What’s the best way to thank someone for letting you borrow something? For Axl Rose, it’s buying a really expensive gift. After borrowing Dave Grohl’s famous “break a leg” throne to help him through his own injury, Axl Rose thanked Grohl with a super expensive guitar. In the latest issue of Classic Rock, Grohl has revealed that Axl had Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash go out and pick out a guitar for the Foo Fighters frontman.

Grohl says it was “an early-’60s Gibson ES 335 Dot, which to this day is the nicest f***ing guitar I have ever played in my life.”

What’s the nicest way someone has ever thanked you for something? Do you lend things out to people very often?
