What's your question? Other than, "what's the deal"?

It was a '67 Stratocaster.
Right-handed, with a flipped nut.
Jimi painted it, much of it with nail polish.

He "sacrificed" it at Monterey Pop.
It was burned, smashed, & tossed into the crowd.
While most of it is lost to history, the EMP in Seattle has part of the guitar.

No it was a fiesta red 1965 strat. A 67 would have the bigger headstock :-)

I think they built like 210 of them...I know John Mayer has one and Kenny Wayne Shepard....If you ever come across the site sacrificeguitars.com dont buy their monterey strat for 300 dollars....it's complete utter shit!

And yes that artist did the reissues

The reissues that Fender made though not historically dead on accurate are one of the coolest and most desirable Strats out there!
