Bernie has developed one of the most unique and expansive private guitar collections in the world.

Over the last two years the collection has been extensively photographed by Melvyn May using a special “light painting” technique to reveal them in all their glory, from the unseen wonders of the world famous “The Beast” to the intricate detail on his much signed and cherished Martin Coletti. Every guitar comes with its own story, from how it was acquired to where and when it was played, you will be able to see the very guitar he used during the writing and recording of some rock classics, many anecdotes of some pretty famous people encountering his guitars on the road and in the studio.

He is primarily known for his work with Whitesnake having written or co-written many of the group’s hit songs, such as Here I Go Again, Trouble and Fool For Your Lovin’ with David Coverdale.
