    It really depends on which drugs you've taken. If I had to stab blindly I'd say it was an Artist's rendition of that Black Strat he sometimes had. I can see it's on a screen but I'm sure there's some added effect (either camera or lighting).

    If you find the video again please share. To me it looks like a painting but I'm assuming you didn't grab stills of stills so I'm back to thinking altered video or camera/lighting effect.

    Just for the fun of it, i took a john lennon picture with his sonic blue and tried matching the colors and textures, I got close but you can clearly see it's some kind of blue still... while Hendrix is definitely on the green...
    of course it doesn't mean anything

    There’s definitely some picture quality issues altering the colour. His jumpsuit looks like it’s on fire and the pics @Ferpie just posted, the strings are blue.

    I think it’s probably a surf green that has faded maybe?

    Oh you're right, strings being blue means there's a lot of stuff going on there. Good catch

    This got me thinking, what if it's just an Olympic white with god aweful color settings?

    That’s exactly what it is. It’s definitely the poor quality footage/lighting causing the effect.

    Now seeing the video it’s a rosewood board mid to late 60’s Strat and I’m almost positive it’s surf green. That’s my guess now after seeing video clip.

    Yup, that's a green guitar. I had thought there was some psychedelic treatment, but nope.....Green Strat.

    Yeah me to, it’s definitely hard on the eyes but once I watched the video, it was clear. Consistent with at least a 64-65 Strat based off the pickguard and pearl dots.

    The second still really looks like a painting. If a picture says a thousand words & I guess a video says at least a few thousand.

    ya but “can anyone say they ever seen Bobbt Beers with a jacket with red lapells?” or Jimi with a green strat, I”ve seen an ice blue metallic, this looks pretty early, not even sure Ive seen Jimi with a sonic, could be white w green lights

    The video was originally in black and white, so someone for whatever reason colourized it... poorly, that's probably the reason all the colours look weird. You can definitely see that the colour of the guitar wasn't white.
