1970 Rosewood Fender Stratocaster, a.k.a. Hendrix’s lost strat?
Just like they did for George Harrison a year earlier, the fender people had decided to make a guitar for Jimi Hendrix entirely made of Rosewood. Fate had other plans for Hendrix who passed away just after the guitar completion in 1970. The Rosewood Stratocaster never ended in his hands. Would the Electric Gipsy have enjoyed playing this heavy weight remains a mystery.
Masterbuilt by Jason Smith, this superb Custom Strat is a copy of the infamous 1968 model. It is also entirely made of rosewood.
Usually only used on the neck because of its weight, rosewood has amazing tonal qualities. Guitars made out of rosewood are expected to have an overall warmer tone with soft highs and a deep, pronounced resonance.
Traveller guitars make, as their name suggests, guitars for travel. That means light weight and compact in size. In order to loose the headstock, the 2009 Traveller Escape MKII has its tuners encased wihin the body.
This 2009 Yamaha SG2000 Special Vintage White is a 50 piece limited edition reissue of a legendary guitar. In 1976, Yamaha dramatically boosted its worldwide reputation with the release of the SG2000. Originally conceived under the council of Carlos Santana, the SG2000 was appreciated for its quality, especially at a time were Gibson and Fender were not at their best.
