“It’s been a blast working with Gibson to create a platform for me to talk about my favorite thing, guitars” says Slash. “This book is a great exposé of all the great guitars I’ve collected over many years.”
Over 300 pages in length, The Collection: Slash is a lavishly illustrated, rare and collectible book with numerous photos of the guitarist and his impressive guitar collection, shot by the Gibson team and legendary rock photographer Ross Halfin, whose relationship with Slash extends back to an early Guns N’ Roses portrait session from 1986. Accompanying the imagery are insights drawn from the new, exclusive interviews with Slash himself. Written and edited by Gibson editor-in-chief Chris Vinnicombe, The Collection: Slash is a must-have for both Slash fans and those who admire fine and rare guitars.
Launching simultaneously is the Slash episode of Gibson’s TV interview series titled “The Collection” which takes viewers on a deep dive into the extraordinary, personal guitar collections of music’s biggest artists. Slash and Mark Agnesi (Gibson TV Host and Director of Brand Experience) sit down to discuss the never-before-told stories behind his holy grail vintage pieces, to prototype Gibson signature models, drool-worthy Gibson Les Paul’s, Flying V’s, and more. Watch as Slash and Mark cover a wide-range of Slash’s staggering collection of around 400 instruments.
