Slash Signature Les Paul

I was on a guitar forum one time when a kid was trying to rationalize his desire to purchase a signature Slash Les Paul: "If it's good enough for Slash, it's good enough for me."

Well, I hate to break it to you, kid, but it wasn't good enough for Slash.

The iconic "Gibson Les Paul" used on Appetite for Destruction was ghost-built by a guy named Kris Derrig. Yeah, that guitar right there is not a Gibson.

Happens all the time, kid. Don't fall for the endorsement deal nonsense. Get what works for you, not what you imagine works for someone else.
