Slash presented with Gibson Les Paul Studio guitar
The first electric guitar to have been created following the floods in Nashville has been presented to Slash.
But the famous musician was presented with his new Gibson Les Paul Studio guitar during a ceremony at the Key Club in West Hollywood last week after work resumed at the company's plant.
The electric guitar had been on display at the factory for employees to view after it became the first model to be finished after the plant was reopened following a 90-day closure because of the floods.
Gibson was also the sponsor of the recent Sunset Strip Music Festival which featured Slash, where August 26th was officially declared as being Slash Day.
As well as featuring a performance from the star, the music festival also saw acts including the Smashing Pumpkins and Kid Cudi take to the stage during the special one day event.
