All Axess recently caught up with legendary guitarist Slash (GUNS N’ ROSES, VELVET REOLVER) to talk about his first-ever guitar, as well as the guitar he has used on every album since the GUNS N’ ROSES classic “Appetite For Destruction”. The video interview can be seen below.
“My first guitar that I ever got was a one-string, Spanish acoustic guitar,” Slash said. “I had that one string on there for a pretty long time before I learned how to put the other five strings on.”
Slash‘s first electric guitar was a Memphis Les Paul copy “that was pretty special to me,” he said, “up until I learned that it wasn’t really that great a guitar [laughs].”
Slash‘s pride and joy, however, is none other than his Gibson Les Paul. “[That’s the guitar] I recorded ‘Appetite For Destruction’ with and recorded all the subsequent albums with GUNS N’ ROSES, and the solo records that I’ve been doing lately,” he said. “That’s really my most special guitar.”
