Broken Hope’s Jeremy Wagner Acquires The Guitars Of Slayer’s Jeff Hanneman’s, Using Them On New Album


Broken Hope guitarist Jeremy Wagner has acquired an extensive private collection of guitars previously owned by late Slayer guitarist Jeff Hannemann. Wagner has been using the guitars exclusively throughout the writing for the band’s next album, telling Guitar World:

“Riffs are just flowing out of me. 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.”

Pre-production for that effort is currently underway. The full story of how Wagner came to possess the guitars can be found in the January issue of ‘Guitar World‘.
