    In that iconic promo-shot of Jimi Hendrix bassist Noel Redding holding the Hagstrom H8, is it strung up left handed?

    Well, those are the two iconic promo shots I was thinking about, one where he's stepping out of the out-house and the other where he's wearing clown shoes. There's also a shot of the Experience and he's playing it so it must have been right handed at that time. I also have a photo of the three of them and both Noel and Jimi are playing H8s. Maybe the one in the pictures is actually Jimi's.

    The bass belonged to Hendrix and is therefore strung left handed.
