Ehh... I would be more interested in understanding what's going on with the pick ups? Why aren't the regular seymour duncan slash set in?Tin foil hat time. Did Gibson pay Slash to use these new finishes with black plastics in advance so they could release a new Slash line that wasn’t some orange burst or gold top?
You make it seem like he hasn't bought any new guitars since the early 90s. They are actually based on guitars he used. Just more recently.I mean, if you're going to make a production model why not base it on the production models he actually used? And in the process of doing so cut costs?
