I didn't even know the story that Jimi Hendrix used a borrowed Telecaster for Purple Haze. A guy called Chris Adams has written the story and search for verification of this guitar and it sounds fascinating. This is all new to me and I now need to get the book of the detective story, but wondered if anyone knows about this? I certainly didn't, until I stumbled across it on Amazon. This is certainly Nerdville stuff, and that suits me fine, although it's ironic that Hendrix didn't give a stuff about what guitar he picked up. Lucky then that we do, eh?
