Jane's Addiction GuitarTown tribute welcomes you to West Hollywood...

The final batch of GuitarTown creations have featured tributes to everyone from iconic music artists like David Bowie, Cyndi Lauper and Freddie Mercury, to infamous venues like The Viper Room, but it's this Jane's Addiction guitar homage that is currently welcoming visitors and commuters alike to the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood.

Other cities have their own versions of this kind of outdoor public art project, be it San Francisco's Hearts of San Francisco sculptures, the international Cow Parade installations and even L.A.'s own Community of Angels Project from the past, so it'll be a shame to see this annual charity initiative come to an end, but don't despair you can check out many of the previous GuitarTown music tribute sculptures that have graced the infamous Sunset Strip since August 2010 here at Jason in Hollywood.

It's been a blast spotting and cataloguing all these over-sized Gibson Les Paul guitar creatives since the project's inception, but I'm sure something else will come along and catch my magpie eye in the future...
