The traditional Epiphone Clipped-Ear headstock has a standard 2-way adjustable truss rod. And Slash’s “Snakepit” logo is printed in gold on the back of the headstock.
Seymour Duncan Humbuckers: For his new Epiphone signature Les Pauls, Slash chose his favorite Seymour Duncan “Slash” Humbucker open-coil black pickups. As Slash explained on the Seymour Duncan website: “From working in a music store and having them replace pickups all the time, I discovered that Seymour Duncan made the best pickups. So when I got the Les Paul with the Seymour Duncans in it, I knew that those pickups were going to be killer. It was just this particular model – the Alnico II Pro… they’ve been the main pickups in my Les Pauls ever since.” Standard controls for each pickup’s Volume and Tone feature traditional Gold Top Hat knobs. Tone controls for both pickups also feature Sprague “Orange Drop” capacitors just like those found in rare vintage Les Pauls.

Slash Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO and Premium Outfit come with Epiphone’s rock solid hardware including a classic Epiphone LockTone™ Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, Epiphone StrapLocks, Deluxe machine heads with 18:1 ratio Ivory “tulip” buttons, and a rim-mounted Non-Rotating Heavy-Duty output jack with Cream jack plate.
