Collen looking sharp in the fall 2010 Guitar Aficionado.

The world is accustomed to seeing Def Leppard guitarist and longtime Jackson signature artist Phil Collen in his customary stage attire, which is to say, shirtless. And at 52, hey, more power to him—the man is in astounding physical condition.

But have at a look at the fall 2010 issue of Guitar Aficionado magazine, on newsstands now, which features Collen displaying utter sartorial splendor in a stylish fashion spread beginning on page 74. There’s Collen—looking exceptionally sharp in Dolce & Gabbana, Zegna, Ralph Lauren, Burberry and John Varvatos. Seriously, the guy looks fantastic.

Not only that, but the well-tailored guitarist wields several of his prized Jackson models in the layout, including his “Black Cracklejack” Soloist™, a PC1™ and a Dinky™. Well done.
