Epiphone has announced the release of the Slash Les Paul Classic Goldtop Outfit. The package will be hand-signed by Slash himself and strictly limited to 2,000 guitars worldwide.
The latest in a series of Gibson and Epiphone Slash signature instruments, like the Slash Les Paul Standard Plus Top, the Goldtop features a long neck tenon, a LockTone bridge and tailpiece, Seymour Duncan Alnico Pro II pickups and the 'Slash Custom' neck profile.
In addition, the limited edition package includes a hard case with a custom Slash logo, a hand-numbered certificate of authenticity signed by Slash and a limited edition HD laser-cell print of the former Guns N' Roses star.
"My new Epiphone signature model is a great playing, sounding and looking guitar. For the money it's one of the best guitars you can buy."
The certificate and the laser-cell come in a leatherette presentation binder with the Slash logo embossed in gold on the cover. Also included are a custom Slash-inspired leather strap and 24 Slash picks.
As if you needed convincing any further, the Velvet Revolver guitarist comments: "My new Epiphone signature model is a great playing, sounding and looking guitar. For the money it's one of the best guitars you can buy."
The Epiphone Slash Les Paul Classic Goldtop Outfit is released worldwide on 1 October, with street prices expected to be around £700 in the UK and $999 in the US.
