$168,000 for a Jimi Hendrix guitar

That's a lot of money for a second hand guitar, but hey, it belonged to Jimi Hendrix ...

A circa 1969 Fender Stratocaster once owned by Jimi Hendrix that's been on display at the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, since the museum opened in 1996, sold for $168,000 USD (more than double the pre-auction estimate of $80,000 - $120,000) to a private U.S. buyer at Christie's December 4, 2006, Rock and Pop Memorabilia auction in New York City.

And will the buyer play it? Most likely it will be put in a safe place only to auctioned yet again in a couple of years.
