A familiar Strat came up for auction at Sotheby's in London in April: a white 1968 Fender Stratocaster that had been played by Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock.
Bidding on Jimi's legendary Strat started at £48,000, before finally selling to the co-founder of Microsoft Paul Allen for a whopping £198,000 - a record breaking amount at the time.
It wasn't all about Jimi in 1990 though. New Strat hero Eric Johnson broke through with his album Ah Via Musicom, proving once again that the possibilities for Strat sounds were endless.
