Jimi Hendrix's Estate Is Suing A Man For Nearly A Million Bucks Over An Allegedly Stolen Hendrix-Owned Guitar!

| Filed under: Music MinuteLegal Matters

Jimi Hendrix's estate is suing over his Acoustic Black Widow guitar!

Jimi Hendrix will undoubtedly forever be a legend in the music industry, and even though the rocker only put out three albums during his lifetime, his music continues to impact new generations.

It makes sense, then, that his guitars are very, very valuable — and when one was allegedly stolen, his estate came down hard to
get it back!

The guitar - an Acoustic Black Widow — was owned by Jimi's dad after the rocker's 1970 death — and later given to Experience Hendrix, LLC, the licensing company in charge of Jimi Hendrix music and merchandise.

At some point in 2014, according to the lawsuit Experience Hendrix filed, the guitar was taken from their possession!

An auction house, Julien's, contacted Experience Hendrix this year trying to authenticate — you guessed it — an Acoustic Black Widow guitar allegedly owned by Jimi after a man named Brian Patterson brought it in trying to make a quick buck.

Apparently, Patterson got the ax from a buddy, who acquired it after a divorce with Janie Hendrix — yup, Jimi's sister!

If it's all confusing, here's the bottom line: the Experience Hendrix folks want the guitar back … ​and $750,000 in damages!

Yikes!!!
