Title Me!

On December 15, 2010, Bonhams will be auctioning an Epiphone FT79 acoustic guitar (serial #62262 built in NY in 1951) that was once owned by Jimi Hendrix. The guitar was acquired by Hendrix in the late 1960's and according to his girlfriend at the time, Kathy Etchingham, quickly became his favorite.

The guitar, noted as the instrument he wrote and arranged many songs including a reworking of Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower", is expected to sell for in excess of £150,000 ($250,000). For more information visit www.bonhams.com.
