TOOL's ADAM JONES Gifts Young Guitarist His Signature Guitar After Some Awesome Cover Songs

Maya is a fantastic guitarist.

Maya Adam Jones

We posted about young Maya back in June after she covered the entirety of Tool's epic "7empest" on guitar. Maya has hardly slowed down since then, posting a handful of Tool covers over on her YouTube channel. Obviously Tool guitarist Adam Jones was watching Maya's skills and decided to give her the ultimate tool for playing his riffs.

Maya got the surprise of her life last week when Jones sent her one of his signature Gibson Les Paul's with a signed headstock and she looks utterly thrilled. You can watch Maya's shock as she unboxes the guitar in the video, as well as read the entire story from her father below via a pretty lengthy Reddit post. We look forward to eventually witnessing a Maya and Jones jam session, which is sure to be plenty awesome!

"Guys, I have an incredible and unbelievable news to share with you all! Adam Jones, the legend, sent a fully personalised, signed Gibson Signature guitar to my 9 year old girl Maya! This is the best moment in her life and I am so happy to witness and experience that moment with her. I've been wanting to share this news with you all here in reddit yesterday itself but ever since Maya posted her reaction videos in YouTube and Instagram she has got so much love and support from so many people and it's been really busy helping her catch-up with the comments and an incredible experience!

"None of us can believe Adam Jones did this. What a kind hearted, caring and a generous man he is! Tool already changed our life so much but now this made us respect and adore them even more. It is incredible and heart warming to see that such amazing people exists in this world and goodness prevails! For someone who is in such a level, achieved so much, being so famous and having such a busy life, he still showed what a humble and a caring person he is! What a human being! I always respected him a lot and now I respect him even more!

"You have to see Maya's reaction video when she received this amazing gift from Adam. It gives me tears every single time I watch that video. I can experience her emotions and if I get overwhelmed just witnessing that, I can't imagine how overwhelming it would have been for Maya. For Maya, Adam Jones is the God! Ever since she started listening to Tool, her love and passion for guitar increased astronomically! It shows in all of her videos. That's all because of Adam Jones. She started analysing his music so much, started learning how to use the effects like him, seeing how Adam makes simple sequence of notes sound so beautiful just the way he plays him, how his playing makes Maya transcend to a journey, Adam is the biggest inspiration for her! And now receiving this beautiful, thoughtful and very very generous gift from Adam, it has changed her life even more!
