    I've got the book Electric Gypsy that gives a great rundown. Although he's known for the Strat/Marshall he owned lots of amps and guitars.

    Dizzying yet fascinating, like Jimi. No wonder I was so in awe of him. I found it remarkable that after quite a procession of guitars pawned, stolen, given away or just ‘gone’ he did his first USA tour with only one.

    Thanks for the link.

    Yes, it was a rather short-lived experience... :) (no disrespect to Jimi)

    Interesting account of the aforementioned in Electric Gypsy (IMO, the definitive biography of James Marshall Hendrix)

    whats really cool is he did all that he did in just slightly over 2 years then he was gone, to be truthful I was never fond of his direct leads but his interchord melodics blow me away

    this piece is so beautiful yet impromptu it shows his genius

    Besides playing Strats, there is one thing that I learned from Hendrix that is significant to me. His use of coil cords. Many guitarists I’ve talked to think that a discussion of coil cords and Strats is ridiculous. But I find their effect on Strat tone to be profound and beneficial. Just google some pictures of Hendrix playing his Strats. You will see that he used coil cords with his Strats.

    Nice! I have a half dozen, from vintage to new. They all sweeten up my Strat.

    I liked those videos. I'm actually going to look forward to the amp/effect video that he teased at the end of the video the most

    Hendrix was left handed. That’s a right handed accordion. :twisted:

    While visiting London many year ago, my wife and I visited the Hard Rock vault. A highlight of my life was being handed his Isle of Wight Flying V.
