Jimi Hendrix guitar to make a million


A guitar Jimi Hendrix burnt on stage more than 40 years is about to go to auction.

The 1965 Fender Stratocaster, which he doused in lighter fluid and then set on fire at the Astoria in London in March 1967, is expected to fetch around $1million.

Hendrix injured himself after he lit the guitar and had to be taken to hospital with minor burns on his hands.

Hendrix did his burning guitar stunt twice during his career. The one up for auction is the only one still in existence.
