It will be a good year for Slash fans. The Cat in the Hat has just shared his new Epiphone signature models on Instagram. Bringing his favourite Les Paul shape to the masses could be a shrewd move for everyone involved, as they should be a lot more affordable for many players.
Epiphone Slash Signature Les Paul
This post on Instagram confirms the existence of the new line of Epiphone Slash Signature Les Paul models for 2021.
Here they are in all their glory, the Epiphone Slash Signature Series due out this year. They play & sound killer. & look good too. iiii]; Slash
We can see five colours are on offer including his signature Anaconda Burst finish and a “Victoria” Gold Top model just like the one announced recently, plus an Appetite Amber, Vermillion Burst and November Burst. It looks as though these will all be the same finishes available as in the standard Gibson production models. Hopefully, they will also have his signature humbucking pickups as well.
No more details as yet, but I’m sure Epiphone will announce something official later this week. He has had Epiphone signature models in the past. But these have the new headstock shape, so I’m expecting updated specifications for these 2021 models.
Let us know what you think. Are these a sweet alternative to the full fat Gibson signature models?
