London: Former `Guns N` Roses` guitarist Slash is selling off 300 of his prized possesions, including his first car, to raise money for charity.

The items up for sale include his trademark top hat, 14 guitars, a Harley Davidson motorbike and the car, a 1966 Corvette, which comes with a price tag of USD 120,000.

The sale also includes model dinosaurs, a wooden cobra, South Park pinball machine and a bench from 1975 film `One Flew Over The Cuckoo`s Nest`, reported a daily.

Proceeds from the sale will go to a charity benefitting homeless children.

The sale is the brain-child of the 45-year-old`s wife Perla Hudson, who said "Getting him to go through his 150 guitars was hard. I guess he can spare 14."
