Hi, I am new here. Are there stories that tell why Hendrix chose the Strat as his main guitar? Before he made it big, Gibson LPs were the guitar of choice to play rock mainly because of Cream, Bloomfield, the Who .... Hendrix's choice of strat probably was unusual considering the Gibson trend. I would appreciate to read stories why Hendrix chose the Strat. Maybe, without Hendrix, I would be playing a Les Paul today. Thanks.
