Gibson unleash the Slash ‘Victoria’ Les Paul Standard Goldtop

Words by Will Brewster

The latest entry into the Slash signature series is nothing short of a stunner.

Guns N’ Roses guitar hero Slash has once again partnered with Gibson to debut the ‘Victoria’ Les Paul Standard Goldtop, paying tribute to one of the top-hatted guitarist’s most iconic riff machines.

Packing a hefty mahogany body with a dark finish on the sides and back and a maple cap with a flashy gold finish, the ‘Victoria’ Goldtop is right up there with one of Gibson’s most eye-catching guitars released in 2020.

The instrument features a standard C-shaped neck profile and a rosewood fretboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and a Graph Tech nut, ensuring for a comfortable hold up and down the neck while playing chords and single note runs alike.

In the electronics department, the ‘Victoria’ Goldtop features two Gibson Custom BurstBucker Alnico 2 humbuckers, with Orange Drop capacitors and hardwired electronics pushing it further into premium territory.

Other additions to Gibson and Slash’s latest signature offering include Schaller strap locks and Slash signature Ernie Ball strings, plus a leather strap, blank truss rod cover, Slash Jim Dunlop Tortex pick set and a multi-tool, all packed into a vintage hard shell case for safekeeping.
