Broken Hope's Jeremy Wagner Acquires Jeff Hanneman's Guitars (Top Story)
The guitar collection were sold to raise money for the Wounded Warriors Project, and although he hasn't revealed how much he paid, they were each originally listed at $12,000.
And he's reported that he's finding inspiration from playing them as he writes for Broken Hope's seventh album. Wagner tells Guitar World: "I feel a responsibility to Jeff and to Kathryn to use these guitars in a way that honors him.
"As long as I own them I will use them and carry on Jeff's legacy. He remains a huge influence on me - I probably wouldn't be here as an extreme metal guitarist-lyricist without him." Read more - here.
