Jimi Hendrix Fender amplifier valued at $65,000 ahead of December 4 sale

A 1969 Fender Twin Reverb amplifier belonging to Jimi Hendrix is auctioning at The Fame Bureau in London on December 4.

The amplifier was used in Hendrix's final recordings in New York

The amp, which is valued at £20,000-40,000 ($32,404-64,808), was used in the legendary musician's last sessions in July 1970 at the Electric Ladyland Studios in New York.

Hendrix tragically died of an overdose in September 1970.

Last year, a Hendrix-played black Fender Stratocaster from his iconic appearance at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, when he appeared to set fire to it, auctioned for £180,000 ($287,500).

Famously he switched the guitar, setting fire to a cheaper model, which ironically sold for $495,292 in 2002.

A Gibson ES 345 Stereo guitar in cherry red, owned by Paul McCartney during his time in Wings, is valued at £15,000-25,000 ($24,303-40,505).

A 1958 Gretsch Chet Atkins Country Gentleman guitar owned by the Monkees' Mike Nesmith, and signed by all four members of the band, is valued at £10,000-15,000 ($16,202-24,303).

Gretsch were the official musical sponsors of the Monkees, who started out as the stars of their self-titled TV show in 1966.

They went on to become one of the most successful pop groups of all time, going on to sell over 50m records worldwide.
