The Slash Signature Rossa Corsa Les Paul blends timeless specs with Slash-approved features and fine points all dressed in a brand new finish from Gibson USA: Rossa Corsa, or ‘racing red’. This luscious, deep-reed transparent finish in hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer beautifully shows off the guitar’s Grade-AAA flamed maple top, while letting the tonewood breath to enhance a rich, deep, resonant tone.
Body and neck The Slash Signature Rossa Corsa Les Paul is built on a foundation of the same traditional tonewood combination that helped to make the Les Paul Standard legendary when it first arrived six decades ago. A carved solid Grade-AAA figured maple top lends bite and articulation to the sound, while a select mahogany back, treated with Gibson’s traditional weight relief to increase playing comfort and enhance resonance, contributes superb warmth and depth.
A solid, quarter-sawn mahogany neck is glued in and carved in the fast ’60s SlimTaper profile that Slash prefers, and topped with a Grade-A rosewood fingerboard featuring 22 medium-jumbo frets and traditional trapezoid inlays. Both the body top and fingerboard are bound in vintage cream; to avoid concealing any of this luscious Rossa Corsa finish, the guitar carries no pickguard.
Slash has always been particular about pickup tone, so he teamed up with Seymour Duncan to produce the Slash Signature humbuckers to his precise requirements. These are made in the image of the hallowed Gibson PAF humbuckers of the late 1950s, with genuine Alnico II magnets, but with a few extra turns of wire for a richer, throatier tone in the neck position and plenty of crunch and wail in the bridge. They are wired in the traditional four-knob control complement with three-way selector switch, and include ‘orange drop’ tone capacitors on the tone pots.
A high-quality TonePros set including a Tune-o-matic bridge and lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece ensure solid sustain and precise intonation, while a set of vintage-style tuners retains a traditional look at the headstock. Strap locks ensure that your Slash Signature Rossa Corsa Les Paul stays secure throughout the most rockin’ performance you can throw at it.
Included Case and Extras
The Slash Signature Rosso Corsa Les Paul comes protected in a plush-lined Gibson USA hardshell case with black exterior and Slash artwork silkscreen. It includes an owner’s manual and adjustment literature, and Gibson’s Limited Lifetime Warranty, and 24/7/365 Customer Service.
