Hendrix Guitar to Go Up for Bid Next Month November 17, 2010Posted by David W. King in Uncategorized.
The Epiphone acoustic cost the rock legend just $22.50 (£15) when he bought it from a New York store in the 1960s. Hendrix enjoyed playing the instrument so much, he took it with him when he later moved to London.
Hendrix’s ex-girlfriend Kathy Etchingham, who dated the rocker when he lived in the British capital in the years before his death, says, “Jimi loved that guitar – he played it constantly… Jimi used it for almost everything he composed in the U.K.”
The instrument will be sold by London auctioneers Bonhams on December 15 2010.
