Item Details
Description
Jimi Hendrix Early 1960s Japanese Sunburst Electric Guitar and Case W/(3) Letters of Provenance - This early 1960s Japanese sunburst electric guitar was played by the legendary guitarist and rock n' roll musician, Jimi Hendrix. According to our research, this guitar was used by Jimi shortly after he returned home from the U.S. Army in 1962. After leaving Fort Campbell Jimi moved to Clarksville, Tennessee for a short time where he played on the Chitlin' Circuit with the likes of Wilson Pickett, Slim Harpo, Sam Cooke, Ike and Tina Turner and Jackie Wilson before moving to Harlem, New York in early 1964 where he stayed until late 1966 playing venues such as Cafe Wha and the Cheetah Club. The guitar appears to be in well-loved condition and has no strings as we wanted to keep it in its original state. Jimi moved to London in late 1966 and left this guitar in New York at the apartment of one of his best friends, Mike Quashie. The guitar will come with the original signed, notarized letter of provenance from Quashie, along with a statement from the collector who our client acquired it from who spoke with Mike Quashie before he passed. The guitar also includes the original case and a third letter of provenance stating that the guitar was given to Jimi by his father. The winning bidder will also be provided with a chain of emails from the Hendrix estate (with contact information redacted) stating that they do not question the authenticity or provenance of the guitar. We have never seen provenance this thorough on an asset as historically significant. The documentation is incredible.
