The infamous nightclub and music venue has been a notorious Hollywood hangout since 1993 and was partly owned by Johnny Depp, and this guitar tribute was created by T. J. Roe and can be currently found on display outside the Pink Taco eatery further east along the Strip from The Viper Room.

This guitar homage joins tributes to the likes of music legends David Bowie and Prince, plus Bob Marley and Janis Joplin guitars and Freddy Mercury in this years wave of GuitarTown creations designed to honour iconic rockstars and the unique rock 'n' roll history of the Sunset Strip.

I'm sure this won't be the last giant Gibson guitar to pop up to brighten the neighbourhood, so I'll keep my eyes peeled for more...
