From the article [Slash's Les Pauls Through The Years](http://www2.gibson.com/News-Lifestyle/Features/en-us/Slash-Les-Pauls-Through-The-Years.aspx) that was published on Gibson's website. "Released in 1997, this guitar took a bit of inspiration from a slim-necked Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Slash had built for him in 1990, at least in the sense that both were bright red …but more on that later. The Snakepit model featured the logo of Slash's Snakepit (his post-G'n'R band) and an elaborate, curling cobra fretboard inlay. It was limited to 100 guitars worldwide, although the initial plan was to build 50. They're quite rare and tend to change hands for a lot of money today."more
