    That show was actually on the 3rd.
    A friend took pics at that show & at the August show. I have a bunch of his shots. Jimi, Sabbath, at the Dome. Led Zep at Cobo Hall. That pic above may be his.

    Jimi played an Olympic white Strat at that show also.

    Ive seen a mustang that he used, its in the hard rock cafe in orlando. I remember the waitress told me there was a hendrix guitar, so i got up and looked. I remember being like wtf? he played a jazzmaster?

    also, I think his second favorite (obviously a very distant second) was the flying v, hes used that a few times.

    Yes, actually it wasn't all the guitar doing the work

    Jimi knew a little I guess

    Jimi used strats bc they were cheap. I don't think he's gone on record as having smashed too many of his Gibsons...

    are you kidding me? Jimi hendrix may have started with strats cause they were cheap, but Im pretty sure once his career was rolling he could get whatever the hell he wanted
