    I had a look at some Jimi reference material and apparently he had a 1967 blue Strat with a Rosewood board.
    Also the link below has him with a 1966 Lake Placid Blue Strat.

    The mystery deepens…:)

    Apparently he also had a 1967 and 1968 white Strat with Rosewood board. Note the date of the film footage as the description says its 1967.

    The date will determine the latest year the guitar could be and hence the colour/neck material.

    for whatever that means, i ran this still into a color converter and this is what I got. The surroundings look pretty good... that guitar was probably red

    I always thought it was Fiesta Red from the b&w footage when I'd seen it earlier.

    In this instance, I'll say it's the color of money!

    Cool color though...
