  1. I got what you were saying...I got into collecting Les Pauls a few years ago so that's why I've got so many...Out of my 12 I only really use 5 of them on a regular basis...The closest model to his specs they've made I think is that Custom Shop model with the Fishman bridge. The neck profile was unique to that particular guitar....I wouldn't mind getting my hand on one of those Guild Crossroad Double Necks he designed...That thing is pretty badass.

  2. No disrespect ' date=' not into signature models of any kind, but is it not ridi****us to buy a copy of a copy - even Slash's favorite Les Paul is not a Les Paul. I mean does that not tell you something ?

    Even more ridi****us Gibson is selling them. My Tabaco burst 01 standard does what I want it to do . Does not make me write better songs or play better if it had Slash's name on it. Funny the only thing you guys say you don't like about is the Slash logo scribble. Why not buy a nice Les Paul ?No dis , just weird for me, each to their own, just read the gtr mag about this one, kinda weird.[/quote']



    Just feel the need to clear something up.... Did I buy it because I'm a fan of Slash ?...Absolutely, but I also have many other Les Pauls that do not have his name on there (12 including the 4 Slash model LP's)... I do find it amusing that it's a copy of a copy which was part of my interest in it....Also it came with the new Slash signature pickups and different capacitors in it than previous models.

  3. Very nice. Chambered?


    Nope....It's got the traditional weight relief....you know' date=' the swiss cheese [blush


    Nice! I would love one of them. What's it play like? Better than expected or not?


    It plays great....I find the neck to be comfortable and I like the new Slash signature pickups.....They're louder than the old Alnico II's used in the previous models..... The only thing I'm not too crazy about is the Slash artwork on the headstock.....I've got three of the other Slash models as well. The V.O.S., the Tobacco Burst Standard (with the same artwork on the headstock....didn't like it then either), and the Custom Shop model with the Fishman bridge....My favorite is still the V.O.S., but this is definitely a sweet guitar.

  4. Thanks...I haven't been on there much...But yeah...that's why I got my Mockingbird SL....It had all the electronics in there....I had the electronics installed in a different Mockbingbird later on (Neal Moser did it)....There's a lot of interesting sounds you can get with them....Plus....For me that's one of the reasons to get a real BC Rich.

  5. Thanks Jocko.... The "singer" is you wanna call him one is an idiot... He screwed a lot of people over and became physically abusive to our bass player (female), so the band walked out on him... No big deal though.... Matt knows the guy I'm talking about.... The dude looks like The Penguin from Batman... Haha
