So, if you’ve been following the story of the Marshall AFD100 guitar amp, you may be interested to know that Slash has finally got his mitts (and his Les Paul) on the prototype version.

Independiente, a UK-based record label and Domino Records in the US, are seeking damages against Guns N’ Roses for copyright infringement. They allege that G N’ R copied parts of two songs by Ulrich Schnauss, a German electronic musician. The labels feel that Schnauss’ songs, Wherever You Are and A Strangely Isolated Place, were used, without permission, on Guns N’ Roses last album, Chinese Democracy – specifically on the track Riad N’ The Bedouins.
