1998 Epiphone Les Paul Slash Custom

1998 Epiphone Les Paul Slash Custom
Some call it the Snakepit Les Paul as well.


This is the 2nd guitar I bought in 1999 I believe. Got it from EM Short Music (I think that's the name) in Witchita, Kansas. Ordered it through the phone!


Made in Korea
Mahogany Body
22 Frets w/ Trapeziod Inlays
Tun-O-Matic Fixed Bridge
2 Volume Controls
2 Tone Controls
3-way Pickup Selector
Bridge Pickup: Dimarzio Virtual PAF (DP197, Nickel Cover)
Neck Pickup: Dimarzio Humbucker From Hell (DP156, Red/Yellow)
Transparent Red Finish
Slash's Snakepit Logo

My sister bought this for me actually. I was the one who ordered it though.
It was an impulse buy at first because I was a huge Slash fan. So I told myself, what the heck, just give it a shot. I never regretted this purchase at all. Thanks Liz for giving this to me as an early Christmas present.


At first I wanted to put in Seymour Duncan Alnico 2 Pro Hums in both positions. However at the point in time, the Virtual PAF models were new, and there was somewhat of a hype going on about how good it was. Very smooth tone with PAF qualities yet modern sounding at the same time with a certain presence to it. So I decided to try it.

As for the Hum From Hell, I had it as a spare lying around. I tried that in my Jackson but it sounded too thin, so I thought, in a Les Paul it might be pretty good with Les Pauls sounding very thick and all. And I was right, it worked awesome in my Les Paul so it's gonna stay there for good.


If you want more information about this guitar, feel free to drop me an e-mail or add me on MSN so that we could discuss.
