A guitar used by JIMI HENDRIX to compose several of his classic songs is expected to fetch $225,000 USD at auction next month (Dec10).

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.
