Jimi Hendrix's 'BLACK BEAUTY'

Jimi played for the very last time on THIS Stratocaster. Once kept at the Samarkand flat he and Monika Dannemann shared in London during September 1970, the black maple Stratocaster [1968; serial number 222625] has been (reverently) locked away since Jimi's passing and Monika herself expressed a wish that the guitar should not be handled.
