Guitar greats including Slash, Brian May, Peter Green, and Jeff Beck have been photographed with their most beloved instrument for a new charity exhibition.

The rockers joined other stars including Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera, MC5 rocker Wayne Kramer, and the Stone Roses’ axeman John Squire for the display, in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.

They all posed for snapper Scarlet Page while clutching their most treasured guitar, and the images will be exhibited at London’s Royal Albert Hall during the Teenage Cancer Trust gigs later this month.

Page confesses one of the hardest stars to convince to take part was Fleetwood Mac’s Green, telling Mojo magazine, “I felt truly honored that he said yes and, aware that photography is not one of his favorite things, I tried to keep it as quick and painless as possible.”
