I admit it..I don't see the connection to Hendrix..
I don’t either but it still looks nice. Maybe one of our more musically inclined can explain?

My take on this would be...

1. The Quote from Hendrix "Music is my religion"

2. Guitar of choice is a Fender Strat which uses single coil pick-ups. When you look down on them they look like the
hour indices. Also the lines going around would be the strings.

3. The pattern on the inner circle IMHO can be looked at as the pattern on his bandana and many of his guitar
straps. Similar to two of my straps in the pic below.

If I missed anything please weigh in.

I can't figure out what they mean by "authentic" in the first place. The man's been off this mortal coil since 1970.

Yep. The subtlety of the front and the screaming 20-point font on the back don't jibe.

I'd say wait it out. Weil's Bowie piece is under 600 bucks gray now.

And hey, thanks for the case back shot.
