Slash gets his own doubleneck guitar from Gibson

Slash is getting his very own doubleneck guitar from legendary instrument makers Gibson. The company has announced the Slash 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck.

A pre-sale is officially underway now for the axe, which will be sold through select authorized Gibson dealers and available in-store on October 1st.

The Guns N’ Roses guitarist bought his original 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck from a small music store in Indiana in 1990 and began using it extensively after that. Gibson is now presenting an exact replica of the original guitar, constructed and aged by the craftspeople at the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville.

Each Slash 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck will be hand-signed by Slash himself and includes a vintage replica hardshell case, a custom Slash concho guitar strap and a Certificate of Authenticity.

Slash and his solo band, Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, are winding down the touring cycle in support of their most recent studio album, last year’s Living The Dream. A concert LP and DVD titled Living The Dream Tour will arrive on September 20th. Slash will head back on tour with Guns N’ Roses later this month.
