Know any good acoustic guitar songs dating
Please note that the period between 19 is very hard to research properly due to not only lack of photos in general, but lack of photos with correct dating.Although there are numerous sources available online describing a timeline of events between those years (we’ve used Early Timeline), there’s a lack of a good a source with organized photo galleries that would immensely make the research of Hendrix’s early guitars much easier.This is also confirmed in the book Starting At Zero: His Own Story.In one of the letters Jimi sent to his father during the army days, he specifically asks for the guitar to be sent to him, noting that it’s still at Betty’s (his girlfriend) house.
The photo dates to Hendrix’s Army days (circa 1961), which means that he carried the guitar together with him into the Army – although it looks like he removed the pickguard and added some decals to the lower portion of the body.Based on Guitar HQ’s model history [Epiphone Wilshire model guitars 1959 to 1970], the tremolo was fitted on the models made between 1959-1961, and between mid-19.Jimi’s guitar fits the description of the model produced in 1961, which as you might guess – didn’t come with a tremolo.After coming back from the Army in 1962 Hendrix acquired an Epiphone Wilshire.
It is assumed that this was from the money he made playing with the Danelectro, which as previously noted, was indeed borrowed from a friend in the army.
Towards the mid 1960s he started using Fenders, starting with a 1959 Fender Duo-sonic which he played with Isley Brothers.
