One of the occupational hazards of being the lead guitarist of a record-winning rock band is accumulating an excess of guitars through the years. This seems to be the predicament that Foo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflett has found himself in.
If you have always dreamed of owning a collectible guitar that you can brag about, this is your chance. Shiflett has decided to streamline his guitar collection from twenty to two by selling his guitars online.

“I have more than I could even really play, and more than I do play. 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 says.
The guitar sale will go live on July 19th at Reverb.com. The collection includes his 2002 Gibson Firebird Reissue, featured in the Foo Fighters’ video of “All My Love”, and many other special pieces.
So, get your credit cards ready, and good luck on snagging the guitar that you want.
