Slash - Kris Deerig Les Paul Replica

While appearing to be an actual Gibson Les Paul, the guitar Slash used in Guns N' Roses to record the classic album "Appetite For Destruction" was actually a replica of a 1959 Les Paul built by LA luthier Kris Derrig at MusicWorks in Redondo Beach in May of 1986.

Purchased for Slash by Guns N' Roses manager Alan Niven, it featured a fat 1958 neck profile, a flamed maple top and a Honduran mahogany neck and body.

Coupled with a rented Marshall 100 watt amp, it was the foundation for the iconic Guns N' Roses guitar sound.
