The guitar that Jimi Hendrix played before he was famous sold yesterday for $265,000 (£164,675)–over 400 times the price he originally paid. The star’s Fender Duo-Sonic sparked a bidding frenzy at the Cameo Auctioneers music memorabilia sale.
Hendrix paid just £100 for the tan ‘59 / ‘60 Duo-Sonic when he was an unknown backing singer known a Jimmy James.
