Slash Signature Les Paul
"I had always thought Les Pauls were just cool-looking. I was automatically drawn to that style, and all my favorite guitar players played Les Pauls." (Slash)

Slash has collaborated with Gibson on twelve signature Les Paul models: three through Gibson USA, five through the Gibson Custom Shop and four through the Gibson subsidiary Epiphone.

Slash Les Paul Custom Shop 1990
"I used real oddball stuff, like transitional numbers and X's, and one of the serial numbers is Slash's birthday." (J.T. Riboloff)

Gibson Slash Signature Les Paul Custom Shop 1990
Model: Gibson Slash Signature Les Paul Custom Shop 1990
Manufacturing: Gibson Custom Shop
Pickups: Seymour Duncan Alnico 2 Pro
Production: 4 units
Notes: This is the very first Gibson Les Paul made only for Slash, no production release. Slash ordered these four guitars after attending a NAMM show and seeing a slim-necked '59 replica made by J.T. Riboloff of the Gibson Custom Shop. The all-black hardware and screaming yellow binding were his ideas. Other personalized features include Dunlop 6100 jumbo frets and a "stripped" look with no pickup covers or pickguard. Of the four Les Pauls Riboloff made for Slash, three are still in his possession. The fourth, the one being auctioned, he traded for another guitar in the Gibson vault.

Slash Les Paul Snakepit 1996
"I had Gibson make this for me in 1996 or 1997. It's got the embossed Slash logo on it and the snake inlay in the neck. It's a gorgeous guitar. I only have one of those and they are very rare." (Slash)

Gibson Slash Signature Les Paul Snakepit 1996
Model: Gibson Slash Signature Les Paul Snakepit 1996
Manufacturing: Gibson Custom Shop
Pickups: Seymour Duncan Alnico 2 Pro
Production: 100 units
Notes: Slash received the first four including the prototype, the only one with the carving on the body turned 90 degrees to be viewed right side up when displayed on a guitar stand. In 1998 Slash's studio was broken into and his guitars were stolen, including the Snakepit prototype, so the Gibson Custom Shop built him a replica. The first 50 have a certificate that says "limited 50 pieces", but the production was increased to 100 pieces. These guitars are by far the rarest and most collectible of any of the Slash Signature Les Pauls.

"That was the main guitar I used when I toured with Velvet Revolver. Fucking killer sounding guitar, that one. It actually screams." (Slash)

Slash Les Paul Standard VOS 2008
"This is the replica of the original 1988 Les Paul I had before I beat the hell out of it. It's sort of a trip for me to see it because it looks actually like the guitar after I had it refinished in 1988." (Slash)
