Up for sale, a 2021 Gibson Slash Les Paul Standard in near-mint condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case, hangtags, and case candy. Designed as an amalgamation of several Les Pauls used by the G‘n’R icon during his career, this Slash Les Paul boasts a solid mahogany body capped with a AAA flame maple top, loaded with a bevy of premium features chosen by Slash himself, including Custom Burstbucker Alnico II humbuckers, hand-wired electronics with Sprague Orange Drop caps, and a gloss nitro lacquer November Burst finish.
Weighing 9lbs 1oz, this Les Paul dishes out plenty of natural sustain and midrange warmth, with a lively, round-sounding acoustic presence faithfully captured by the pair of Alnico II Custom Burstbucker pickups. The humbuckers deliver an array of classic Gibson tonalities, with a dynamic and harmonically-rich bridge pickup (metering 8.6k ohms) and a fat, sweet neck pickup that retains ideal clarity (metering 8.3k ohms). Wound slightly hotter than a standard PAF-style Burstbucker, these pickups also take gain notably well for monster distorted tones that remain articulate. This Slash Les Paul Standard has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.
