More on The Arizonar
The Hendrix owned and played 1967 Fender Sunburst Stratocaster guitar is the undisputed star lot of the auction. Hendrix played the guitar on the song Devil's Children, recorded in 1967. It's accompanied by a letter of provenance from Brian Levine, who manages the estate of Hendrix's US Manager, Bob Levine, as well as his trusted long-time assistant Kathy Eberth (Mrs. Levine).

"There's nothing more coveted in the music memorabilia market than a Jimi Hendrix guitar," said Jeff Woolf of Iconic Auctions. "It's a true honor to be able to represent one of Jimi's guitars. With the market so robust at the moment it'll be interesting to see where this one lands. It's been a while since any Hendrix guitars have surfaced and we anticipate huge interest in this piece."

Regarding Hendrix's handwritten lyrics to the song Crosstown Traffic, Mr. Woolf said, "These are very rare and desirable, since you rarely see handwritten lyrics to published songs." He added, "Jimi's lyrics are coveted in any form, whether they are published or not. But the fact that these lyrics are for Crosstown Traffic —one of Jimi's most popular songs—is huge. It's been a while since any Hendrix lyrics of this magnitude have entered the market. It'll be exciting to see where they end up."

The Taylor Hawkins personally owned and played drum kit is especially newsworthy, as the late Foo Fighter passed away just last month.
