    I'd be surprised if that's not one of his new signature Strats.

    Nice time to cue up the Band of Gypsys, Who Knows....

    My 1970 Strat is a 4-bolt neckplate large headstock guitar, That I always say Jimi could have played it. It wasn't until late 1971 when bullet truss rods and 3-bolt neckplates were issued.

    My 1970 has a 1968 neck so it is a late sixties guitar. But you are right, Jimi might not have played one before his demise.

    I mean, he very well could have played a 4-bolt '70 before he died! So no harm in dreaming!

    My point was really just that when I think of "'70s Strats" I think three bolt with bullet trus.

    (Also, super jealous of your 70/68!)

    You're right, but I associate him with the big headstocks. It was widely regarded in the 70's but he's the one who was using big headstocks and spread the lOOOve for it.

    This was my experience as well. The third one I bought turned out to be an OK player after I replaced everything but the body with after market parts. Still heavy though.
