Description

The Gibson Slash Core Collection Les Paul Standard left-handed guitar is the first Slash signature model to sport pickups of his own design—the custom-wound SlashBucker. It also incorporates Slash’s favorite specs from his own collection of vintage and Custom Shop Les Pauls, like a solid mahogany body topped with AAA flamed maple and a thick profile neck. With his famous “Skully” drawing on the back of the headstock, it’s a perfect ‘Paul for players who want a ’50s-style Standard spec’d by a true master.

The Gibson Slash Les Paul Standard left-handed guitar comes with a hardshell case.

Core Collection Neck
The mahogany neck has a ’50s C-shape, a beefier profile than ’60s Les Pauls. The rosewood fretboard features the Gibson standard 24.75" scale length, perfect for Slash-style bends.

Slash’s Signature Electronics
The heart of this left-handed Les Paul Standard is the SlashBucker humbucker. Hand wired with Orange Drop capacitors, the tone is full of midrange honk, with more crunch available by adjusting the 500k volume and tone pots.

Superior Hardware
All hardware on the Core Collection Les Paul Standard is color-coordinated, including the ABR-1 bridge, stopbar tailpiece, and vintage-style Tulip tuners.

Other high-quality specs include Slash’s signature on the truss rod cover (a blank cover is also included), top hat knobs and acrylic trapezoid inlays. The Gibson Core Collection Les Paul Standard comes with new Slash Ernie Ball strings, 4 Dunlop Tortex Slash picks and a deluxe hard shell case.
