In 2017, Slash was named Gibson Brands' first Global Brand Ambassador. And to celebrate, Slash has designed his first Signature Firebird for Epiphone! Slash’s Limited Edition Firebird features the classic Firebird profile that has gone virtually unchanged since its debut in 1963 and is made with a AAA Flame Maple top and a 3-piece Mahogany body in a Translucent Black finish chosen by Slash. The traditional Firebird style pickguard is layered white and black and has Slash’s “Skull & Top Hat” log in red. The Mahogany neck is glued to the body with a deep-set neck tenon and has a standard 24.75" scale and a rounded custom "Slash" profile. The Pau Ferro fingerboard has single-ply cream binding with Pearl trapezoid inlays, a nylon nut, and 22 medium jumbo frets along with a 2-way adjustable truss rod. The back of the Firebird's traditional reverse headstock has Slash’s Snakepit logo in gold.

Slash is a longtime fan of legend Seymour Duncan’s hand-wound pickups, and for his new Epiphone Firebird, Slash choose custom Seymour Duncan "Slash" open coil-humbuckers for the rhythm (APH-1) and the lead positions (APH-2). These were Slash’s first custom pickups made with Seymour Duncan and feature Alnico II magnets and are slightly overwound for a boosted output. Each pickup has a single conductor cable, a long-legged bottom plate, and a wooden spacer. Controls include individual Volume and Tone pots with traditional Black Top Hat knobs with metal inserts and pointers along with a Switchcraft 3-way Toggle switch. Tone controls for both pickups also feature Sprague "Orange Drop" capacitors (0.022uF, 600V, 5%), the same capacitors Slash uses on his custom designed Les Pauls.

The Epiphone Limited Edition Slash Firebird also features Epiphone's rock solid nickel hardware including a classic Epiphone LockTone ABR Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, Kluson Reissue Firebird Banjo-style machine heads with a 12:1 ratio, a Switchcraft 1/4" output jack, and Epiphone Straplocks. Case not included.

jumbo neck! But tiny frets w/ bad hardware(tuning pegs worse

I do like firebird shape of body. Pretty much 2nd firebird bought as Im used to bolt on necks on offset bodies. When I saw it first, the black tiger stripe maple cap caught my eye but the thickness of the neck felt very comfortable and seems different than average Gibson firebird models. Pau ferro fingerboard isn't fave Wish it had ebony or at least rosewood. The medium jumbo frets seem rather tiny and feel like they could wear out fast. Remind me of a cheaper squire. I use 11 to 12 gauge strings on 25.5 scale guitars so on this 24.75 scale I use Daddario EJ21 12 gauge. I feel if these frets wear fast, a refret would be costly with the binding on the neck. The pickups are hot, I don't know if they are same as from Gibson slash signature but according to name it might be. The firebird weight of the guitar is pretty even from headstock to body so there is only a bit of dip towards the headstock, Ive seen worse. Worse things about guitar: 1) the nut was cut unevenly toward the higher strings. Im not sure if its same on all these guitars of course. This resulted in the bridge being unlevel and the higher string looks like it s at its very end of height which is weird for a good tunomatic bridge... never had this problem. 2 Some of the hardware seems cheap; bridge and tailpiece but most especially... the tuning pegs they don't seem to lock from the back and feel as if they are waaay too loose. I don't know how much it would cost to replace with better ones or if it would need modifications to headstock as in wood drilling, holes, etc... Most fave thing about guitar was the thick neck caught my attention immediately and the firebird shape. Wasn't really caring about the signature line. The pickups are hot, I thought he liked Alnicos. Not exactly sure or haven't seen yet what Slash's signature SD pickuos are. The "Worst" of course are the "banjo" faulty tuning pegs. They seem like the cheapest ones I've ever seen on a guitar. The frets don't feel medium jumbo.

I am not well pleased

Wood is not thick enough for that "Slash" tone. Banjo tuners make neck off balance. The finish would have been better as gloss black. This is a poor excuse as transparent flame, ugly in my opinion.
