On January 16, 2010, at the Winter NAMM Show, Marshall Amplification announced that it has begun working on a project with the legendary guitarist Slash to produce a new amplifier that recreates the sound of the revered Marshall amplifier he used on the 1987 album "Appetite for Destruction" by Guns N' Roses. The new amplifier will be known as the AFD100. Fans of both Marshall and Slash will be able to follow the progress of the amp's creation by visiting http://www.afd100.com/
, where they will receive regular updates throughout its development stages and can also leave comments. The final model is planned to be released later this year. Marshall Amplification has had a long association with Slash — the JCM 2555SL Slash Signature Series amplifier was released in 1996.
