Slash auctioning guitar collection

Slash has revealed plans to sell 14 of his guitars at auction next month including the acoustic guitar which used to record the Guns N' Roses track 'Patience'.
Great deals on musical instruments

Slash will sell 14 of his prized guitars at auction next month.

The former Guns N' Roses guitarist - who estimates he owns at least 100 of the musical instruments -will sell a Guild acoustic which he used to record the single 'Patience' along with various other custom guitars.

Slash decided to hold the sale because a recent house move made him realise he has a "bad habit of collecting stuff that I don't necessarily use".

Along with the guitars Slash will also sell two of his trademark top hats and a selection of jackets, T-shirts and jewellery.

A 1966 Corvette Stingray with an estimated selling price of $90,000 is set to be one of the non musical highlights of the sale with the rocker - who released his first solo album last year, and is also in the band Velvet Revolver - with him admitting he will be sorry to sell the "monster of a car" he bought at the beginning of his career.

He said: "I know that somebody will love to have that car because muscle cars are very, very popular."

The March 26 sale is being organised through Julien's Auctions with a sizable share of the proceeds going to a local charity for abused and homeless teenagers.
