Fender went Hendrix mad in '97, releasing two models celebrating Jimi's legacy.
First up was the Jimi Hendrix stratocaster, which was essentially a reversed left-handed '60s spec Strat, rejigged to give right-handed players the feeling that they'd reversed their Strat just like left-handed Jimi had to. In a truly bizarre move, they even reversed the headstock decal, so that it only read properly in the mirror.
Next up came the Hendrix Monterey Strat, which recreated the hand-painted artwork of the instrument that Hendrix played at the Monterey Festival in 1967, and looked very nice, if you like that sort of thing (which quite a lot of people did).
