Gibson and Slash have announced the release of the first-ever Slash Collection, which will feature multiple acoustic and electric guitars. The collection will officially premiere at the Gibson experience space during Winter NAMM 2020 in Anaheim, California from January 15th through the 19th.
Slash and Gibson's luthiers worked in close collaboration on the collection at Gibson's headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee. The line features four Les Paul Standard electric guitars and two J-45 Standard acoustic guitars.
Slash told us a while back about meeting late guitar legend Les Paul, who was his personal hero: ["Really the most memorable thing was when he and I first met, and he really had no clue who I was, and we were sort of thrown onstage together. And so he sort of, you know, basically wiped the stage floor up with me that particular night, and so jamming with Les for the rest of my career was sort of like a barometer of how good I was getting on guitar from that point on."] SOUNDCUE (:23 OC: . . . that point on.)
Slash will hit the road and bring the Gibson Slash Collection with him this summer as he rejoins his Guns N' Roses bandmates for the next leg of their "Not In This Lifetime" tour.
