SLASH Presented With One-Of-A-Kind Gibson Les Paul Slash Anaconda Burst Guitar At CES (Video)

On January 9, GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash was presented with a one-of-a-kind Gibson Les Paul Slash Anaconda Burst guitar at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada. Check out video footage below.

As part of Slash's new range of signature instruments with Gibson that were developed and tested throughout the GUNS N' ROSES tours of 2016 and 2017, each guitar features an exclusive green Anaconda Burst finish, AA flamed maple top and mahogany body and Slash's personal touches, including Slash's thick neck profile, Slash signature humbucking pickups and a Slash snakeskin inspired hardshell case.

Last year, Gibson Brands appointed Slash as Global Brand Ambassador, the first such designation in the company's history. As part of the new role with Gibson, Slash is developing new products with three of its celebrated guitar brands, Gibson Custom, Gibson and Epiphone.

Throughout his career, Slash has embodied Gibson's values of quality, prestige and innovation and has brought the indelible sound and style of Gibson guitars to new heights of popularity and recognition over the last 30 years.

Slash joined GUNS N' ROSES in 1985 in Los Angeles and quickly rose to international fame by the summer of 1987 with the release of the band's debut LP, "Appetite For Destruction", which has sold over thirty million copies and became one of the best-selling rock albums of all time. Slash's signature sound and epic solos were recorded with several of his favorite Gibson guitars, which introduced an entirely new generation to the power and passion of music delivered through those instruments. Over the past three decades, Slash has collaborated closely with Gibson and the company's CEO, Henry Juszkiewicz on several projects including product development, marketing, live events and supporting charitable initiatives with the Gibson Foundation.
