Longtime lead guitarist of Foo Fighters, Chris Shiflett, has announced that he’ll be auctioning off twenty of his own guitars through Reverb.
“I have an excess of guitars that I’ve gotten over the years—I have more than I could even really play and more than I do play,” he said.
Starting tomorrow, Foo Fighters’ lead guitarist Chris Shiflett will be auctioning off twenty guitars from his huge personal collection.
Among the guitars going up for sale will be a 1960’s Vox Phantom VI Black, a Gretsch Brian Setzer Signature Black Phoenix, the first Fender Chris Shiflett Signature Telecaster Deluxe prototype, and the 2002 Gibson Firebird V Reissue used in Foo Fighters’ All My Life music video.
“It would be fun to see these things find a home elsewhere, where somebody’s going to actually play them and put scratches on them,” Shiflett continued.
“I’m going to take these 20 guitars and turn them into two guitars. That’s kind of my plan.”
Shiflett joined Foo Fighters in 1999, following Pat Smear’s departure from the band, and is also currently a member of Me First And The Gimme Gimmes
The auction is set to kick off July 19th. Check out more over at the Reverb website.[via SPIN]
