Thin Lizzy guitarist Gary Moore’s guitar collection will go up for auction later this year.

While a date hasn’t been sent from the sale, the announcement from his estate has already sparked interest among collectors.

Graham Lilley, who helps manage Moore’s estate, told the Belfast Telegraph: "A chunk of it will be retained by the estate for the time being.

"But there's a lot of stuff left and it's made to be played, to make a noise with, so somebody should make a noise with it.

"It's just trying to find the best way to do it. Some of it might find its way to auction websites, so anybody can bid on it, fans for example, and get a little piece of that heritage.

"Quite a few of the bits have been viewed by one of the top-end auction houses. What will actually go in the sale is unclear at this moment.

"We're possibly looking at June, but there's no reason that the less-documented stuff couldn't go out before that."

Moore started his career with rock band Skid Row before joining Thin Lizzy in 1974 after the departure of the band’s original guitarist.
