In the book Jimi Hendrix Gear by Harry Shapiro, Michael Heatley, Roger Mayer, they mentioned that Jimi owned a one-pickup 1956 model of the Silvertone Danelectro. It was one of the guitars that he had the longest, it stayed with him several years. He called the guitar "Betty Jean" after his girlfriend, and left the guitar with her mother when he went off to the Army in 1960.
The source and notes on this submission are correct.
