    Epiphone

    A limited-run signature model based on the guitar Slash played on the classic Guns N' Roses album.

    The Epiphone Slash Appetite Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar is patterned after the guitar Slash played on the famous Guns N' Roses Appetite For Destruction album and remains his main recording guitar. The Slash signature guitar is crafted with a mahogany body topped with a carved maple cap with flamed maple veneer with an Appetite Amber finish.

    The signature guitar's neck profile was made for Slash and offers a rounded 60's Les Paul shape. The "Appetite" LP guitar is armed with Seymour Duncan Slash Signature Alnico II Pro pickups with zebra coils. Slash also selected the special Orange Drop capacitors to create the vintage Les Paul sound he so loves. The LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece add more sustain and make string changing easier.

    Here's what Slash told us when we asked him about the Epiphone Slash "Appetite For Destruction" Les Paul:
    "I always wanted to do an Epiphone [version] as well because Epiphone makes great quality instruments and they're more affordable. It's really phenomenal. You look at the specs, and all of the hardware is basically the same. It gives someone a chance to be able to pick up something decent at a more reasonable price. lt's actually sort of like a steal."

    Act fast, because this guitar is only available in a limited-run.

    I recently picked this guitar up because I sold off some gear and had some money to play with. I have owned many Epi's in the past, including the newer Tribute version. The Tribute is an excellent guitar for the money, but I do like this guitar better. The top on this guitar is the nicest I have seen on any non-Elitist Epiphone. The Seymour Duncan pickups are excellent, not too over-wound which lets your amp do what it's designed to do. Neck profile is very comfortable for me. I really love the vintage look you get from the old style bell knobs and Kluson-style tuners. My only complaints were a poor setup out of the box and the fretboard was rather dry and dirty looking. After a nice cleanup and treating of the fretboard, it's as nice as could be. I own several guitars that are very expensive and USA made, including a Gibson Les Paul, and this is as fun to play as any of them. I do think it's association with Slash does not warrant the extra cost over the Tribute nor does it make it collectible. I plan to play mine early and often! Having said all that, this is the best looking and playing Epi I've owned. If you don't mind the extra money, you will not be disappointed.

    Tail stop started to tarnish and discolor the first week, volume and tone knobs poorly made and off center. Input jack came out the first week. Fret board was very dry to the point it needed treatment.Setup was horrible. I do believe this guitar is overpriced. You?re paying at least $300+ for the slash nameand another $100 for the color. I would had been better off just to bought a Epic standard and changed the pickupsfor half the cost of this guitar.It does stay in tune and after a lot of adjustment I am somewhat pleased with the action.I say somewhat because I have the action a little higher then I like to avoid some fret buzz. If you?re buying as a collection item I would be very concerned with the hardware/screws etctarnishing/rusting/ discoloring. I purchased this guitar on the Internet and almost the next day went on Vacation or I would had returned the Guitar. I am not saying there all bad, I think these days its hit and miss with about everything you purchase. But you are paying half the cost for the Slash name and color and if that?s important to you go for it.

    Great Les Paul

    By Julian-j.4f2

    from Las Vegas, NV

    I will first preface this by saying I am not a huge slash fan. I bought this guitar for the features and low price. Many have said that this is the epiphone standard les paul with slash's name on it and that's just not true. This guitar's pickups are way better than any stock les paul, gibson or otherwise. The maple cap is thick and real. Possibly most important is the long neck tenon. This is a rare feature only on high priced gibsons. Compare this to a gibson studio model and you can see that this is a much better guitar. I will say that the setup was terrible when I got it. It took a lot of work to get it intonated. The tuners are not incredible, but they do the job. The is also nothing to dance about. But, the guitar is awesome. Overall, I would definitely recommend this guitar to someone who wants a great les paul for under 1k. There is not a ton of badging so you won't look like a slash impersonator. It sounds great, plays great, looks great and is 100% les paul.

    Great for a Collector

    By Zack-gjJ1G

    from Toledo, OH

    I played one of these at music store out of curiosity. I will say that it is a great instrument and very practical for playing/gigging/ect. But unless your a Slash fan and looking to get his signature guitar simply because it's Slash's, I personally think you may want to consider a LP Standard or Custom. For the player looking just for a nice guitar to play they offer pretty much the same thing for a little cheaper. Awsome instrument but at the same time this guitar is more of a playable collectors item.

    Slash...

    I ordered this for my daughter. Nice guitar. Finish and condition were perfect. Guitar sounds just like Slash's with the pickups that are in it. Great value, and quality for the price.

    Sound like a rock god!!

    I got mine a little over a week ago. I got a (barely) used one. I can't find a thing wrong with it. I had to make a few adjustments to suit my personal preferences.This guitar sounds amazing! I don't have a Marshall (yet) so I have it going to my Ampeg. I can get close enough to the tone that my daughter couldn't single me out when playing along with the album. The neck is super comfortable and I can play it for hours. The guitar is very responsive to volume and tone changes. Unlike my other guitars where the tone is only two settings, this one has range. And even with cranked distortion, I can roll back the volume on the guitar and get a very organic, clean sound. And, as a Slash fan, it is a nice addition to my arsenal.

    Appetite Les Paul

    By Devinhullphoto

    from Norwalk, Ohio

    I went to guitar Center today to play this beast and it did nothing but exceed my expectations. The finish was so pretty and the feel of the neck was just perfect. its a chambered body, which was kinda lame only cause i prefer a non-chambered. But the tone and feel and everything was perfect.If i would have had the money i would have most deff bought it right then. I have been wanting to play it for a while and i was happy that i wasnt let down. Slash has done it again.

    Great Guitar. definitely a steal!!

    By EROCK-.hyfh

    from Tyrone, Pennsylvania

    So I was gonna buy this brand spanking new, however i lost my job a week before i bought it so i opted for a "used" model. It was actually new with a slight blemish on the inside of the gut away where neck meets the body and cannot be noticed unless u hold it in direct light and look from about 4in away. With that said the thing was well set and pretty much in tune out of the box. The case is very nice and worth 200 bucks in its own right. along with the guitar came picks, autographed C-O-A and signed photo as well as a poster Manuel and bumper sticker. There was even a cable included. The finish is truly amazing, not quite book matched but beautiful none the less and certainly unique.Its based on a late 50's Standard and certainly sounds and performs as one. this much better then certain Gibson models I've played. It captures the slash sound well, however does not limit one to such styles, this guitar made most made for metal guitars sound like panzys when ran the the dual rectifier but definitely lived up to its name when plugged into a 77 Marshall Master Volume. Any style would sound great with this guitar. Truly a STEAL!

    Slash

    I've played for 50 years, I guess when I was younger I would have gone for one of these low budget guitars. What kind of amazed me was Slash's review of this guitar he called it a " decent guitar" and that is just exactly what it is a decent guitar. Epiphone once made some really good guitars but today they range from the Fender squire to the mexican quality. You get what you pay for, if you're truly into music look at it in the long run and try to get a truly quality guitar, doesn't matter what brand you like but the quality and construction of the guitar does matter.

    Excellent Value!

    By Southerntwang

    from Atlanta, GA

    I am amazed by the resonance and tone of this Epiphone. I've owned and played many Epi's in the past and this guitar definitely raises the bar. What impresses me most is the natural resonance and sustain of the guitar. The clarity and harmonics for a guitar in this price range are amazing! I'm also impressed with the warmth and clarity of the new Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro Slash pickups. This one has quickly become my #1 go to guitar ahead of much more expensive ones in my collection. Highly recommended!
