Jimi Hendrix’s 1950s/60s Fender Duo-Sonic (Sunburst)
Jimi was seen playing this guitar during a few gigs that he did with Curtis Knight in late 1965/early 1966. Interestingly, this guitar was apparently a gift from Knight, as noted in Michael Heatley’s book “Jimi Hendrix Gear” on page 48.
Unfortunately, there isn’t much information available about this guitar after Jimi’s time with Knight. It is likely that Jimi pawned the Duo-Sonic sometime before he left for London in late 1966 since the only guitar he carried with him to the UK was a white Stratocaster.
