SLASH Doubleneck Guitar Coming From GIBSON

SLASH Doubleneck Guitar Coming From GIBSON

Gibson has announced the Slash 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck. A pre-sale is officially underway now for the Slash 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck guitars, sold through select authorized Gibson dealers and available in-store October 1.

Over the years, Slash's rise to rock royalty has featured a variety of iconic Gibson guitars, but it was the 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck that both diversified his sound and solidified his guitar god aesthetic. Slash bought it from a small music store in Indiana in 1990 and put it into rotation almost immediately. Using the natural chime and chorus of the twelve-string neck and composing epic solos on the other, became a favorite tool for studio and stage and an indelible part of Slash's signature sound. Gibson is proud to present this exact replica of the original guitar, constructed and aged by the skilled craftspeople at the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville, Tennessee. Each Slash 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck will be hand-signed by Slash himself and includes a striking vintage replica hardshell case, a custom Slash concho guitar strap and a Certificate of Authenticity.

Slash says of the new 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck: "Excited to announce that I've partnered with Gibson to offer an incredible copy of my 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck, limited edition and signed. Available at select dealers worldwide October 1."

"Slash continues to inspire legions of players all over the globe," adds Cesar Gueikian, chief merchant officer at Gibson. "The creation of new 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck is the perfect way to pay homage to Slash's extreme talent and share a favorite guitar with generations to come."

The release of the new Slash 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck comes as Slash and his band, SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS, recently wrapped their 2018-2019 headlining world tour in support of their most recent studio album, the critically acclaimed "Living The Dream".

With the Top 5 rock song "Driving Rain" and its live-action, animated video, as well as the best critical acclaim of SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS career, "Living The Dream" debuted with 10 Top 10 chart placements around the world.

A special live concert album and DVD titled the "Living The Dream Tour" will arrive on September 20 via Eagle Vision.

Catch Slash and his 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck live in action this fall as he rejoins his GUNS N' ROSES bandmates for the next leg of their "Not In This Lifetime" tour, which restarts at the end of September.
