gibsonIf you have watched Game of Thrones, you will agree that the Iron Throne is the most coveted seat in the seven kingdoms. It is often used as a metonymic device to refer to the king’s authority and it is awesome.

So awesome is it, that it inspired the creation of a badass Guitar Throne by Gibson Guitar Corporation, an American manufacturer of guitars and other instruments. The guitar-centric iteration of the Game of Thrones chair is a big deal in the U.S, especially to Rock n Roll fans who yearn to sit upon the chair and declare themselves the true rock’n’ roll king (or queen!)

Our very own BET Nominated International Act, Sauti Sol, in their ongoing U.S tour came face to face with the iconic chair and it was Chimano who claimed the title ‘King of Strings’ ahead of the band’s guitarist Polycarp Otieno.

He posted the photo on social media with the caption: Sorry Polycarp I’m the King Of Strings #kingofstrings #AWESOME #Happiness#sautisolUSAtour #BeverlyHills #LosAngeles #soulstyleattitide
