Description

It’s pretty hard to believe that significant guitars and wardrobe from the Best Rock -N- Roll guitarist of all time, exists to this day. Are you ready for this Hendrix aficionados’? If you haven’t read it yet, get the book “Rock Roadie” and you will be able to read the story of Tappy Wright’s life and why he ended up with a few “souvenirs” from the ’60’s rock legend Jimi Hendrix. Wright used to be the general manager Anim lmted which was owned by Mike Jeffrey who managed Jimi Hendrix and the Animals and was also a Roadie for the Animals. He worked with Hendrix and some of the biggest rock legends of the day.

If anyone had access to Hendrix guitars, it would have been Tappy Wright. From Tappy’s collection comes this new Hendrix guitar offering. The letter of authentication reads as follows from Wright:

“Jimi Hendrix Owned and used Hofner Senator Guitar Serial No 6827 Circa 1958

In the sixties I worked as part of the Jimi Hendrix management team along with Mike Jeffery in the London Anim office in Gerrard Street. The above guitar was one of the items that Jimi stored in the office when He moved into his London apartment. In the Autumn of 1969 Jimi Hendrix gave this guitar along with other instruments clothing and personal effects to his manager Mike Jeffery. Mike had no use for them so in turn passed them onto me to keep or dispose as I wished. I was with Jimi when he bought this guitar in Portabello road market in London. It has been in my position (sic) then. – James “Tappy” Wright – Assistant Manager Anim Ltd.”
