    That was my thought, too. I knew it'd been refinished, didn't know twice! It also doesn't have the original pickups in it. Duane was in love with them, and had them transferred into the Cherryburst that's in the RocknRoll HoF now.I don't think we'll see Galadrielle put that one up for sale, but you never know) They are PAF's, to the best of my knowledge, and it does sound magnificent. The timing is so convenient, what I think this is is the first evidence of "Gilmore Syndrome". "They got HOW MUCH for that black Strat?!?!, Time to move!" I predict we'll start to see more well-known vintage guitars go up for sale over the coming months.

    Steven Segal. Who, as it turns out, is a pretty serious collector!

    Thx. Knew I recognized him but the context of him playing guitar must have confused me!

    I can't fault anyone selling a guitar. Some other collector will end up with it and showcase it.

    Thanks for posting this. I didn't know Seagal was into guitars. It was very interesting.

    Oh Yeah, I'm not down on the owner, like I said, just sad at the prospect of it leaving Macon!

    Man, you'd think they woulda fixed the narrator's flub in saying how he owned 'Jimi Hendrix's Stratocaster" when referring to that Jazzmaster !

    He also plays. He's not in the big leagues but what I've heard was decent.

    What you saw must have been overdubbed.

    Two things about the Steven Seagal video:

    First off, Jimi Hendrix's Jazzmaster made me do a double take.

    Second, this makes the name of the band Steve n' Seagulls even funnier knowing that Seagal loves guitars so much.

    Just wanted to provide some historical background for the Hendrix Jazzmaster in the YT vid above:

    "Once Hendrix had found success, he sought out new guitars and would actually personally buy guitars from stores. One instance of this was on March 28, 1968, when Hendrix found and purchased a 1965 Fender Jazzmaster (serial #L84620) in Cincinnati, Ohio, shortly before his mythic gigs at Xavier University. (Famously, Seymour Duncan was in attendance at one gig. Less famously, my father, Edward Hopkins, was also in attendance.)

    During one of the two Xavier gigs, it has been stated that Hendrix popped a string twice on the same Stratocaster that night (and even restrung the Strat himself while the crowd waited) before ultimately switching to his new Jazzmaster for the rest of the set.

    Even though Hendrix is on record stating that he bought the guitar for “recording purposes,” he ended up using it live over the course of the next several shows. It is believed to be owned now by Steven Seagal."
