    LP with a piezo

    Gibson Slash Les PaulPublished on 06/25/11 at 17:18
    This is really just a standard Les Paul with a few slight tweaks to make it Slash's own personal signature guitar. The guitar has a mahogany body with a maple top, a mahogany neck with a rosewood fretboard, 22 frets, trapezoid inlays, two humbuckers, no pickguard, three volumes, one tone control, a special Fishman powerbridge with a mini toggle switch and a three way switch.

    UTILIZATION

    The coolest feature on this guitar is the Fishman Powerbridge. I'm pretty sure that's why everyone gets this. For those that don't know, the Fishman Powerbridge is a normal bridge, but it had piezos built into it. That allows you to get that electrified acoustic sound going on. I think the John…

    UTILIZATION

    The coolest feature on this guitar is the Fishman Powerbridge. I'm pretty sure that's why everyone gets this. For those that don't know, the Fishman Powerbridge is a normal bridge, but it had piezos built into it. That allows you to get that electrified acoustic sound going on. I think the John Petrucci EBMM is the most popular model to have this feature, so if you've ever heard his live stuff, you've heard the piezo. The fretwork on this model was good, and the nut was properly cut. Everything else was pretty much on par with normal Gibson standards.

    SOUNDS

    The humbuckers in this guitar weren't too bad. They had that PAF tone going on, and they got that signature overdriven sound once you start using this with a Marshall amp. The bridge is bright but powerful. I was able to play everything from AC/DC to 80s metal with it. The neck had that signature kind of Slash tone going on. I prefer something a bit thicker with more output, but that's me. The piezo added a really unique blend of tones once you started messing with it. I was able to switch between acoustic sounds and overdriven sounds without too much of an issue. It definitely adds another dimension from the standard Les Paul.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The main reason to buy this guitar is for the piezo feature. Aside from that, it's pretty much a standard Les Paul that everyone knows and loves. The overall fit and finish was good, so they're quality guitars. The biggest problem is that they cost quite a bit of money, so eBay hunting is a must.

    UTILIZATION

    As already owner of a Gibson USA AFD, the weight of the Tobacco overgrazing me first ... Chouiat a heavier, but definitely not insurmountable.
    It is on Gibson LP, so as usual, with access to training quickly becomes acute easier.

    SOUNDS

    Let the sound ... the piezo Fishman Powerbridge that can be used individually or coupled to magnetic pickups, provides an infinite number of variations and nuances.
    It really feels good to play on acoustic and thereby banging November Rain is a delight (Patience also).
    For the rest, Seymour Duncan actually fulfill their function well ... basically it plays well on the Slash!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Fan Gibson Slash Signature LP, Tobacco this is for you ... 500 euros less would have been perfect but good when you love, you do not count (well anyway) ...
    In your sub, take your eyes closed ...
