slash’s new Ernie Ball strings, and four Slash Jim Dunlop Tortex® picks. The Slash Les Paul Standard is available in November Burst and Appetite Burst.

ABR-1 Tune-o-matic Bridge

The standard for simplicity & functionality

The ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge was the brainchild of legendary Gibson president Ted McCarty in 1954, setting a standard for simplicity and functionality that has never been bettered. The ABR-1 is slotted directly into the body of the guitar using a separate stud and thumbwheel, providing a firm seating for the strings and allowing players the ability to adjust and fine tune intonation and string height in a matter of minutes. It also yields a great union between the strings and body, which results in excellent vintage tone and sustain.

Core Mark Tremonti (Hardtail or trem)

S2 SC 594 plus cash

LP Modern in either Pelham Blue or the new transparent flame green

LP Studio Modern cash
