-Made in China ... yes, we can not have it all.
-We get down to business ... rosewood fingerboard, 22 medium jumbo frets (neither too big nor too thin). For pickups: 2 Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro humbuckers (neck and bridge)
Lockton-Bridge Tune-o-matic tailpiece + Lockton Stopbar
-All possible settings: a volume knob and tone micro (ie 4 in total) and a 3-position switch (neck, neck and bridge, bridge)
Slash-Profile-Channel, between the 50's (thick) and the 60's (end) at Gibson
Epiphone Vintage Tombstone-Mechanical (tulip-shaped)

UTILIZATION

-There is no adjustment for the handle, he is stuck with the addition of a fixing lug along (part glued to the table)
-Like all Les Paul, the access to the galley is a bit sharp, but it's just a matter of getting used to ... nothing dramatic
Ergonomics-perfect, it is a pure Les Paul, with a good weight, well balanced (the handle does not dive to the floor when the door standing) (yes with a strap, it helps!)
-The sound is what is best, a superb amp without resonance, sustain crazy when plugged

SOUNDS

-Perfect for my style (what better than a signature for a Slash fan of Guns N 'Roses?)
-It is plugged into Marshall Valvestate 8080 (80W combo), I turned my Zoom G2.1 so it sounds good, nothing changed!
We can get almost any sound possible, its clear, warm, gentle with the neck pickup (as by adding the super chavalet), we can then move on to crunch with the bridge pickup, it sounds good rock n 'roll of 60 - 70's, then a nice distortion smooth and pleasant as Guns N 'Roses (especially with the neck pickup) and then a little more aggressive with the bridge, like Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, something very heavy, and finally just going to outright Bourin big game with a gain in depth and contour thrived, reaching Metallica or worse! And of course, we can refine all this thanks to the tone knobs ... (solo Knockin 'On Heaven's Door intro to Money For Nothing ac tone to zero, eg ..)
"I like so any sounds, the Seymour Duncan has an excellent record in clean / crunch highs tend to over-nationals, but just lower the tone and not put too daigus .. it's a really detailed and agrébale

OVERALL OPINION

"I have the Epiphone since January 08
-I like the special is that it's a signature with a flawless finish (it comes out of the Custom Shop, Limited Edition) suburst an extraordinary mind-blowing sound that really fits my style ... what which however is not great is that it comes with a sticker on the table (repeating Slash's hat with the characteristic of the guitar writing it), but it is paper and there was not pretend to stick it ... I removed a fatty product ac anti adhesive and now I find myself with indelible traces of the varnish (micro scratches, reflecting matte) ... so imagine the ac scotch brite, short ca crazy balls! then the mechanisms are not very precise, yet spend little m'enfin ca. Finally the strings friezes enough, but hey they are new, and over time the handle is put in place, you should be fine!
-At the beginning I had gone on a BC Rich Mackingbird as Slash, but I was too excited and then I found it nowhere except on the net. After I tried a Epiphone Les Paul Standard ... then a Gibson Les Paul Studio as my economy allows virtually. And I saw this Epiphone Signature out some time after, a Standard LP signed by my God ... then I hesitated between a perfect signature of my idol, but Epiphone, and a Les Paul Studio, but by the legend ... Gibson. And finally, it is a good mieu Epiphone, beautiful finish, a wonderful quality, rather than a small Gibson, unfinished extra time ... and I think that Gibson Epiphone survive mieu LP Studio (1200 € the Gibson and the Epiphone € 760).
-The price, € 760, while the LP Standard Epiphone are basic to around € 500, is well justified, we are treated to lots of little extra and a limited edition custom shop
-With experience ... it's the right guitar! Then it will take much save for a gibson LP standard or € 2100 to 2600 Slash signature ...
