Limited Edition Slash Anaconda Guitar

According to Guitar World “Epiphone has revealed two new guitars, the Limited Edition Slash Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO Premium Outfit and the Ltd. Ed. Slash Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO.

The Premium Outfit will be limited to only 100 guitars, each hand signed and numbered on the back of the headstock by Slash. It will also include a custom hard shell case with a custom leather strap and a certificate of authenticity.

The Ltd. Ed. Slash Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO will be limited to 900 guitars, and has the same specs as the Premium Outfit. Both were designed by Slash with Epiphone’s luthiers in Nashville.

The models are made with a mahogany weight-relief Les Paul body with an AAA flame maple veneer top, Anaconda Burst finish, an ebony fingerboard, Seymour Duncan “Slash” Humbuckers designed by Slash, Sprague “Orange Drop” capacitors and a certificate of authenticity.

“The guitar player that you are when you first start out is really a magical time,” Slash said in a press release. “Technically, you don’t know that much but you play with all your heart and magic moments come from that. Doing a guitar that’s affordable with a great company like Epiphone is something I think should happen more often.”

The estimated street price of the Premium Outfit is $1,199, while the estimated street price of the Standard Plustop PRO is $899.”

Izzy Stradlin and Matt Sorum Go to the Movies!

Former Guns N’ Roses Drummer and Rhythm Guitarist Matt Sorum and Izzy Stradlin were spotted at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. The Festival runs from January 2 to January 15, 2018. This photo was taken within the last week. I was actually in Palm Springs this time last year and my Inlaws went to the film festival. I am kicking myself for not going to Palm Springs this year again.

For those who don’t know Izzy Stradlin lives in Ojai California which is about 200 miles from Palm Springs. It’s not the first time Sorum and Stradlin have been spotted together. Both musicians worked together on Izzy’s 2016 track Fighter Pilot (F.P) Money! You can check it out below!
