"This is his main black Strat, it's called Nero, which is a '66 with a '68 neck. Josh loves to go at it with this. I'm not entirely sure why it's got this different neck on it. If you look carefully, you're almost on the point of losing the E off the side. The neck is actually a little bit too narrow for the pocket. I don't know why that happened along the way but it was handed to me one day," says Josh Klinghoffer's guitar tech.more
Another guitar was given to Jimi’s record company Anim Limited, where it fell into the hands of James ‘Tappy’ Wright, a former roadie of Hendrix. James later sold it at auction for $360,000. Jimi played it at Monterey International Pop Festival in 1967 before switching to a different guitar which he set on fire. There were claims that this was Hendrix’s favorite guitar. It is obvious though that this is a different Strat, featuring rosewood neck instead of maple which was on the Black Beauty. Source: www.groundguitar.com/jimi-hendrix-gear/more
