(Gibson) It's well known that Slash is a Les Paul guy, and in a recent Esquire feature the top hat-sporting, slick six-stringer explained his experience meeting and getting to know the musician and inventor.

"I used to think Les Paul was a guitar. I didn't know he was a real guy," Slash said. "When I got to know him, I found out that if you're really obsessed, he was the guy you'd want to be like. He was always trying to find an answer for what he was looking for in his mind. If things didn't exist, he built them himself. He single-handedly created what I consider 'popular music.'"

As for guitar playing, Slash says it simply comes naturally: "Guitar is the best form of self-expression I know. Everything else and I'm just sort of tripping around, trying to figure my way through life." more on this story
