GIBSON Unveils New SLASH Signature Model, Jessica

Gibson and Slash have teamed up to create the new Gibson Slash “Jessica” Les Paul Standard, capturing all the magic of Slash’s most-used-live Les Paul.


The Jessica offers a non-weight-relieved Mahogany body and pickguard-less 3-piece Plain Maple top to match the same specs of the original “Jessica” Les Paul Standard Gibson sent Slash in 1988. The Jessica offers a Rosewood-topped ’50s Vintage Mahogany neck, dual uncovered Burstbucker Alnico 2 pickups, Slash-approved Schaller strap locks, vintage deluxe Keystone tuners, and a custom Slash-signature truss rod cover.

“This guitar has been with me since 1988,” said Slash of the original guitar. “It’s faded, I fucking dropped a cigarette on it… I named it when I was drunk but I don’t remember what the catalyst for that was!”

On using the guitar live for over three decades, Slash added: “Both of ’em were pretty identical, with a bright Cherry Sunburst. I started using those on the road for a while, then I had them refinished so that they were a little duller. And that became my main stage guitar and the backup all the way through Guns N’ Roses and on through Velvet Revolver, and now with Guns again.”

Get it here for $3,199.
