On the list of iconic Gibson players, there are not many that will rank higher than Slash. With his leather trousers, top hat and a low slung Les Paul, Slash inspired a whole generation of guitar players. Such was his impact that it came as no surprise when Gibson announced him as their first ever Global Ambassador, their latest project? The Gibson Slash 1966 EDS-1275 Double neck.
Double neck guitars are an almost mythical concept, only the greatest and bravest can truly harness the power of one, and Slash is one of those players. Picked up from a small Indiana guitar store in 1990, it quickly became a part of his rotation.
With the classic solid lightweight Mahogany body, finished in a beautiful Aged Ebony, this guitar really does deliver all the authentic Gibson magic you would expect. The ageing is meticulous and has a real 60s vibe.
The necks are topped with lush Rosewood fingerboards, complete with split parallelogram inlays this is a true vintage inspired masterpiece. With the 12 string on top you can add lush textures to your choruses before ripping a solo on the standard 6 string below. Its really nicely balanced and ergonomic.
Each guitar is loaded with a duo of Gibson 68 Custom humbuckers, offering bite and a super responsive, well-rounded tone. Perfect for players looking for the authentic Gibson PAF tone, these pickups offer clarity, definition and punch. Everything you would want from a guitar this enigmatic.
Only 11 of these beauties are coming to the UK with only 125 available worldwide. Each one is hand signed by Slash himself and comes housed in a vintage replica hardcase with a custom Slash concho guitar strap and COA.
