    This thread reminds me of an article I read many years ago about he legitimacy of the plethora of white strats being claimed as having belonged to Jimi Hendrix. In the article they explained that after Jimi became well known, every time he'd pass through NYC he's go by Manny's Music and buy a dozen (or more) white strats, play one for a show or two and give it away. The article opined that there were a ton of white Hendrix strats floating around so it would be near impossible to verify any of them as legit, and that because there were so many their value as collectors pieces was marginal.

    My ex and I, years ago, were backstage at a BB King concert. My ex, not watching where she was going, knocked Lucille off the guitar stand. I caught it, put it back on the stand. I was a bit freaked out - Lucille!!!. However, IIRC, there was a second Lucille backstage. Who knows, there may have been more in cases.
