"Unseen for 40 years - a piece of music history"
Music memorabilia has always been a fun hobby but now it's also a very popular and lucrative pastime.
Just recently The Telegraph, a respected British newspaper, wrote "Music memorabilia strikes a chord with investors".
But what's more interesting is that HSBC, one of the world's largest banks, now has a page on their website devoted to investing in music memorabilia.
High praise indeed for the music memorabilia market!
Here's what HSBC has to say...
"the more personal the items are, the larger the sale price you can expect. Journals, previously unseen lyrics with copyright, and items that have been worn by the stars themselves often do well"
It's pretty good advice.
Items that have been worn, touched, and used by the stars themselves are the most sought after pieces.
This item is one of them...
Unseen for over 40 years, the whereabouts of this piece have been well discussed on internet forums and discussion boards.
This piece is totally unique and historically important.
If you are a music fan you'll appreciate how significant a piece this is.
It belonged to Jimi Hendrix and was worn by him during his famous Woodstock Festival when he belted out The Star Spangled Banner to 150,000 fans... an iconic performance that has cemented Hendrix as the No. 1 guitarist of all time, according to Rolling Stone magazine.
Personal memorabilia associated with that Woodstock performance is incredibly rare. Only two or three pieces exist. Items that Jimi Hendrix actually owned.
Of course one such item is his famous Fender Stratocaster guitar that was sold at a Sotheby's auction in 1990 for £198,000 ($300,000).
Just 20 years later that guitar is valued at over $1,000,000.
The item we're offering today is one of the other items owned by Hendrix, worn at the Woodstock Festival. It was an integral part of his performance.
Who knows what this item may be worth in future years...
