Sorry,
I thought the one with PU covers and a pickguard. Because he is mostly known for using open coils and no pickguard.
You can see it throughout the video when he is playing with his little signature Marshall.
At the 7:50 mark in the video you can get a clear shot of it but maybe its just a reissue because its looking really clean(apart from the tuning keys)

I didn’t see any 1959 LP’s in that video. :)

Turn on your monitor. :ganz

That's the new [to Slash] 59 Burst.
I'm surprised nobody recognized it yet.
I checked with my friend and I can tell you all, Slash now owns 9-0592, sometimes known as the Robert Johnson Burst.
I owned it years ago, and I am glad he got it, and also glad to hear that he is really happy with it. :dude:

So funny, I JUST watched the Ernie Ball video and came here to post that I think he's playing his new burst in it. Thanks for the confirmation Tom!

This is where the name came from. This old photo from 35-40 years ago. :jim

That's a monster guitar. Probably required an extra leg of the GnR tour to pay for it.

Looks in great shape. Do we know where it was after you owned it, Tom?

It went from me to Vic. After that it changed hands again, maybe several times.
Now in the capable hands of a fantastic Rock and Roll guitar player. :dude:

Wow, I'm very rarely fooled but that did it. I even knew Slash had bought one of the 'famous' ones.
Unfortunately, that burst doesn't do a lot for me. Not very inspiring looking. A very "historic" looking burst, as odd as that sounds.

I was at the KAABOO show. Very fun.

I'm pretty sure he played the Appetite guitar quite a bit. And a darkburst.
