i figure, the haircut and outfit put that album cover photo firmly in the context of jimis first album and concerts with the experience. early- mid 67, and thats when the first bbc recordings were done. (not that that has anything to do with the album art)
he didnt have a lot of guitars then.
i think it unlikely that that was anything other than a stock strat.
Who's the guy next to Jimi with the revolver in his hand?
