In 1968, Miami, Florida hosted two Pop Festivals, one in December and another one in May. Both festivals had an impressive line-up of bands, but it was in the second of the two festivals, May 18-19, (both held at Gulfstream Park) that the Jimi Hendrix Experience performed. While the band gave an incredible performance the first day, the second day was rained out. So Hendrix, along with some of the other headliners including Frank Zappa, headed to a nearby bar to jam, giving the lucky patrons there an impromptu concert they would never forget. Offered here is the actual Electric Guild Starfire V left-handed cherry acoustic guitar with serial number EN 1778, that Jimi played that day with Frank Zappa, Arthur Brown and Noel Redding. The photograph shown here was taken that day at the bar and the guitar is clearly shown being played by Jimi. Jimi's father, Al Hendrix, has signed the guitar, with the date, "Al Hendrix 12/92" on the body in black sharpie pen. Very good, stage used condition. Comes with documentation of authenticity including a letter of authenticity from the person who first discovered it, a General Warranty Bill of Sale from the consignor, including all of their notes about the history of the sale, as well as an 8 x 10 color photograph of Jimi playing the guitar at the Wreck Bar. Also comes with a Gotta Have Rock & Roll® Certificate of Authenticity.
