You know you are a guitar legend when one of the instrument’s preeminent makers anoints you their global brand ambassador. So congratulations are in order for Guns ‘N’ Roses legend Slash. Gibson has named him their first ever Global Brand Ambassador.

It’s hard for me to dispute that pick. The guitarist I first think of as most synonymous with rocking a Gibson is Slash, and he is in pretty amazing companyTwo other good picks for a Gibson ambassador would have been Ace Frehley, who made Gibson’s cut.

And this guy, who inexplicably did not!

Angus Young for me at least deserves an honorable mention for rocking a Gibson SG better and longer than any other guitarist.

But at the end of the day, I have to agree with Gibson’s choice here.

Thoughts on Gibson’s pick? Do you agree with it?
