December 1, 2020, marked the release of the new Gibson Slash “Victoria” Les Paul Standard Goldtop guitar, the newest addition to the Gibson Slash Collection.
The Slash “Victoria” Les Paul Standard Goldtop features a maple top, a solid mahogany body with a dark finish on the back, and Slash’s personal touches, including a C-shape neck profile, Gibson Custom BurstBucker Alnico 2 pickups, color-coordinated hardware appointments, hand-wired electronics with Orange Drop capacitors and a vintage-style hardshell case. Exclusive to the Slash Collection is Slash’s “Skully” signature drawing on the back of the headstock, Slash’s signature on the truss rod cover, a blank truss rod cover in the case, Slash’s new Ernie Ball® strings, and four Slash Jim Dunlop Tortex® picks.
The new Goldtop joins the previously announced four Les Paul Standard electric guitars and two J-45 Standard acoustic guitars that make up the Slash Collection.
The Gibson Slash Collection crosses three decades of partnership between Gibson and Slash, and in a history-making move for the brand, is the first evergreen artist collection made by Gibson. Slash and Gibson worked in close collaboration and the collection features multiple acoustic and electric guitars. The Slash Collection represents the influential Gibson guitars Slash has used throughout his career, inspiring multiple generations of players around the world.
