Jimi Hendrix at age 15 with his first electric guitar, 1958.
Pictured here is rock legend Jimi Hendrix, or as he was still known as in this photo, Johnny Allen Hendrix. Even back in elementary school, Hendrix had a habit of rocking out… of course it was with a broomstick he’d pretend was a guitar.In 1957, Hendrix happened to find a ukulele tossed out in a trash heap, so he began following along to Elvis songs.
By mid-1958, Hendrix was 15-years old and the proud owner of his very first acoustic guitar, which he scored for a whopping 5 bucks. Within three months of playing with his band the Velvetones, he knew he had to go electric.
