Jimi Hendrix was arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music. Many musicians nowadays see Jimi Hendrix as a legend. Especially the guitarists, because Jimi Hendrix played mostly on his electric guitar.
Jimi Hendrix's favourite guitar, which he switched before setting fire to its cheaper version, has sold at an auction for pounds. It is one of the most famous rock 'n' roll guitars and was so good that Hendrix couldn't bring himself to burning it.
