    Hendrix did not play acoustic guitars, not on stage and not in his recordings.  Neither did Eddie Van Halen  Nancy Wilson of Heart met Van Halen, and she was surprised to learn that he did not even own an acoustic guitar, and so she gifted him one. Even though both instruments are called guitars, they are very different. Being good at one does not often translate into being good with the other.

    Hendrix continues to influence musicians who play a wide range of musical instruments - not just guitar, and he influences people who play a wide range of different styles - not just rock or blues, so there are definitely a great many acoustic guitar players out there who have been influenced by Hendrix.
