All Blacks legend Aaron Smith gifted original Six60 guitar

Six60 gave departing All Blacks halfback Aaron Smith a guitar for his final test match in Dunedin at the weekend.

In a video uploaded to the official All Blacks Instagram account and shared by Six60, 'Nuggie' was given the guitar from the living room at the band's home at 660 Castle St and a speech from the band before the clash against the Wallabies.

Singer Matiu Walters presented Smith with it as well as delivering a speech in which he thanked him for his "service to rugby".

Saying they were honoured to be able to "watch the game", Walters said the band was there "to celebrate you and to thank you, to be honest, for your service to rugby and the city of Dunedin."

"You know it was very important to us too [to be here] - we wanted to give you this gift, yes this guitar. In 660 Castle Street, we had nothing but dreams, this guitar was always in the living room and it's where the first songs came from."

Walter also said that it was "Jai's guitar but he didn't wanna do the speech so..." before ending with applause and: "Thank you bro, we'd like you to have this."

The 118-test stalwart also led the haka for the last time on home soil before the game.

On Saturday, Smith made his last home appearance in an All Black jersey, fittingly at Dunedin's Forsyth Barr Stadium, where he made his name for the Highlanders.

The All Blacks won the game, beating the Wallabies 23-20.
