Just wondering if you guys had seen this for sale on Ebay for $175,000. :o
I could buy a house in Tasmania for that, some people have money to burn :D

Y'know, thats what I was thinkin'. But, one thing I do know, Jimi did use a Black Strat during the Isle of Wight Festival in August of 1970 and I think there was one more gig in Germany after that, but I don't know much about that one.

It would be so hard to prove it was his.  Basically, you have to have a video, picture, autograph, and DNA sample to prove it!!!!
