It depends what you wanna do from this mix I guess. DO you wanna make it sound like Purple Haze? Then you should consider loading a vintage kit of drums and cutting down that reverb on snare. Also muffle it a bit - remember, back in those days they had only two channel mixers.
As far as guitars go, I would get a little bit more fuzz on the guitar to give it sustain, and get bass little louder. Organ is decent.

I agree with Ivan,bass should be louder,but in my opinion,organ should be a bit louder then here.A little compression would be nice on the snare to.
