Description: Slash EDIT
Saul Hudson (born 23 July 1965), more widely known by his stage name Slash, is an English-African American guitarist best known as the former lead guitarist of Guns N’ Roses and as the current lead guitarist of Velvet Revolver.
Slash owns over 114 guitars. The guitar he recorded Appetite For Destruction with was a hand made flame-top 1959 Les Paul replica with no pick guard and 2 Seymour Duncan pickups. His main live guitar is a 1987 Les Paul Standard with 3 piece top (Factory Second). It has a cracked neck in 2 places, but he has had it repaired and continues to use it. Most of Slash’s electric guitars have Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro pickups which are low output pickups.
He favors Ernie Ball Slinky R.P.S gauge 11-48 strings as well as Dunlop Purple Tortex (1.14 mm) picks and Seymour Duncan APH-1 Alnico II Pro and Vintage Gibson PAF pickups. He keeps his guitars in tune with a Peterson Strobe tuner.
Slash uses Marshall amplifiers, employing a vintage Marshall 1959 on “Appetite For Destruction.” For the recording of Velvet Revolver’s debut, he used a Vox AC30 and small Fender tube amps. For the recording of Velvet Revolver’s second album, he used the new Marshall Vintage Modern 2466 amp.
