The Slash Rosso Corsa Les Paul is the perfect fusion of classic specs and Slash-approved features. This killer guitar is capable of serving up a wide range of hard rocking tones that are matched by the lustrous racing red finish.

Slash is best known for his immaculate guitar work and notable riffs in Guns N' Roses, and later started rocking out in a number of side and solo projects including super groups Snakepit and Velvet Revolver. This hard rock legend has a sound that's unmistakably his own, and thanks to Gibson in collaboration with Slash, you too can deliver those screaming leads with the renowned tone of Slash's Signature Rosso Corsa Les Paul.

The body of the Slash Rosso Corsa Les Paul is crafted from the finest Mahogany and Maple, holding true to the classic tonewood combination that made the Les Paul Standard the legend that it is today.  The solid top of the Slash Rosso Corsa Les Paul is bound in vintage cream, and carved from Grade-AAA figured Maple, which not only contributes to this guitar's incredible articulation and attack, but caters to its top shelf aesthetics. The select Mahogany back of the Slash Rosso Corsa Les Paul has been treated with Gibson's traditional weight relief, resulting in enhanced resonance and a slightly lighter guitar to maximize player comfort. Tonally, the Mahogany back will add outstanding depth and warmth to your sound. The body is cloaked in a deep, transparent Rosso Corsa or “racing red” finish in hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer, letting the beautifully figured flame of the Maple top to seep through the finish, while still allowing the wood to breath, further enhancing this guitars rich, deep, resonant tone.

The glued-in neck of the Slash Rosso Corsa Les Paul is crafted from solid, quarter-sawn Mahogany and is then carved into a comfortable, fast '60s SlimTaper profile – the neck profile that legend himself prefers. The neck houses a 22 fret, Grade-A Rosewood fingerboard with vintage cream binding and traditional trapezoid inlays. The slightly thinner neck profile is the perfect shape and size for even the highest velocity soloing, and the medium jumbo frets will facilitate smooth and effortless string bending anywhere on the neck.

The Slash Rosso Corsa Les Paul comes equipped with dual Seymour Duncan Slash Signature humbuckers in the bridge and neck positions. Slash was always very meticulous when it came to the tone of his pickups, so he joined forces with Seymour Duncan to create a pickup that meets his exact demands. The vintage looks of these pickups were influenced by late '50s Gibson PAF humbuckers and feature genuine Alnico II magnets. To obtain a throatier, richer tone in the neck position and an abundance of crunch in the bridge, these pickups are wound a few more times then your typical pickup. Each pickup is wired to independent volume and tone knobs (“orange drop” tone capacitors on the tone pots) for quick and easy tonal tweaking, and the three-way selector switch will allow you to blend the tone of both pickups, or switch between the neck and the bridge pickup on the fly.

The Slash Rosso Corsa Les Paul boasts all chrome hardware including a high-quality Tonepros Tune-O-Matic bridge and lightweight stopbar tailpiece, providing this guitar with incredible tuning stability, precise intonation and solid sustainability. The headstock features a set of vintage-style tuning machines to preserve the classic looks and commemorative Slash graphic of his top hat with skull and crossbones to give it more of a Slash touch.

This Slash signature includes a durable, plush-lined Gibson USA hardshell case with silkscreened Slash artwork on top of the black exterior.
