Slash Appetite For Destrubtion Epiphone Les Paul Signature

Each Limited Edition Slash ‘Appetite’ package will come with a hardshell case featuring Slash’s artwork, a certificate of authenticity personally hand signed by the guitarist himself and 12 custom Slash guitar picks. “You don’t get picks with the other models,” Slash says, chuckling. The Epiphone Appetite will be in shops in October.

Slash played a prototype of the Epiphone model on tour recently in Europe, plugging it into his live rig right alongside his Gibson Custom Shop and USA models. “And there was no difference in the sound,” he marvels. “Nobody could tell I was playing a different guitar. It sounded incredible.”
