Slash Gets ‘First Guitar’
Great Days for Gibson Guitar and Signature Artist Slash
Nashville, Tennessee… August 27, 2010….
On the heels of a worldwide jaunt across the globe celebrating his first solo album release, legendary guitarist Slash was presented with a very special "first guitar" from the world’s premier musical instrument manufacturer and leader in music technology, Gibson USA.
The story of the American icon’s recovery and resurgence from the May 2010 floods in Nashville was presented with strong testament in West Hollywood, California at the Key Club on Monday, August 20, 2010 where Slash was presented with the very first guitar to roll off the production line since the devastating floods hit the music city.
The guitar, a Gibson Les Paul Studio, came off the production line in July, 90 days after the flood, and was kept on display at the plant for all employees to view prior to it being given to signature artist Slash.
