Slash appeared at the Marshall booth at the 2010 NAMM show to unveil a new amplifier, dubbed the AFD100.
It recreates the 100-watt JCM2203 the behatted one used to record Guns N’ Roses seminal 1987 debut Appetite For Destruction.
Slash told Guitarist mag editor Mick Taylor, "It was an amp I originally rented from SIR, and of all the amps I tried out, it just sounded amazing. So basically I stole it! Then I left it in the back of the truck one day when we were rehearsing at SIR and they kinda’ took it back.
“Over the years, there have been a lot of people out there trying to replicate this amp, so we gathered all the information and put it out as the Marshall AFD100.”
Paul Marshall explained that "…for the very first time, fans of Slash and Marshall will be able to go online and follow the amp’s development; the concept, the work by the designer, the circuit, Slash trying and testing it… right through to the launch later this year. We have a dedicated website set up at www.afd100.com. We’ll be uploading progress updates, video content and more."
