Ever the archetypal rock star and ranked as one of the world's best guitar players of all time, Slash has spent years traveling the world and collecting various items which will now come to the auction block for the very first time.

His collection, being offered in this exclusive auction, will give the world a once-in-a-lifetime glimpse into the often secret world of a rock star's life and travels and a portion of the proceeds benefits Los Angeles Youth Network in which Slash is very active.
