Gibson Guitars have a new Slash 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck they have just unveiled to the world.
In a statement Slash says, “Excited to announce that I’ve partnered with Gibson to offer an incredible copy of my 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck, limited edition and signed. Available at select dealers worldwide October 1.”
“Slash continues to inspire legions of players all over the globe,” adds Cesar Gueikian, Chief Merchant Officer at Gibson. “The creation of new 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck is the perfect way to pay homage to Slash’s extreme talent and share a favorite guitar with generations to come.”
According to Gibson for Slash “the 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck both diversified his sound and solidified his guitar god aesthetic. SLASH 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, became a favorite tool for studio and stage and an indelible part of SLASH’s signature sound. Gibson is proud to present this exact replica of the original guitar, constructed and aged by the skilled craftspeople at the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville, TN. Each Slash 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck will be hand-signed by SLASH himself and includes a strikingvintage replica hardshell case, a custom SLASH concho guitar strap and a Certificate of Authenticity”.
