A few days ago, we posted a video in which Dweezil Zappa gives us an up-close look at the Strat Jimi Hendrix gave Dweezil’s father, Frank Zappa.

However, he never actually plays the guitar in the video. In fact, it’s unplugged the entire time.

Fortunately, Dweezil recently posted a video of his own called “Two Minutes with the Hendrix Strat.” This time, he plays it! (for two minutes, in fact.) You can watch it below.

Hendrix gave the guitar to Frank at the 1968 Miami Pop Festival. Frank made numerous changes to its electronics and hardware over the years before giving it to Dweezil. Enjoy!
