(Classic Rock) A guitar played by Slash during the early days of Guns N' Roses is expected to fetch up to $80,000 at auction. The metallic red BC Rich Warlock guitar goes under the hammer at Julien's Auctions in Los Angeles on November 5.

Slash bought the guitar in 1984 from the Hollywood Music Store in West Hollywood and used it live for the first time at Madame Wong's West in Santa Monica, California, on June 16 of that year where he performed with pre-GNR group Hollywood Rose alongside Alx Rose and Steven Adler.

He later used it during the first ever Guns N' Roses show with the classic line up of Rose, Adler, Izzy Stradlin and Duff McKagan at the Troubadour in West Hollywood on June 6, 1985.

Slash has signed the body of the guitar and also drawn his signature skull and crossbones logo and written "R&Fn R." It comes with a letter of authenticity also signed by Slash. Read more here.
