Jimi Hendrix’s Mosrite Joe Maphis 12/6 Doubleneck

This guitar was shown at the EMP museum during a special Hendrix event. According to the museum’s info, Jimi purchased it at Manny’s Music shop in New York and used it for the recording of “Spanish Castle Magic” in late 1967.

Unfortunately, beyond what was stated by the EMP, we couldn’t find anything else about the guitar. As far as the specs, the guitar had two necks – one with six strings, and other with twelve. The pickups in it (if original) were single-coils, which usually measure up to 13K in output, which is very high compared to Fender pickups which measured around 6k Ohms on the models made in the early 60s.
