Recently, I wrote an article titled “The Guitars of Jimi Hendrix“. Within a short time a gentleman named Howard E. Daniel contacted me with his story, after reading it with amazement, there was no way I could not share it with you. As my blog grows and more folks read it, sign up for free, and make comments every day, I make new friends. Howard sent me a link to his article and asked me to read it, I read it and now you can. We will be friends for a long time.
The article that Howard E. Daniel put so much effort into is one that contains many facts that seemingly are not well known, and based on my efforts to bring unknown or unusual subjects and valid guitar history to the forefront, this article is well qualified. The full story only came out because I mentioned that Jimi Hendrix played a red Danelectro single pickup Silvertone, nicknamed “Betty Jean”, as his second electric guitar.
We all know Jimi eventually ended up playing /abusing Fender Stratocaster guitars for the bulk of his career, this however is where it started for Jimi. Without further delay, click here to direct yourself to this great story.
As you know Guitar players Center is committed to delivering the type of guitar interest stories and articles that may never become known. Howard E. Daniel has a lot to be proud of. GPC thanks him for this contribution. Please share it on Stumble or your favorite social site/s. Thanks.
Read and Enjoy
