Slash’s Live Gears Costing

I always wonder how much does the gears of professional guitar players cost. But I never bothered about calculating them, so I thought it would be a good topic for my blog 🙂 The heck is that different guitarists have completely different gear setups which varies greatly in costs. I end up choosing ‘Slash‘ because his gears’ setups are reputed for their complexity, unique tone & he’s my favorite guitar player.

I’ll be costing his current live gears setup for Velvet Revolver.

Here’s the schematic of Slash’s Live Gears:

Gibson Custom Shop Slash Les Paul Signature Guitar (x3)

$4,399.00 x 3 = $13,197.00

BC Rich Mockingbird SL Slash Signature (x2)

$1,700.00 x 2 = $3,400.00

B.C. Rich Bich 10-String


Guild Crossroads 6-6 electric acoustics (x2)

There’s only 3 of those Guild doubleneck guitars in the world, one has been stolen from Slash and he’s left with only 2. They are not available for sale, but judging its high quality & uniqueness I would put a price tag of $5,000 x 2 = $10,000

Gibson EDS 1275 Double-Neck Electric Guitar (x2)

$3,299 x 2 = $6,598

Gibson Les Paul Standard (x4)

$2,329.99 x 4 = $9,319.96

Gibson Custom Shop 57 Les Paul Goldtop Reissue


Nady 950-GT Wireless System

$230.00 (* I couldn’t find the exact price of the Nady 950 – Gt, this price is one of a high-end Nady Model.)

Bradshaw Switcher


BOSS DD-3 Digital Delay


MXR M-108 Ten Band Graphic EQ


Dunlop Heil Talk Box


Ampeg SVTMP Tube Mic Preamp/Direct Box


Peterson Strobe Model 590 Tuner


Dunlop SW-95 Crybaby Slash Wah Pedal



dbx 166XL Dual Compressor Limiter


Rocktron HUSH Noise Reduction Pedal


Shure SM57 Instrument/Vocal Mic (x6)

$99.00 x 6 = $594.00

JCM Slash Signature model 2555SL (x6)

$1499.00 x 6 = $8994.00

4×12″ Marshall JCM Slash Cabs (x6)

$969.00 x 6 = $5814.00

All the main gears of Slash’s live sound are here. You must note that this in an approximate costing because there are other accessories like picks, pick holder, cables, guitar cases & cases for all the above equipments,…the list is too long to mention them all, but it eventually inflates the total cost to a large extent. Sometimes other guitars are added or new models of Amps added in this live setup.

So the gross total cost is $65,673

For us poor Mauritian people we must not forget to add tax, shipping costs,…………….. 😛
