This is basically the same as a regular Slash guitar, albeit with a VOS finish and a few other minor things here and there. Then again, most of these Les Pauls are that way. The guitar features a mahogany body with a maple top, mahogany neck with a rosewood fretboard, 22 frets, trapezoid inlays, pickguard, binding, hard tail bridge, two humbuckers, two volumes, two tones and a three way switch.
The lame on this one wasn't all that strong, actually. They're generally solid flames, but I've seen PRS and other guitars with better ones. Even Jackson can have more intricate flames. Then again, it all depends on what you're going for. The nut on this was cut properly, and I had no issues with tuning. The frets were dead on, and the edges felt great. I really dug how this guitar played, and it had a nearly perfect weight, weighing somewhere around 8 to 9 lbs.
The guitar sounds pretty good, but they're stock Gibson pickups. I'm not totally crazy about these. The sound average, in my opinion. The bridge is medium output, and it sounds fat. However, it doesn't overdrive the amp like I like my pickups to. The neck is a bit too bright for my tastes, but you can calm it down with the tone pot. The coolest thing is the coil split feature. This allows you to split the pickups to get that almost single coil sound. It makes this guitar crazy versatile.
Slash is one of the icons when it comes to Gibson guitars, and this VOS finish model is an awesome "inspired by" guitar. I'm a huge fan of the VOS finishes, and I really wish that all the Gibsons came with them as I honestly feel they both sound and look better. It could just be psychological, but whatever. One thing I'd recommend would be replacing the pickups, but that's just me.
