Gibson recently unveiled a small line of Gibson Custom Slash Anaconda Burst Les Pauls, the first of the Gibson/Slash collaborations the company hinted at upon announcing his appointment as its Global Brand Ambassador.

Each of the guitars—which Slash has been showing off in prototype form throughout his performances with Guns N' Roses in 2016 and 2017—features an exclusive green Anaconda Burst finish, historic 1950s Les Paul construction and Slash's personal touches, including a custom Slash neck profile, Slash Signature humbuckers and Sprague Orange Drop capacitors.

Both the Flame Top and Plain Top models are available (25 each) signed by Slash but a greater quantity (250) of unsigned Plain Tops will be available as well.
