The amp, which is valued at 20,000-40,000 ($32,404-64,808), was used in the legendary musician's last sessions in July 1970 at the Electric Ladyland Studios in New York.

Hendrix tragically died of an overdose in September 1970.

Last year, a Hendrix-played black Fender Stratocasterfrom his iconic appearance at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, when he appeared to set fire to it, auctioned for 180,000 ($287,500).

Famously he switched the guitar, setting fire to a cheaper model, which ironically sold for $495,292 in 2002.

A Gibson ES 345 Stereo guitar in cherry red, owned by Paul McCartney during his time in Wings, is valued at 15,000-25,000 ($24,303-40,505).
