Apparently, guitarists don't always play the guitars they get right away. Sometimes, it sits in the box it came in for over a decade. This is the case with Slipknot's Jim Root, and a Gibson that he's had for 11 years.
"Ship date May 2010. So. 10 year anniversary... seems like a good reason to open it, right? Oh. Wait. It’s ‘21. ‘20 just shouldn’t fucking count. So yeah. I stand by it. 10," Root wrote in the caption for his Instagram post, which showcases the guitar still in its box.
