Slash's rise to rock royalty featured a variety of iconic Gibson models, but it was the 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck that both diversified his sound and solidified his guitar god aesthetic. He bought it from a small music store in Indiana in 1990 and put it into rotation almost immediately. Using the natural chime and chorus of the twelve string neck and composing epic solos on the other, it became a favorite tool for studio and stage and an indelible part of Slash's sound.
Gibson is proud to present this exacting replica of the original guitar, constructed and aged by the skilled craftspeople of the Custom Shop in Nashville, TN. Only 125 models will be sold worldwide. Each has been hand-signed by Slash himself and includes a vintage replica hardshell case, a custom Slash concho guitar strap and a Certificate of Authenticity.
