Jimi was seen using this guitar on two occasions, one on May 31, 1968, at the Hallenstadion, Zurich. [‘Monster-Konzert’, Hallenstadion, Zurich. (30/05/1968)], and the other during the studio sessions for South Saturn Delta [Horn players on Hendrix’ South Saturn Delta]. Based on the photos, the guitar is a mid-50s Les Paul Special with two pickups, finished in what’s commonly known as TV yellow.
