I didn't bid on it. The seller didn't post any shipping charges and he doesn't use pay pal...

It only had one bid and it ended a couple hours ago...

There will be another...

i think it may have been a scam...i'm finding pics of Hendrix Strats that don't have the Fender logo reversed.

No dude it's not a scam.. I've seen these guitars in person...

It's a mirror image of the guitar Hendrix used at woodstock...

Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster® (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7/sid=040203035856209062212070135688/g=guitar/g=guitar/search/bigpid/base_id/37273/)

http://img3.musiciansfriend.com/dbase/pics/products/51/510058.jpg

A gem in Fender's Signature Series, a guitar from one of rock's greatest moments. This is a recreation of the Strat used by Hendrix to play the 'Star Spangled Banner" at Woodstock. The original was recently acquired by the Hendrix Museum. Actually this one 'mirrors" the Hendrix axe. Jimi's was a right hander strung left. This is a left hander, strung right. Olympic white finish only. Includes black Tolex case ($159 value).

They also made a Voodoo strat...

Jimi Hendrix Voodoo™ Strat® (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7/sid=040203035856209062212070135688/g=guitar/g=guitar/search/bigpid/base_id/34407/)

http://img3.musiciansfriend.com/dbase/pics/products/51/510107.jpg

Designed to capture Hendrix's elusive voodoo sound!

This guitar pays homage to the voodoo master himself. Its completely left-handed string path, combined with the scorching tone of reverse-staggered pickups and a reverse-angle bridge pickup completes the equation needed to capture Hendrix's sound. Combine all that with a right-handed contoured body, tremolo, and controls, and you're there. Right-handed alder body, left-handed neck, Fender® Schaller vintage F-machine heads, and an original synchronized tremolo. Includes black Tolex case ($159 value).



These were only made in 1997.. Cool guitars...

Yep, those were production models a few years back. I have played most of the signature Strats, but not the Hendrix sig. I would love to have one myself.

You guys ever attempted to play one of the Wingnut (Yngwie) Malmsteen models? Christ almighty! The damned scalloped fingerboard really fucked me up.

ELVIS

Three of my strats are scalloped by me.. and a much better job than the Yngwie models...:)

ELVIS

I love the scallops.. takes alot of getting used to though...

I might scallop my '68 reissue...
