Jimi Hendrix’s Monterey Guitar Is Heading To Auction

The famed guitar that the late Jimi Hendrix played at the Monterey Pop Festival is going to auction. This is not the guitar that he famously burned onstage. According to TMZ, the Black Pepper Fender Stratocaster Hendrix played most of the iconic show will go up for grabs on June 17. Heritage Auctions is handling the sale in Beverly Hills, where the famous instrument is starting at a $500,000 asking price. Experts expect the auction to reach at least $750,000. TMZ says a private collector from the U.K. currently owns the guitar and is now ready to part with it – right in the middle of the three-day Monterey Pop Festival’s 50th anniversary. The site says the instrument is still stringed to accommodate the left-handed Hendrix, and includes scratches from his belt. Copyright(c) 2017 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
