Gibson Slash AFD USA

05 Aug Gibson Slash AFD USA


Jase Manley

Hello im Jase, I live in the UK and i was born in 86' and i love anything to do with guitar. Iv been a big fan of ACDC since i first heard them when they played live in the VH1 studios in 96' what a great show! As soon as i watched that i started learning guitar. I started off with a cheap Honer acoustic which i had till i was about 15, thats when i kinda lost interest. I left school a fews years later and had been in the adult world for a few years and by now i was 19, so i decided i wanted to play again so i saved up 4 weeks wages and bought a Crafter acoustic. I always had dreams of a Gibson SG seeing as though Angus is my idle :-) It wasnt till last year that i was actually in the position to be able to afford one, i started off by buying a Gibson SG Standard and a Marshall MG100fx which i thought was terrible, i just couldnt get that tone i really wanted. I sold that in the end and started lookin on eBay regularly and came across a JCM2000 with a 1960a cab which i actually won for £360. Iv never been happier i think its a great amp. I will post videos eventually but i still have a lot of gear i still need. I also recently bought a Gibson AFD USA and i can honestly say it plays like a dream! Very high quality for a USA

    Congratulations! It’s a beautiful guitar! My best friend is a Slash fanatic. he even went to the Slash memorabilia charity auction in Beverly Hills a few months ago and bought one of Slash’s stage outfits.

    He also has this guitar and he let me play it. I was really surprised that the quality far exceeded my expectations! I thought the newer Gibson USA guitars were slipping a bit in quality, but not this one. They put an amazing amount of detail in this guitar. It’s very well balanced and the PLEK setup is spot on. The guitar played and sounded great! I even like the VOS treatment, which isn’t as harsh as the Custom Shop SG’s I’ve seen with well worn/aged-looking parts. The VOS on the Slash guitar looks perfect.

    Congrats again and enjoy that guitar!
