The Ltd Ed Slash Firebird comes in two versions. The premium comes with additional niceties such as hardcase and personal signature from Slash himself and is limited to 100 pieces worldwide while the regular version is limited to 900 pieces without the added goodies.

The premium version’s case and strap. 

Both guitars have identical specs, and boy, these are loaded with some serious hardware. We got Seymour Duncan Alnico 2 pickups, Kluson tuners and Switchcraft jack, so this is indeed a premium Epiphone guitar.

Gibson unveiled the 2019 models in early September.

Nothing groundbreaking, but some cool colours and basic models look interesting.

The Les Paul Standard in Seafoam Green

Gorgeous finish on the maple top. This was previously released on Ltd Ed models so a great choice of colour to entice buyers.

Flying V and Explorer in Natural finish

Great looking pair of alternate shapes in classic vintage colours. Priced quite sensibly too.

LP Jr Tribute DC

A really cool LP Jr with double cutaways. At US$799 retail, this could be a hit. \

See the rest of the new models at the official website.

This could be the ultimate guitar for those who want a Fender that takes the Strat shape with Tele layout/controls/sounds.

Strictly for the purists who demands Fender brand on the headstock. The rest can always go the Warmoth route. 🙂
