Words by Mixdown staff

SLASH’s original ES-335 is a super clean example from 1963 which proved inspirational when recording his latest solo record, the star-studded blues album Orgy of the Damned, out May 17 on Gibson Records.

As it celebrates 130 years of music history, Gibson, the iconic global instrument brand, is proud to announce its decades long partnership with the iconic, GRAMMY Award-winning guitarist and songwriter SLASH continues with the release of a very limited Collector’s Edition 1963 ES-335 from Gibson Custom. Made in close collaboration with SLASH and the expert luthiers of the Custom Shop in Nashville, Tennessee and artfully aged by the Murphy Lab to match the original guitar, only 50 of these Collector’s Edition hand-signed guitars will be available exclusively via the Gibson Garage Nashville, alongside an exclusive VIP live performance at the Gibson Garage with the artist this summer.

“I used a beautiful and killer sounding 1963 ES-335 Gibson for more than a few songs on Orgy of the Damned,” says SLASH. “Gibson has now built a fantastic replica of this extraordinary guitar. Same dot neck, Bigsby tremolo, and finish. You have to check it out.”
