Jimi Hendrix’s Fender Rock’N’Roll Strings

Jimi most likely used the standard gauge (.010, .013, .015, .026, .032, .038), though Mike Bloomfield says Buddy Miles insists that Jimi used very heavy strings on the bottom, a medium gauge on his A and D, a Hawaiian G string, a light(not super-light) B string, and a super-light E. This was supposedly not just for experimentation, but something that Jimi did all the time because he thought it would keep the whole guitar in tune a little better. [original source needed]
