Slash's Guitar Tribute To Les Paul

Rocker SLASH is dedicating his latest guitar creation to his "man and mentor" LES PAUL.
The former Guns n' Roses star was devastated when guitar icon Paul died this month (Aug09), at the age of 94.
He was among the first to pay tribute, revealing the pair had bonded over their love of the instrument.
Just weeks on, Slash has sat down with technicians at guitar giants Gibson to put the finishing touches to his latest Gibson Les Paul Slash model - which he is releasing to honour his late pal.
Slash reveals on his Twitter.com page, "The new Les Paul is going to be tight, the best Slash model yet, without a doubt. We're going to call the new Les Paul Slash Model the Appetite guitar. It is modeled after the guitar I recorded that album (Guns n' Roses' Appetite for Destruction) with.
"It will be my tribute to Les Paul the man & mentor."
