1996年Slash依照自己的想法與Gibson共同合作打造的Snakepit蛇窩，因外觀出眾特殊，Slash與Michael Jackon演唱會上合作後因而聲名大噪，這也是Slash第一支量產琴，由當年的技師T.C. Harrison純手工雕刻與鑲貝，官方對外聲明限量100支，但因製作過成繁瑣最終生產不到70支。Slash於1996/1997年向Gibson獲得了四支，但於1998年被遭竊走三支，如今Slash只擁有一支Snakepit，這也是他最珍貴的吉他之一。
In 1996, Slash collaborated with Gibson to create this Snakepit guitar based on his own vision. Its distinctive and unique appearance garnered significant attention after Slash's collaboration with Michael Jackson during a concert. This was also Slash's first commercially produced guitar, meticulously handcrafted and inlaid with seashells by the technician T.C. Harrison. The official statement indicated a limited production of 100 units, but due to the intricate manufacturing process, fewer than 70 guitars were ultimately produced. Slash acquired four Snakepit guitars from Gibson in 1996/1997, but three of them were stolen in 1998. Currently, Slash only possesses one Snakepit guitar, which is also one of his most cherished instruments.
The top features hand-carved and painted "Snakepit," Slash's personal emblem. The fretboard is adorned with a cobra inlay made of seashells, representing its aggressive nature. This was the only time Gibson incorporated such elaborate craftsmanship in a production model, making it exceptionally ornate. Well-preserved Snakepit guitars are currently valued at a minimum of approximately US$100,000, and they remain the rarest and most collectible among Slash's Signature models.
