    1997 Fender Jimi Hendrix Tribute Stratocaster.

    American left handed Strat turned righty.

    Even the logo is backwards.

    Fender is now offering non American JH Strats with gig bags.

    BTW, the was a Christmas gift from my wife back in 1998.

    It was $600.00 then with correct year rectangular case.

    It's not my go to Strat because my forearm always hits the 3 way.

    It's a keeper though.

    I had a Teisco ET460 in the late 70's. 4 pickups, each with a slider switch that did... something. It tuned easy and stayed in tune well. Surprisingly good guitar.

    A friend and I stripped it down and clear coated it. It actually had nice wood grain and looked good natural.

    I hated it. I wanted a Les Paul. I cannot remember what happened to that guitar. The late 70's are kinda hazy now....

    That's the girl. Fanny Mae & Freddie Mac meant I needed moolah to keep my business afloat, and the pups in there were one of many sacrifices... still have the body & neck... cool guitars too, sorry you had to sell yours.

    Thanks.
    To me one of the most appealing things about Brads signature Fernandes is that he actually plays one. In concert. All the time. His "original" was a Fender partscaster he bought in a box. Circa 1984 When Fernades went to do his signature guitar, they went over his Fender with Japanese precision to (re)produce a decent clone.
    He did tour with his Fender for many years, but finally retired it from touring so he wouldn't wreck it. Any more that it was already from heavy modifications over the years. Since then he has been using one (or more?) of his Fernandes signature stats for touring. Not because of any connection to Fernandes now, but because he really likes it!
    And I can see why, it is an awesome player.
