OMG - *vintage* Hendrix strat on eBay

Recommended Posts

Yes - 'vintage'. There's no indication of what that means, or what year this particular model was produced, but THIS GUITAR WAS SIGNED BY JIMI HENDRIX' BROTHER, LEON.

 

From the item specifics: "Leon has an amazing signature. Quite breathtaking."

 

I mean, I don't have the money for an item like this, but if I did, I'd be overjoyed with having excess cash...

Leon Hendrix, on being a Boeing Co. draughtsman:

 

"You draw this bolt, or this nut and off it goes to some department and into a bit of machinery. So I quit.”

Better Leon than Jamie.

You must mean Janie Hendrix?

 

Interesting because she got Leon cut out of the Hendrix estate some years ago despite his DNA evidence - it is in his book "A Brother's Story".

I thought that the same court decision also prevented them (the estate) from using the Hendrix signature as a marketing tool - but I could be wrong on that.

This guitar wasn't even made until at least 20 yrs after Jimi's tragic death.

 

From the seller's blurb -

"Stratocaster signed by Jimi Hendrix brother and fellow Musician, Leon Hendrix.

 

I'm helping the estate sell THIS GUITAR to a new home, museum or HARDROCK style restaurant."

 

My bold and italics. I will be very surprised indeed if Leon Hendrix wants to help the estate - Hendrix Experience LLC - in any way whatsoever.

 

I think this is BS.

I would say that this signature has halved the value of an already not particularly valuable guitar anyway.

My attempts at being facetious never seem to work well around here... guess I just wasn't cut out for comedy. Sorry.

The neck has 22 frets, so it MUST be a real vintage Strat [scared]

I started to read the info on the Leon Hendrix guitar, but my eye was drawn to the ad below, for a lesser-priced guitar.

 

Yowza.

 

No wonder so many people spend a great deal of time and money on eBay!!

[woot]

Hey C-R, this ebay Leon Hendrix Strat thread is turning out to be a right rib-tickling side-splitting thigh-slappin' larf-a-minute chucklefest!

 

Um...

Well, the waterslides are a selling point. And I love the pictures of the neck pocket - cuz no one has seen the neck pocket of a 20 year old Strat before. :rolleyes:

The only Olympic White / Maple Strat I'd pay $22, plus for, would have JMH's signature on it.

No worries Marc...my attempts at humour are worse.....think I better go and play a few Wind Cries Marys...

 

Totally irrelevant but I like this flashy LP Ultima -
