Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash announced he will sell his personal items, including a car and guitars in an auction.
The former rock star teamed up with a Beverly Hills auction house to sell a wide range of personal property to fans and collectors. A large share of the proceeds from the auction will go to charity, Reuters reports.
Auctioneer Darren Julien said he expects most of the items to end up overseas, particularly in Japan and other Asian markets where Guns N' Roses are still admired.
The auction comes at a time when the 45-year-old guitarist and his wife, Perla, are moving houses. Through the auction Slash wants to boost funds of a local charity for abused and homeless adolescents.
This auction, to be held on March 26, is also a way for Slash to get rid of clutter he has accumulated throughout the years.
I have a bad habit of collecting stuff that I don't necessarily use, Slash told Reuters.
The biggest item that will be auctioned is what Slash calls a monster of a car -- the 1966 Corvette Stingray is estimated to sell for at least $90,000 to $100,000.
Slash said that this is the most difficult item to get rid of because it was the first car he bought when Guns N' Roses were becoming famous in the 1980s.
I know that somebody would love to have that car because muscle cars are very, very popular, he said.
He will also sell fourteen of his 100 guitars. Among the guitars to be auctioned is a Guild acoustic on which he recorded the band's ballad Patience.
Those with eccentric styles will a calling for skulls and dinosaurs are in luck. Slash will also be letting go of jackets, t-shirts, jewelry and furniture. Most of Slash's furniture has an exotic Southeast Asian design. Slash will also sell two of his signature top hats.
