Slash and Gibson luthiers have teamed up to create one of his favorite stage guitars for 30 years. Introducing the Slash "Jessica" Les Paul Standard from Gibson. Made in close collaboration and with significant input from Slash, the guitar is available via authorized Gibson dealers and on www.gibson.com.

Guns N' Roses, Velvet Revolver, and Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators fans will undoubtedly be familiar with the guitar that Slash named "Jessica." Jessica has been Slash's main stage guitar since 1988 and is still on the road with him to this day. The original Jessica is a factory second and one of two Les Paul guitars that Gibson sent to Slash in the late 80s. Now, Gibson is proud to introduce a new model based on Slash's old favorite. Jessica features a three-piece plain maple top on a non-weight-relieved mahogany body and a mahogany neck with a 50s Vintage neck profile. Jessica is powered by a pair of Custom Burstbucker pickups with Alnico 2 magnets that are hand-wired to Orange Drop capacitors. Originally a bright Cherry Sunburst, Slash had Jessica refinished, which is reflected, minus the considerable road wear on the original, in the gloss nitrocellulose Honey Burst with Red Back finish used on the new model. Slash's signature is reproduced on the truss rod cover, the rear of the headstock features Slash's familiar 'Skully' logo, and Schaller Strap Locks are preinstalled on the guitar. Other extras include a Slash guitar pick set, a Gibson USA leather strap, a multi-tool, and a blank truss rod cover inside the included hardshell case. (continue)

I hatched the Freaks of Nashville collective in my basement studio on 13th street in Nashville in 2018 and it is comprised of a group of working musicians with an interest in combining the groove and political fire of live Afro-beat with my lyrics and melodies. "World Gone Crazy" debuts the forum and features an "End of Days" ear worm hook, a signature Frankie Hill sax solo in the second verse, and the song reprises as a stream of conscious spoken word essay.
