Slash Reveals What He Didn’t Like About Old Gibson Guitars

Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash recently appeared at this year’s NAMM and talked to  Guitar Magazine.

“It’s an interesting thing – before I even got a new ‘Cesar era’ Les Paul, I noticed a different vibe just in seeing the print ads. There was something about the vibe that was exciting.

“And then the first guitars that I saw, Cesar [Gueikian, Gibson CMO] brought me over one of all the different models that they were going to be coming out with, and they just all felt crisp and tight and put together.

“One of the problems I had with some of the USA guitars a while back was I felt like there wasn’t as much focus on the way that they were set up.

“Not because the USA guys were putting them together wrong but I think it was just a general disillusionment that it developed over time, and you could tell that maybe they were not as enthusiastic about it as they are now.

“This is one of the iconic things in pop culture, you know? It’s like Fender doesn’t need to play around with the Strats! If you want to have one line that’s totally out of the ordinary, it’s great, but to take the whole company and sort of set it in this direction…

“There was a time when if you went into a guitar store and you wanted to buy a new Les Paul, you had to have the robo-tuners. And that was not really what people wanted – it’s sort of like Apple when they stuck that [U2] record [2014’s ‘Songs of Innocence’] in your phone! That’s not how the guitar is supposed to work!”

He was asked if he’d like to see more guitars added to his Gibson line adding

“Well, I shouldn’t speak out of turn, but I would like to do an Epiphone line. And what we’re discussing now is doing another Goldtop, instead of it being a Custom Shop model. I love Goldtops, so I would love to have that.”
