Gibson has ‘officially’ confirmed the Epiphone Slash Collection, plus a host of new signature models for the coming weeks. We have already seen the new Gibson Adam Jones USA Les Paul Standard model being teased in the last few days. But now there are even more signature models imminent.
Epiphone Slash Collection
The Epiphone Slash Collection, first teased by Slash via his Instagram account back in January, is set to officially debut on 20 July. This new affordable line of guitars based on the Gibson Slash Collection will include Epiphone versions of the Slash Les Paul Standard, Slash “Victoria” Les Paul Standard Goldtop and Slash J-45 acoustic guitar.
“Our new Epiphone Slash Collection brings our collaboration with Slash to the next level, expanding the offering of the iconic Slash models to Epiphone with an accessible price point,”
“Slash was intimately involved in every aspect of the development of his new Epiphone Collection, and we are all excited to see his fans around the world rock out with them!” –Cesar Gueikian, Gibson Brand President.
Tony Iommi, Jerry Cantrell and Nathaniel Rateliff Signatures
Gibson has also teased more signature model guitars, such as the new Jerry Cantrell “Wino” Les Paul. It’s uncertain if this is the guitar Cantrell shared on his Instagram account, or if it’s an as-of-yet unannounced acoustic model. Speculation on The Gear Page is that it may be a signature Hummingbird model.
- Gibson USA Tony Iommi SG Special due out on 17 August
- Gibson Custom Shop Jerry Cantrell “Wino” Les Paul due out on 24 August
- Gibson Acoustic’s Nathaniel Rateliff LG-2 Western Acoustic in Vintage Sunburst on 31 August.
We will keep you updated over the coming weeks and share any more official information that Gibson releases during Summer NAMM 2021 over the next few days.
