In 1997 to honor Jimi Hendrix, Fender Musical Instruments and Experience Hendrix, LLC (the family of Jimi Hendrix)  released the Jimi Hendrix Tribute Stratocaster. It was modeled after the same Strat that Jimi played at his historic performance at the Woodstock Music Festival of August 1969.  The Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster, built in Fender's factory in Corona, California, was a left-handed model strung right-handed and reversed, with the strap button on the lower horn, so that right-handed players would appear as Jimi did when looking at themselves in the mirror. The guitar, was available in Olympic White, also had a maple neck with a large late-60s-style headstock, classic Schaller "F" tuners and woven strap. The icing on the cake, however, was the pickup configuration--three reverse staggered vintage Stratocaster pickups that are positioned perfectly for boning up on Jimi Hendrix classics such as "Wild Thing," "Purple Haze" or even "The Star Spangled Banner."
