Jimi Hendrix’s 1950s/60s Fender Duo-Sonic (Sunburst)

Jimi was seen playing this guitar during a few gigs he did with Curtis Knight in late 1965/early 1966. This guitar was apparently a gift from Knight [Jimi Hendrix Gear, by Michael Heatley, p.48]. It is likely that Jimi pawned it some time prior to leaving for London in late 1966.
