Electric guitar
(Flying V model)
Gibson, Inc.
United States

   No guitarist embodies the classic rock era more vividly than Jimi Hendrix. This Flying V model was played by the legendary "guitar god" for several months in 1967. The hand-painted psychedelic decoration replicates designs originally apllied by Hendrix himself, which were unwittingly removed by a subsequent owner.
