On August 27, Sony Legacy will release Higher! — the first-ever career-spanning box set from Sly & The Family Stone.

To celebrate the release, GuitarAficionado.com presents the exclusive photo gallery below. It features several rare photos of Sly with various guitars, including Fenders and Gibsons. There’s even a vintage Ibanez ad for you to check out.
