Raw Power: Slash's Signature Les Paul

It’s all go for Slash: a great new album, a titanic Classic Rock fanpack and a brace of groovy new signature guitars to boot.

Slash is the embodiment of an iconic rock star, and he’s as closely associated with the Gibson Les Paul guitar as he is to his beloved toppers. However, that’s not the six-string he used as he rose to superstardom.

As he describes in the new Classic Rock fanpack, on the lion’s share of GN’R’s game-changing debut album Appetite For Destruction he actually used a copy of a late-1950s Les Paul, built by guitar maker Kris Derrig, and it remains his go-to recording guitar to this day.
