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?
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? :hmm:

They all look great.... but do the people with the money to buy such guitars really still hold a guy like Slash in such reverence?

To be fair his pickups are extremely basic A2 PAF style so I am all for not giving SD money for them. They are so over priced. I am not an SD fan obviously......

The November burst is by far the biggest fail.

Slash is OK as a guitarist. The Slash collection is... OK if you like that sort of thing.

Not enough gold tops and pickup covers for me.

Nice, idea, stupid choice of guitars.

If they want to make some production Slash sigs, go for it. But the best route would have been a Standard with a three-piece top and Duncans, available in two finishes:




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?

I think these guitars are pretty good looking -- but if you bought a limited edition Anaconda burst a couple years ago and now they are turning that same finish into a production guitar, that's kind of a double-cross.

Also, am I reading right that the acoustic guitars are MORE expensive than the Les Pauls?

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.

What are people's thoughts about the appetite burst? I've been tempted to buy the original one, would people rather but that and have a 10 year old guitar or get this one? I'm for sure going to get the red one as well.

Nice looking guitars, and I love listening to Slash play with anybody. Having said that, I’ve never felt the need to own a signature guitar other than Les’s.

Is it me,or does the rosewood on a couple of those models look like the ruts on an unpaved rural road?

Baked maple or ebony, might be a better choice,visually and tonally.jmho.

Aside from that, waiting for the for sale posting: entire Slash Collection for sale,will not split up. :hmm:

I am a slash admirer from way back...AFD and UYI.

I am very happy that I am not a collector of Slash guitars.
Am sure those who are, are selling a kidney and/or remortgaging their house to get all these new ones.

If you would have told me at 13 years old that I could buy a Slash guitar I would have been overjoyed. Now I’m 40 and can afford one and I wouldn’t spend the money on any one of the 30 or so that have been released.
