Jag and jazzy - were they used in recordings of Experience or BOG?

Post by Guitarman555 » Mon Sep 19, 2022 10:50 am

I am wondering, if Jimi used Jag and Jazzy on his recording of Experience or BOG albums of Jimi Hendrix? I know that he used Jazzy extensively when playing with Little Richard, I saw a pic of Jimi with Jazzy and Jag during his solo career. But it would be interesting to know which songs he actually recorded with offsets...

Fire was recorded with the Jazzmaster. Not sure about any others, but I read somewhere once that Fire was a JM.

Yes, I have also read about Fire, I am wondering about other songs, I am sure that he didn´t use only strats, there are so many guitars in songs on Electric Lady Land and aftermortal BOG songs, that it would be boring to use only strats.

I have feeling that he used Duosonic even before he borrowed Jazzmaster for touring with Little Lichard, it was still before his solo career. I don´t think that he used it after. Duosonic was a students guitar and I think one of reason for using it was it was not expensive..

Offset without upper switches routing. Surely a Musicmaster?
