Well even that Microsoft dude (not Bill, the other one..) wasn't interested, although he could miss the money...i mean he makes MILLIONS AND MILLIONS AND MILLIONS, so a ordinary J. Hendrix guitar is like a tip for him....

Re: Adrian, Fascinating, he undertook a ritual burning of his large headstock Sunburst 4 Bolter rosewood fingerboard strat? Is this documented somewhere? I do recall in a Guitar player intervew that his middle pick up was 'unwinding' but he felt obliged to investigate its evolving sonic properties, as that was the sort of guitar player he wanted to be

I now recall at the start of 200 Motels that someone was filmed dancing in the doorway of a shed[?] and to the left of the dancer was a strat body hanging up on the wall.

I reckon this is the Hendrix body that Eric Barrett gave to Frank.

I havn't got a tape of the film, so cannot check
