GIBSON, EPIPHONE Unveil New SLASH, ZAKK WYLDE, RANDY RHOADS Guitars For Christmas

According to MusicGearReview.com, Epiphone offers two new outfits designed by two of the greatest guitarists of all time, Slash and Zakk Wylde. The Epiphone Slash Appetite Les Paul outfit was inspired by the axe that the legendary GUNS N' ROSES guitarist played on the multi-platinum-selling "Appetite for Destruction" album. Epiphone and Slash have teamed up to bring the ultimate "Appetite Les Paul Standard Outfit" to the market just in time for the holidays. The model combines all the features found in Slash's original guitar. MSRP $1,525 USD.

Not to be outdone by a fellow icon, Zakk Wylde and Epiphone announce the Epiphone Zakk Wylde PeeWee and VeeWee Bullseye "Zakk Pak". It's a small rig with a mighty sound, driven by the force of an Epiphone Les Paul combined with a Marshall MS-4ZW Micro Full Stack amp and Zakk's signature design. The new Epiphone Zakk Wylde PeeWee and VeeWee Paks come with everything you need to rock out like the BLACK LABEL SOCIETY frontman. MSRP $308 USD.

American heavy metal guitarist Randy Rhoads, who played with OZZY OSBOURNE and QUIET RIOT, will be honored by Gibson Custom with the release of the Gibson Custom Shop Randy Rhoads Signature Model Les Paul Limited Edition guitar. Rhoads often combined his classical music influences with his own heavy metal style and remains one of the most influential players of our time, despite his short career. The Gibson Custom model is a faithful recreation of Randy's '74 Les Paul Custom, which features a "sandwich" '70s Les Paul Custom body, Randy Rhoads thin D neck profile, his name stamped in the pickguard and newly developed "super 74" pickups. MSRP on VOS model is $7,056 USD and on the Aged it is $9,880 USD.
