Epiphone and Slash team up for new Firebirds


Epiphone proudly presents the new Ltd. Ed. Slash Firebird Premium Outfit and Ltd. Ed. Slash Firebird, designed by Guns N’ Roses legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Slash! Production of the new Slash Firebird Premium Outfit will be limited to only 100 guitars, each hand signed and numbered on the back of the headstock by Slash. The Firebird Premium Outfit includes a Custom Hard Case, a custom leather strap, and a Certificate of Authenticity.

In 2017, Slash was named Gibson Brands’ first Global Brand Ambassador. And to celebrate his new Firebird Premium Outfit, Slash has hand signed and numbered all 100 Firebird Premium Outfits, which include a hard case with Slash’s “Skull and Top Hat” logo and a custom leather strap.

But if you miss out on finding one of the 100 signed Firebird Premium Outfits, you’re still in luck! Slash has authorized an additional 900 Ltd. Ed. Slash Firebird guitars to be sold worldwide.  And both the Firebird Premium Outfit and the Ltd. Ed. Firebird guitars have the same specs and features designed by Slash with Epiphone’s luthiers in Nashville, TN.

“The Firebird design has always been attractive to me,” Slash told “From a sonic point of view, they are set up to do a very different kind of thing than what I do with a Les Paul. I finally got a chance to do one with Epiphone that was more to my specs. And they did a beautiful job. I figure if it stands up to me it will stand up to most anybody.”

Slash’s new Firebirds feature a AAA Flame Maple top in a Translucent Black finish, a Pau Ferro fingerboard, Seymour Duncan “Slash” Open Coil Humbuckers, and Sprague “Orange Drop” capacitors.
