br /> The Herald Sun, which claims to have told Slash about the case, reports that 16-year-old Gavin Duggin lost eight of his 14 guitars in the disaster, including one signed by the rock star when he was last on tour in the country with Velvet Revolver.

"I still can't believe it. It's amazing," said Gavin of the replacement, which is from Slash's signature range of Les Pauls.

According to the newspaper, Slash sent the guitar to the teen's home in Melbourne not long after hearing the story.

A photograph appears in the publication showing Gavin being presented with the instrument by Wes Carr of Australian Idol.

Slash is arguably the most prominent Les Paul player in the world and is known to own several dozen of the instruments.
