I got this 2020 Standard Slash in a trade before the holidays. A really nice high-quality guitar. A 50’s neck which I prefer, a cool color, hand wired, one piece back, and just a super nice guitar. In my opinion, almost a Custom Shop guitar (I’ve owned 7 CS Gibson’s)

My only only issues with the guitar were, the bare uncovered pickups and the lack of an installed pick-guard. Still, I really hesitated to mod the guitar, because I didn’t want to devalue the guitar with mods.

So much for the hesitation. Added chrome pickup covers, a pick-guard, and a Historic truss rod cover. I have a 5-ply black Gibson Les Paul Custom pick-guard on order. The 5-ply pick-guard will make the guitar standout even more.

I’ll get some new photos in better lighting once my 5-ply pick-guard arrives.

Great color...the mods look good and the 5 ply guard will look even better. Congrats!

Did the same to mine, though I'm back to the original pickups- I may cover them at some point because I cannot find anything I like better for this guitar (which is very unusual for me)

Here's mine with some rewind T tops

A great looking guitar, maybe add some ‘57’s on mine down the road.

Badass….and in slash tradition as he used to mod his guitars by immediately removing the guard and pup covers…

I am a cover on and guard guy so I wouldve done exactly what u did

love the top btw…badass color too :h5:

i especially loved slash’s black beauty custom used mostly in the studio…estranged video he brought it out…guard removed and gold pup covers gone too
go to 6:13 to see his bb custom
