Hendrix Guitar Back On Block

A San Diego company has won the right to sell a 1967 Jimi Hendrix guitar after reaching a settlement with his estate that ended a dispute over ownership and authenticity of the modified Fender StratocasterExperience Hendrix LLC, the entity that manages Hendrix music and marketing rights had challenged Rock Star Guitars right to sell the instrument.  It was reported that Experience Hendrix claimed both that the guitar had been stolen in 1970 and that it had never belonged to Hendrix.  Blocked from attempting to auction the instrument in 2001, the sellers filed a suit that was later settled in their favor for $131,000.  They can now sell it. Whether anyone is ready to drop $500k for it is another matter.
