A production that honors the universe of Jimi Hendrix and Philippe Druillet around an image and a mythical guitar.
• The image: the cover of the posthumous reissue in 1975 of the album “Electric Ladyland” by Jimi Hendrix produced by Barclay and designed by Philippe Druillet.
• The guitar: Fender's most legendary model, the US stratocaster, produced for the occasion in a very limited series of 7 copies signed and illustrated by Philippe Druillet of this now legendary visual. It is indeed a stratocaster that Jimi Hendrix will immolate on stage at the Monterey Festival in June 1967, raising it at the same time to the rank of iconic object. It is obvious that this guitar is destined to become a cult object of high collection bringing together fans of rock and comics.
