    I think that this was asked before. In fact ,I might have asked it. We all remember the George Harrison Rosewood Telecaster that he used on the ,Let it Be album and the roof top concert. Supposedly Fender made a Stratocaster for Jimi Hendrix at the same time. Jimi had died before Fender could get it to him.Where is this guitar? Has it ever turned up anywhere? Thanks Alan

    Here it is. Around the six minute mark in the clip.

    I wonder though, if it was made for Hendrix, then why isn't it a lefty?

    I wouldn't bet the farm on that . I recall being at The Music Zoo to pick up my Rosewood Telecaster when they brought me a Rosewood Strat to check out . Of course , since it was backwards ( right handed ) , it was little more than a beautiful curiosity to me . I seriously doubt that the Rosewood Strat in the video is the '69 . More than likely , it is a modern CS build .

    You could be right, I wouldn't know.

    Did Jimmy Page steal it? He steals everything.
