Jimi's first ever Fender Stratocaster was a white 1964 model with rosewood fingerboard. He obtained it in New York, from Manny's Music, with funds from his girlfriend Carol Shiroky. It cost $289. He actually bought it from Jeff Baxter, later of Steely Dan, who was working at Manny's as an assistant, and he remembers the incident clearly. Citation for this information can be found in several pages (including 61 and 62) of the book [*Jimi Hendrix Gear*](https://books.google.com/books?id=fpUuXZU9-1QC&printsec=frontcover).more
