Gibson Publishing will release their first book, The Collection: Slash, in January 2023. A premium, hardcover coffee table photo book, Slash will tell the story behind the instruments he has used throughout his music career.
At over 300 pages, the book features new insights and stories through new interviews with Mark Agnesi, Director of Brand Experience at Gibson, as well as photos of Slash and his impressive guitar collection shot by the Gibson team, as well as photos by the legendary rock photographer Ross Halfin.

The Custom edition measures 297 x 420 mm (11.69 x 16.54″) and comes inside a deluxe clamshell protective box with a premium case. The package includes an Axe Heaven Appetite Les Paul miniature guitar, an exclusive Slash bandana, a guitar pick tin with Dunlop guitar picks, a cover poster, four guitar art prints, and a certificate of authenticity.
