    I love Gibson and Slash, but an R8 in washed cherry with his signature is not worth $12-$15 grand IMO. Everyone knows you can send an R8 to HM and have them simply age and refinish for half the price.

    The original one is rather plain, isn’t it?

    Wildwood just got a bunch of the green burst in. I am not the least impressed. The green top with dark red back? :wtf: Not in my guitar rack...

    These pictures are very dark for the finish. I guess they look a bit better under brighter light. The back is definitely brown though.

    If I were rich enough to be retired I would buy one of the Anaconda ones. To me is the most beautiful Slash model they have made.

    But I can´t spend 5K on a guitar. It´s just a luxury item.

    Call me stupid but I actually like this color. :thumb: :applause:

    Someone said the Backs don't match the Green, I think the Backs look fine.

    Lastly, from memory in the Backstage, someone mentioned now that Slash is a HJ / Gibson Ambassador he won't be associated with Seymour Duncan.........which is obviously incorrect, as this run of Artist Guitars has a Slash SD Set.

    I am also digging the Plaintop which is a nice change of pace. :)

    The best part about it is the back and the case.

    The top looks like shit.

    The only thing this brings new to other custom shop and previous signatures is the color. There's 25 of each and most signed are already sold... crazy business!
