Have you heard the expression, "screaming guitars"? Jimi Hendrix's guitar must surely have screamed after he set it on fire back in the late 60s. His charred guitar is now estimated to be worth about a million dollars! It is up for auction with other rock memorabilia, and is expected to be sold for 500,000 British pounds!
To listen to Hendrix's guitar work, borrow Voodoo Child: The Jimi Hendrix Collection [CD ROCK HEN]. Or, better yet, borrow Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace and Music [DVD WOO] and watch Hendrix in action.
The video below shows Hendrix smashing his guitar, which I'm sure hurt almost as much as immolation!
We have a number of items in our collection that deal with guitars, look for them in the 787.87 section. We also carry the magazine, Guitar Player [YA MAG GUI].
