Jimi Hendrix 1968 Caricature, illustrated here in October 1968 with his maple-neck Black Fender Stratocaster.
The guitar was first seen on stage at the Civic Auditorium in Bakersfield, California on October 26, 1968.
The Strat was used all the way until the last gig that The Experience played together, at The Isle Of Fehmarn on September 6, 1970.
In fact, the very last known photos of Jimi show him holding this exact guitar, taken by Monika Dannemann at the Samarkand Hotel, on September 17, 1970 – day before his death.
Hendrix was an American rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Although his mainstream career spanned only four years, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music, and one of the most celebrated musicians of the 20th century.
The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame describes him as “arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music”.
He began playing gigs with the Isley Brothers’ backing band and later with Little Richard, with whom he continued to work through mid-1965.
The Jimi Hendrix Experience was an American-English rock band that formed in Westminster, London, in September 1966. Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Jimi Hendrix, bassist Noel Redding, and drummer Mitch Mitchell comprised the group, which was active until June 1969.
By 1966 within months, Hendrix had earned three UK top ten hits with the Jimi Hendrix Experience: “Hey Joe”, “Purple Haze”, and “The Wind Cries Mary”. He achieved fame in the U.S. after his performance at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, and in 1968 his third and final studio album, Electric Ladyland, reached number one in the U.S.; it was Hendrix’s most commercially successful release and his first and only number one album.
The world’s highest-paid performer, he headlined the Woodstock Festival in 1969 and the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970.
Jimi Hendrix died from an accidental barbiturate-related asphyxia in London, England on September 18, 1970, at the age of 27.
After his death, the Stratocaster ended up with Monika Dannemann – his girlfriend at the time in who’s apartment at the Samarkand Hotel, Notting Hill Gate, Jimi spent his last hours.
Noel Redding was found dead in his home in Ireland on May 11, 2003. While touring in the US, Mitch Mitchell was found dead on November 12, 2008 in his room at the Benson Hotel in Portland, Oregon.
