Gibson has debuted its latest Custom Shop guitar, the Slash 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck.

Based on the 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck that the Guns N' Roses guitarist purchased from a small music store in Indiana in 1990, the doubleneck is built from one-piece solid lightweight mahogany, and features a ’66 medium C-shape neck with an Indian rosewood fretboard.

Sound-wise, the guitar features custombucker Alnico III humbuckers, while looks-wise, the doubleneck sports a worn nitrocellulose lacquer-finished body.

Only 125 examples of the guitar - each of which is hand-signed and numbered by Slash - will be produced. It also comes with a vintage replica hardshell case, a custom Slash concho guitar strap and a Certificate of Authenticity.

Gibson has not listed the price of the Slash 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck on its website -which also says that the guitar is currently unavailable online - but online retailer The Music Zoo quoted its list price at an eyebrow-raising $18,821, with an actual price of about $13,299.
