Three Jeff Hanneman guitars are up for auction

Posted by on July 23, 2015

In conjunction with the Hanneman estate, ESP is auctioning off some of Jeff Hanneman’s guitars, with a portion of the proceeds going to  the Wounded Warrior Project, a charity that the late Slayer guitarist supported.

From the ESP auction site:

“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. But wait, there’s more: each guitar is in the original case that Jeff owned and used to store and tour with these guitars, and some of the offerings have more inside the case than you’d imagine. Each guitar auctioned will also include a certificate of authenticity from the Hanneman Estate.”

Starting bids on each of the three guitars is $12,000, with eight days to go. The three guitars were made between 2008 and around 1990, with one of them, “festooned with German phrases and names,” coming with a delay pedal.

Jeff Hanneman of Slayer passed away on May 2, 2013, at the age of 49. In his absence, however, the band has forged ahead, with a new Slayer record, Repentless, due out September 11th.
