The first guitar torched on stage by Jimi Hendrix has been sold for £280,000 a London auction of rock memorabilia.
The Fender Stratocaster, burnt at the end of a show in north London in 1967, was bought by collector Daniel Boucher from Boston, Massachusetts.
"It was something I wanted to have," he told the BBC after the sale. "I decided I would go the distance to get it."
The instrument was only recovered from a garage last year and still bears the scorch marks of Hendrix's performance.
"It's one of a kind from one of a kind," said Mr Boucher, who described Hendrix as a "unique person" who "changed the game".
