Noel Redding also used the same bass on several songs on Axis Bold As Love,as noted here.

According to this,the bass was sold at auction in 1994,but no mention of who bought it.

I have the Hendrix/Curtis Knight recordings mentioned here. I didn't know that Jimi was playing that same Hagstrom bass on them.I'll give them another listening!

great info

Re: 8 string bass 68' hendrix experience/electric ladyland

The Hagström H8 used by Jimi is supposed to be number 723006, which is from the very first batch made in 1967. (http://www.hagstrom.org.uk/hagstrom_fans.htm)

I'm the happy owner of number 723231. :-)
