album, the Epiphone Slash Appetite Electric Guitar has been billed as one of the most anticipated guitar launches of the year.

The hard maple is then carved using a traditional roller-type carving machine for added authenticity. Epiphone tediously carves each body creating the sexy curves and subtle dish
along the outer edge of the top that transforms it into an authentic Les Paul. AAA-grade maple veneer is then applied to the top for a gorgeous 3-dimensional look.
The neck is also crafted from premium mahogany then glued into the body using TiteBond wood glue, utilizing a long-neck tenon typically found on the Les Pauls from the late 1950s and early 1960s. Extending well into the neck pickup cavity, the long-neck tenon provides additional strength and stability to the neck, and offers more wood-to-wood contact between the neck and body, which ultimately results in sweeter tone and longer sustain. The neck also features a Slash Custom
neck profile patterned exclusively from the neck on Slash’s original Les Paul and a rosewood fingerboard fitted with 22 nickel/silver alloy medium-jumbo frets. Pure Rock and Roll!
At the heart of every Les Paul is a pair of humbucking pickups kicking out the tone that has set the standard for rock and roll for over 50 years. The Appetite
LP features Slash’s signature Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro pickups providing the same crunch, power and performance as Slash gets when he cranks up one of his own personal Les Pauls. These humbuckers are like the ones that Slash has used for years and feature Alnico 2 magnets. However, these Slash Alnico II Pro’s are wound with just enough boosted output to push a stock Les Paul toward the sweet sustain and rude crunch that characterize Slash's sound. Also unique to this Slash model is the reverse
Zebra-coil pickup in the bridge position.
To further capture the vintage Les Paul tone that Slash loves, this guitar features a tone circuit using high-quality Orange Drop
tone capacitors that was tested and approved by Slash himself.
