Guitars played by Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley have been added to the Julien’s Auctions Icons and Idols Trilogy: Rock and Roll event on December 1st through the 4th.
That’s the same auction that has two Eddie Van Halen guitars one of which he built in his studio back in 1991, and a smashed Kurt Cobain guitar going up for bids.
One Hendrix ax, a white Fender Stratocaster that he used while living in New York, is expected to go for between $300,000 and $500,000. The other is a late ’60s William C. Stahl Style 8 acoustic guitar that Hendrix posed with on the cover of Life magazine in October 1969. That’s expected to sell for between $200,000 and $500,000.
Marley’s instrument, a rare 1975 Ovation 1612-4 Custom Balladeer acoustic-electric guitar, is expected to fetch over $80,000.
