Guitarist Slash is getting his spring cleaning started early this year, as he has decided to auction off a car, some guitars, and various personal items including clothing, jewelry, and even a couple of those famous hats. The auction, run by Julien's Auctions, is scheduled for March 26, with most of the proceeds going to charity.
According to Reuters, the prized item of the auction will be Slash's 1966 Corvette Stingray, which was the first car he bought after Guns N' Roses rose to superstardom in the late '80s. Julien's estimates the car will go for at least $90,000 to $100,000. Slash is also parting with 14 of his guitars including a Guild acoustic on which he recorded the GN'R monster ballad "Patience," plus various custom and one-of-a-kind Telecasters, Stratocasters, Sanchez, Epiphone, and B.C. Rich models. Additionally, there will be assorted jackets, t-shirts, jewelry, and two of his trademark top hats.
