GuitarTown—a public arts project on LA's Sunset Boulevard featured more than 25 Gibson Les Paul-mode guitar sculpture—including a ginormous fiberglass guitar celebrating Jim Marshall, in recognition of his artistry and contribution to music history.

Occupying its home for a year outside the Andaz Hotel (which was the original Hyatt House) on Sunset Strip, the 10-foot-high "Jack & Jim Guitar" was created as a result of a (second) partnership of Jack Daniel's and Jim Marshall Photography LLC. This one-of-a-kind sculpture displays Jim's iconic "Exile on Main Street" recording photographs, taken in 1972 at Sunset Sound Studio (you'll find many of these photographs in "The Rolling Stones 1972"), as well as the bold graphics of the Jack Daniel's Old No. 7 brand. The guitar was auctioned off after its one-year exhibition.
