Great deals on musical instruments

One of the world's most anticipated electric guitars, the Slash Appetite Les Paul Guitar, will be introduced by Gibson at Musikmesse 2010.

From his groundbreaking work with Guns N? Roses, to Slash's Snakepit, to Velvet Revolver and numerous acclaimed solo and side projects, Slash has continued to embody the ultimate rebel rocker.

He's spent years putting addictive licks and eviscerating tone above all else, and throughout he has continued to do it on his Gibson or Epiphone Les Paul guitar.

To honor this achievement, Gibson USA is pleased to introduce the Slash Appetite Les Paul.

This guitar is equipped with the finest features associated with a Gibson Les Paul, and the added punch of Seymour Duncan Signature Series Alnico II Pro Slash humbucking pickups.

With looks to kill from a Grade AAA figured maple top with nitrocellulose "Appetite Amber" finish, ?Gold? volume and tone top hat knobs and rosewood fingerboard with traditional trapezoid inlays.

Also on-board are specially requested Orange Drop capacitors, a Slash headstock graphic, and enhanced resonance from a TonePros Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece at one end and a high-density Corian nut at the other.

Playability on the Slash Appetite Les Paul, naturally, is flawless, thanks to a solid one-piece Grade A quarter-sawn mahogany neck with Slash's preferred slim ?60s profile.

The 12" fingerboard radius and 22 jumbo frets that have made Les Pauls notorious for big, meaty rock bends for more the past 50 years.

All Slash Appetite Les Pauls come with plush-lined hardshell case with silkscreened Slash graphic and Owner's Manual.
