    Hello Every one,
    Its my pleasure to share with you a build that created with Jimi Hendrix's childhood home. It all started in 2014 when I installed some of the wood from the home into the neck of a custom commission I did for Slash. It was a challenge as well as a lot of fun incorporating as much of the home as possible into the guitar, and we created 8 short build videos if yor interested in checking out they are linked here through my Website:

    Jimi started with the acoustic and his last recorded work was on an acoustic guitar, here is a link to his final and unreleased album " Black Gold"

    So very COOL, said the guitar builder that is old enough to have been at Woodstock
    But it was only later that I became a huge Hendrix fan, for that matter a huge blues fan of all the blues (this includes the "British Invasion" that should have been called: "Now that white guys are playing this stuff call blues that the black stations have been playing for 20 years, we white listeners will start to pay attention to it...not bad guitar licks...we might listen some more." Or maybe called something a little shorter and catchier.
    :cheers:
