, an incredible all-inclusive package for beginners and pros alike featuring a Slash-designed Les Paul Special-II in classic Appetite Amber finish with premium gig bag plus a 15-watt Slash “Snakepit’ amp with 2-channels, a full EQ section and headphone output, custom Slash signature picks, and free online lessons from eMedia.
"I never stopped to think, 'What am I gonna to do in the long term?'
Or ruminated on my solo career, where it was heading," Slash told Epiphone. "I've just been jamming around, going wherever the muse has taken me. And this is the first time where I feel like I'm in the saddle and riding my own destiny with some genuine focus."
Slash's hope for the "AFD" pack was to make "just a good quality guitar, plain and simple. Good hardware, good components. Great pick-ups. I also love the built in tuner. And the Snake Pit amp is basically modeled after what I would consider a good sounding practice and or live amp for small venues and recording. I tried to model it after the sounds that I get out of my bigger amps."
