Guns N’ Roses legend Slash designs guitar

The Velvet Revolver axeman's new range will be available from April

Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash has designed his own range of guitars.

The limited edition run of three guitars, featuring two Gibsons and one Epitaph, will be available from April 1, and are expected to sell-out as soon as they are released.

Slash said: “I have always been a Les Paul player and am very proud to have my own range produced by Gibson and Epiphone, the maker of the world’s greatest guitars. I hope that musicians around the world enjoy them as much as I do.”
