Guitar CollectionThe January 2016 issue of GUITAR WORLD Magazine (on stands now) has an exclusive, compelling, and unique feature regarding the reactivation of famous guitars owned by SLAYER’s late guitar-god, JEFF HANNEMAN. SLAYER fans and GUITAR fans, read on:

SCORES OF EXTREME metal bands have been influenced by SLAYER over the years, but Jeremy Wagner, guitarist for death metal outfit Broken Hope, has taken his love and reverence for the band-and, in particular, guitarist Jeff Hanneman-to new heights. The guitarist and songwriter is currently composing music for a new BROKEN HOPE record, their second since reuniting a few years back, and he’s doing it using only guitars that were previously owned and played by Hanneman himself. How did these instruments come into Wagner’s possession?

From the oldest and most iconic to the two most recent models Wagner acquired from the late great Jeff Hanneman, Jeremy Wagner has vowed to compose the new BROKEN HOPE  album exclusively with these legendary guitars. “Riffs are just flowing out of me.” states Wagner in the exclusive interview with Guitar World. “I feel a real responsibility to Jeff and to Kathryn to use these guitars in a way that honors him. As long as I own these guitars, I will use them and carry on Jeff Hanneman’s legacy. He remains a huge influence to me, and I probably wouldn’t be here as an extreme metal guitarist/lyricist without him.”

BROKEN HOPE is currently in Wagner’s home studio doing pre-production for their 7th, as-yet-unnamed studio album, due out for release in 2016. Additional album details to come. Be sure to grab your copy of the January issue of GUITAR WORLD at your local retailer or order now at
