Attention Slash fans - save up for the new model.....
Love it. The idea of it more than the guitar though...
I like it. Might buy one if it plays as good as it looks
Where would I get my hands on one of these?
IIRC the ad was from Sam Ash in the US
Well thats really a bargain .... getting a Slash signature for $1200.
The plaintop Gibson model costs $5000 and $6500 with signature - so the signature here costs $1500
the epi version without the signature is $900 - so the signature with the Epi pencil is $300
and with the Gibbo pencil it's x5
For $1200 that Epiphone better play itself.
It doesn't even look that good. They went with a green burst, but they chose cream pickup rings, a cream 'chip and amber speed knobs?
The price is insulting, but Slash signatures have always been overpriced.
There has been quite a few Asian (not counting Japanese) guitars that retail for over $1K lately.
It would look significantly better with black plastics and chrome hardware. That said, I don't like green that much anyway so I won't buy it. It's cool that there's an offering for Slash fans that doesn't cost as much as a car though.
I found this on a German website selling it for €899.

I do like the look of the guitar, but the thick neck makes it a no go for me. I only like the Slim Taper Neck Les Paul's.
For $1200 you can buy a Trib+ with case, sell the '57s in it and add the Seymores and still have enough pocket change to buy a decent little amp. Seems a bit on the spendy side for a Epi to me
