Guns N’ Roses fans will want to pay close attention to this.  Former GN’R guitarist Slash will auction off a lot of cool items starting next month, including a guitar that was used to record one of the band’s best songs.

Celebrity auction firm Julien’s Auction will launch the sale March 26.  Among the items that fans can bid on is the Guild acoustic guitar that Slash used to record Guns N’ Roses’ 1989 hit “Patience”.  The biggest item on the block is a 1966 Corvette Stingray, estimated to sell between $90,000-$100,000.  Slash told Reuters that it would be tough to part with the car as he bought it when GN’R were getting big in the late 80′s, but it’s just been sitting in storage for some time.  Slash hopes someone else can give it the attention it deserves.

“I know that somebody would love to have that car because muscle cars are very, very popular,” he said.

Other items up for auction include t-shirts, jackets, and jewelry, which, not surprisingly, all have some sort of skull theme.  Two of Slash’s trademark top hats will also be included in the sale.  Proceeds from the auction will mostly go to charity.  Slash decided to part with a lot of his stuff because he and his family just moved.  The guitarist felt it would be the perfect opportunity to de-clutter.

“I have a bad habit of collecting stuff that I don’t necessarily use,” Slash said.

Don’t we all?  Hell, I have so many DVDs and video games still shrink wrapped.  Maybe I should start an auction.  Hmmmmm.  Check out the video for “Patience” below in case you forgot how awesome the song is.
