Gibson Honors Rock Legend Jimi Hendrix With Two Custom Guitar Models

Nov 19, 2020

Category: Gear

Unequivocally one of the most celebrated and influential guitar players of all time, Jimi Hendrix famously utilized a wide range of six-strings throughout his career, from his iconic white Fender Stratocaster to Les Pauls, Jaguars, and various Gibson models. And with 2020 marking the 50th anniversary of Hendrix’s death in September of 1970, the American outfit has decided to honor the Seattle-born music legend via a replica release of two of Jimi Hendrix’s most legendary electric guitars.

The first is a recreation of Jimi’s 1967 Gibson SG custom—which was famously played on his September 9, 1969 appearance and performance on the Dick Cavett Show. The next is a replica of Hendrix’s 1969 Flying V, which is being produced in right-handed and left-handed versions, though only 125 units of each are being built, while the ’67 SG is limited to just 150 units in total. On top of recreating Jimi’s guitars with widely impressive details, Gibson has also produced replica guitar cases for each limited edition custom that are modeled after Hendrix’s actual guitar cases. All made by hand at Gibson’s Nashville, Tennessee‎ headquarters, both Hendrix guitars are available now with pricing set at $9,999 for both.

Purchase: $9,999
