NAMM showcases myriad musical instruments and gear but the guitar, as it rightfully should, reigns supreme. So, on Saturday at the overloaded Anaheim Convention Center, no appearance caused a greater commotion than Slash's–because, let's face it, he's one of the last true guitar gods. He's a top hat wearing, cig smoking, bourbon swilling icon. Slash's Guns N' Roses contributions compare with anything in the upper echelon of hard rock awesomeness and his work with Velvet Revolver, well, it's not so bad.
“We're so excited about the Fender partnership,” said OCMA's Ashley Eckenweiler. “It was a great moment getting to display the Awards banner at their entrance.”
