Slash Reveals New Guitar Model!
It looks like Gibson and Slash will be teaming up for another Slash model guitar. Check out the posts below showcasing the new guitar that comes out October 3, 2018 for a whopping $13,000.00. You can check out the video of Slash discussing the guitar below as well! A week ago it was announced that Slash would be releasing a Slash themed firebird.
Slash and Gibson Guitars have announced their newest collaboration, the Slash Signed 1958 Les Paul Standard “Brazilian Dream.” The Limited edition instrument is based on the guitarist’s favorite historic specifications and appointments, with an added feature—a genuine solid Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard.
The inclusion of this highly coveted species of rosewood, which has not been widely available for over 50 years, helps to make the Brazilian Dream both an accurate replica of a golden-era Les Paul and a timeless collectible.
Each Brazilian Dream is hand-signed and -numbered by Slash, and includes an exclusive green-lined Lifton lacquered case and a variety of Slash collateral items. The run of guitars is limited to just 150 instruments.
Explains Slash in the accompanying video: “I’ve been working with Gibson for a lot of years now and I’ve started to really sort of focus on Tobacco Sunburst ‘58s.” He continues, “Different necks actually do sound different. The surface of the neck, what the wood is can really affect the way guitar sounds. The reason why Brazilian Rosewood was so popular is it just has a certain sound to it that’s really nice. It’s something you don’t get that easily. I can tell you that much.
“The addition of the Brazilian Rosewood just takes it over the top. It’s a really amazing sounding guitar.”
Specs for the Slash Signed 1958 Les Paul Standard “Brazilian Dream” are below. For more information on the guitar, which has a list price of $12,999.00, go to Gibson.com.
Slash’s New Single ‘Driving Rain’ Climbs Up Billboard Charts!
Slash’s new single ‘Driving Rain’ from his latest album ‘Living the Dream’ has moved up another two spots on the billboard charts this week. Last week it was at number 9 and for several weeks before that it was stuck at number 12. The song was probably helped by the fact that ‘Living the Dream’ released last week. To date, ‘Driving Rain’ is the fastest and highest charting single in Slash’s solo career! We’ll keep tracking the song in the coming weeks!
As Slash told Blabbermouth, they began writing material during the World on Fire tour with Slash bringing new riffs and musical ideas to the band during soundchecks, at which point the Conspirators would expand on them, with vocalist Kennedy singing ideas into his phone. The original plan was to get back to work on the new album after taking time off following the 18-month jaunt. Then Guns N’ Roses came calling back, and that occupied his time for the next two-and-a-half years.
