Wooah - so this is the guitar that Jimi used at the infamous Monterey rock fest in 1967. The black Fender Stratocaster used by Jimi Henrdix to play the best part of his set at the legendary Monterey Pop Festival and the Experience’s first appearance in the USA 1967. The CBS era instrument with contour style solid body and original candy apple case dates from late 1966/67 with rosewood neck and black solid body and white scratch protection. Triple pickups ,chrome key tuner pegs, mother of pearl dot fret inlays, three volume tone controls , tone switch , (spring back plate missing.) The guitar is in its original condition after use, various chips and wear scratches. Endless pictures of this guitar are available on the Monterey video, also photo news journals and biographies. The case is in a somewhat battered condition after further tours and gigs after Monterey.
