“A fantastic replica of this extraordinary guitar. Same dot neck, Bigsby tremolo, and finish. You have to check it out”: Gibson has announced a signature Slash ES-335 – and it includes tickets to an exclusive gig

The Gibson Custom Shop has announced a new Collector’s Edition replica of Slash’s 1963 Gibson ES-335, which will be limited to 50 models and include a pair of tickets to an exclusive show at Gibson’s Nashville HQ.

Slash fans might recall that when the Guns N’ Roses man debuted the first track from his new blues album Orgy of the Damned – a cover of Howlin’ Wolf classic Killing Floor – he did so wielding a stunning vintage ES-335, equipped with a Bigsby, rather than his trademark Les Paul.
