Guitars Belonging To Late Slayer Star Jeff Hanneman Are Set To Be Sold Off To Raise Money For The Rocker's Favourite Charity.
The guitarist passed away in 2013 at the age of 49, and he left behind a collection of rare and customised instruments.
The axes are now being sold off by his estate via an auction on ESPGuitars.com and a portion of the proceeds will be handed to the Wounded Warrior Project, a charity which helps war veterans.
A message posted on the auction website reads, "When Jeff Hanneman of Slayer passed away in May 2013, he left behind thousands of fans... Jeff also left behind a number of his personal instruments, so in conjunction with his estate, ESP is proud to help with the auction sale of some of his most prized instruments. A portion of the proceeds will go to a charitable cause that Jeff strongly supported: the Wounded Warrior Project.
"Each instrument described below is a one-of-a-kind custom guitar that was in Jeff's personal collection, and he is known to have played all of them on various Slayer tours and recordings."
