Epiphone and Slash are proud to present the Slash Collection. Part of the Inspired by Gibson Collection, it celebrates influential guitars Slash has used during his career, inspiring multiple generations of players around the world. Perfect for every stage and players of all levels, the Epiphone Slash J-45 features all solid wood construction with solid mahogany back and sides, a solid Sitka spruce top with a 50s-style pickguard, Grover® Rotomatic® tuners, Graph Tech® TUSQ® nut and saddle, and Slash’s personal touches including a C-shape neck profile, a flatter, more modern 16" fretboard radius, and an LR Baggs™ VTC preamp and under-saddle pickup for natural acoustic sound when plugged in. Exclusive to the Slash Collection are Slash's “Skully” signature drawing on the back of the headstock and Slash’s signature on the truss rod cover. A custom hardshell case with Slash's "Skully" logo is also included. A battery is not included. To power your pickup, you will need a 9-volt battery.
