GP recently met up with Slash at the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville to discuss the iconic guitarist’s new limited edition model, the Slash 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck.
The signed and aged guitar is based on the original 1966 EDS-1275 that Slash purchased from an Indiana music store in 1990, and that went on to see heavy use on Guns N’ Roses' Use Your Illusion tour for “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” and other tunes.
“It has an amazing vintage sound. It sounds better than a lot of my six strings,” Slash says in the accompanying exclusive interview with Guitar Player.
The Slash 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck is being produced in a very limited run of just 125 models, with each hand-signed and numbered by Slash and accompanied by a vintage replica hardshell case, custom Slash concho guitar strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
Slash's new live album and DVD, Living the Dream Tour, is out this Friday, September 20 via Eagle Rock. You can preorder it here.
