GuitarTown welcomes Jim Marshall and Rainbow Bar & Grill tribute guitars to Sunset Strip...

Two more artistic creations join Sunset Strip's GuitarTown and this time in the form of tributes to the 40th anniversary of the Rainbow Bar & Grill and legendary rock star photographer Jim Marshall.

You'll find this new guitar design outside the Andaz Hotel along the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, where it joins the Marc Bolan of T-Rex inspired Electric Warrior guitar from earlier this year.

The other design joining this collection of giant Gibson Les Paul guitars is to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Sunset Strip's infamous Rainbow Bar & Grill.

Entitled The Butterfly Effect, Nic Adams creation is a nice addition to this outdoor public art installation and also honours the Victoria Alviti Music Foundation, which helps keep music programs alive in schools.

It's such a shame they had to put a plastic screen over the front to protect this photo collage guitar, as I know previous creations have been vandalised in the same location outside the Rainbow Bar & Grill.

If you like these designs, be sure to check out the first wave of 2012's GuitarTown along Sunset Strip here at Jason in Hollywood.

So far that's six new guitars, I'll keep my eyes open in the days to come for any more new additions...
