Jim's Comments: "With his Les Paul and wall of Marshalls, Slash has been an icon in the guitar world since 1987. To cover his career to date required several specific Marshall amp and speaker combinations. For fun, we also included Izzy Stradlin profiles for the first two GNR albums. This pack is so versatile that it may very well become the basis for your rock profile collection."
Please Note: Obviously, the guitar is a very important part of the signal chain, and differences between guitars will affect the tone. We used Jimi's 1954 Les Paul Goldtop with original 1950s PAFs as a neutral reference to build the profiles. If your guitar has a fuller tone, we recommend increasing the Treble and Presence together. Try increasing them both by 0.3 and see how that sounds. If your guitar is bright, try reducing the Treble and Presence by 0.3 and go from there.
