Over the years, SLASH's rise to rock royalty has featured a variety of iconic Gibson guitars, but it was the 1966 EDS-1275 Doubleneck that 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 striking vintage replica hardshell case, a custom SLASH concho guitar strap and a Certificate of Authenticity.
