Slash was recently named Gibson Brands’ first Global Brand Ambassador. And to celebrate, earlier this year Epiphone released the Ltd. Ed. Slash Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO Premium Outfit which was limited to only 100 guitars, each hand signed and numbered on the back of the headstock by Slash. The Premium Outfit includes a Custom Hard Shell Case with, a custom leather strap, and a Certificate of Authenticity.
 Slash came to Epiphone’s headquarters in Nashville, TN to hand sign and number all 100 Premium Outfits, which include a hard shell case with Slash’s “Skull and Top Hat” logo and a custom leather strap.

But if you missed out on one of the 100 signed Premium Outfits, you’re still in luck! Slash has authorized an additional 900 Ltd. Ed. Slash Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO guitars to be sold worldwide. And both the Premium Outfit and the Ltd. Ed. Slash Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO guitar have the same specs and features designed by Slash with Epiphone’s luthiers in Nashville, TN.
