Here are some quotes from Slash in the video:
“It’s funny, it was just a Phone call last year to Gibson to see if they really actually wanted to pursue it. I wasn’t sure if they would go for it, but was really glad that they did.”
[…] “Highlights on this guitar, first off is the Seymour Duncan Slash model Alnico Pros which are made exacly like the original pickups that I used in the ’80s”
[…] “Old style speed knobs – Tune-O-Matic bridge/saddle”
[…] “old fashioned capacitors were actually a little bit hard and find and jumbo frets. It’s basically setup just like my original was.”
